Servant was renewed for its third season even before season two premiered earlier this year, and fans will be happy to know that plan is already in place for how the series will all wrap up. Speaking in a previous interview with ComicBook.com, Shyamalan revealed he didn't have an ending in mind at first but now he knows how it will conclude.
"I had a kind of aspirational end point, after season one, when we were doing season one but then season two was when I said, 'I can't do this anymore until we know where we're going.' I have to know where we're going," Shyamalan said. "I can't keep making episodes and not know exactly where we're heading and why this person is there and what they're saying means this. So, we worked it all out and I spent the pandemic the first, whatever, months when we were all home, everyone was shut down and locked down, just writing out everything I wanted and dreamed for the show for the remainder."
After season two of the series premiered it earned the endorsement of none other than horror maestro Stephen King who tweeted: "If there's anything creepier or more binge-worthy than this, I don't know what it is. Tight focus, great acting, and atmosphere."
