Apple TV+ Releases Creepy New "Servant" Teasers

Apple TV has been busy jump-starting the promotional run for the many new series that will be premiering on their soon to be launched streaming platform. In recent weeks, the chatter was stirred up by the trailer release for "See," a new fantasy series starring Jason Momoa as a blind man trying to protect his sighted children in a world where everyone is blind and sight is considered something dangerous and threatening by the world's superstitions.

Now the latest buzz is for "Servant," a mysterious new series co-produced by M. Night Shyamalan. Though Shyamalan is not credited as a writer or director, he is set to appear with the show's promotional visit to New York Comic Con next week. Just today, Apple TV released teasers for the show that reveal very little to the audience. In the first one (entitled "Jericho"), a strange-looking baby is shown rocking in a cradle while his mother and babysitter are overheard talking about him.

This fits in well with the few tidbits of information that have been released thus far. The only premise that had been given thus far was that married couple Sean and Dorthy Turner (portrayed by Toby Kebbell and Lauren Ambrose) hire a young nanny Leanne (Nell Tiger Free) to help care for their newborn. The running tagline about further plot developments is that not all is as it seems. It's an almost frustratingly vague descriptor but completely on brand with M. Night Shyamalan's brand of mystery and in all likelihood, plot twists. Additionally, Rupert Grint is another announced member of the cast, playing a character called Julian Pearce.

The second teaser (entitled "Cricket") shows Leanne brushing her teeth and giving a voiceover about how her grandmother used to say that if a cricket came into your own home that something bad would happen shortly thereafter.

Here is where we finally begin to get a sense of what has happened in the series, as the trailer description box offers further information about the series. "From M. Night Shyamalan, Servant follows a Philadelphia couple in mourning after an unspeakable tragedy creates a rift in their marriage and opens the door for a mysterious force to enter their home."

From this, we can speculate that Sean and Dorothy Turner had a baby that died and have now opted to purchase one of those 'realistic' babies as a means of coping and struggling to let go. Perhaps the further escalation of drama and conflict comes from a supernatural force or merely the belief that supernatural ongoings are infiltrating their once peaceful home. Either way, we'll be tuning in to find out!
