Critics Consensus

Though Servant's slithering mystery often wanders into dark, crowded corners, its claustrophobic atmosphere and powerful performances build enough tension to keep viewers hooked.

Critic Reviews for Servant Season 1

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (15)

Servant has the potential to carry through on its promise. But the aesthetic identity established by Shyamalan in that first episode is strong.

Dec 2, 2019 | Full Review…

Like us, Julius can't resist opening doors better left shut, listening to conversations better left unheard and seeing things one can never un-see.

Dec 2, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

It's eerie and unsettling in ways that television often tries to be but rarely accomplishes.

Nov 27, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a good premise, surrounded by good ideas, and yet there's no saving something that was never alive to begin with.

Top Critic

Placing time and distance between each episode may mask the sad discovery that very little happens in the first season of Servant -- certainly not enough to justify more than a two-hour jaunt into upper middle-class ennui.

Dec 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Doesn't seem to have the emotional curiosity to earn its premise.

Dec 2, 2019 | Full Review…

The show quickly picks up and becomes a rather big surprise for Apple's streaming platform.

Dec 2, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The show unravels its story through its brisk half-hour episodes by maintaining the aforementioned delicate balance, and rewarding patience with deep character growth.

Nov 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Thereby hangs a dark tale.

Nov 26, 2019 | Full Review…

For all of the plot's shortcomings, moment-to-moment Servant is a delight with a surprising amount of laughs to share.

Nov 26, 2019 | Full Review…

We're not expected to believe any of it, but [M. Night] Shyamalan and his team make the premise vibrate with a disturbing sense that we could.

Dec 3, 2019 | Full Review…

By bucking the trend of bloated runtimes and unnecessarily long seasons, Servant proves that it's a great thriller, not in spite of its short runtime; but because of it.

    Really enjoying the suspense! Optimistic for this series so far.
  • 2d ago
    Absolutely shocking and thrilling! You just don't know what comes next. A little rough to watch from time to time being a mom but I still highly recommend.
  • 2d ago
    Very eerie and intriguing. Love the slow burn suspense.
  • 2d ago
    I actually like the series. You have to get passed the first episode. I especially like the modern music mixed with the modern slang. It's like a parallel universe.
  • 3d ago
    Servant has truly set a new bar in the streaming content wars. A unique blend of slow-burning, character driven psychological drama keeps us unequivocally invested. Plus, with its never-ending supply of tension and opportunities for nervous laughter to boot, I find myself sitting closer and closer to the edge of my seat with each episode.

    Great story so far, really excited to explore the plot.
  • 4d ago
    This isn't how human people behave. Boring and artificial.
  • 4d ago

  • 4d ago
