Servant: Season 1 (2019)


Season 1

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 (59) | Top Critics (20)

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

Nov 20, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

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

Nov 27, 2019 | Full Review…

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

Dec 2, 2019 | Full Review…

Toby Kebbell really shines throughout this entire show.

Mar 19, 2020 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Servant sings because of its performances.

Nov 4, 2020 | Full Review…

The whole series does really well to portray a family's heartbreak while keeping you on your toes.

Oct 13, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Patience is something that is needed by an audience that watches Servant, but if they hang in there they will be rewarded by great performances and a suspenseful and unexpectedly funny script that will leave the audience wanting more.

Sep 4, 2020 | Full Review…

It eventually turns into an exercise in narrative withholding that is more head-scratching than hair-raising.

Jul 23, 2020 | Full Review…

SERVANT, like any well thought out mystery, has laid out a trail of breadcrumbs for you to follow.

Jun 22, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

AppleTV+'s best-kept secret is a disturbing study in grief, guilt, and denial.

May 12, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

A triumph for Shyamalan and Apple+. Servant goes far in its premise while guaranteeing the effectivity of the format for well shot short episodes. [Full review in Spanish].

Apr 13, 2020 | Full Review…

The slow pace of Servant's blooming mystery will feel just right for a certain kind of viewer, especially with the artful execution. But you've got to ask yourself going in if you really want to invest in a question mark.

    UGH, Another m night shyamalan flop. Just like his movies you can tell there is never going tobe an ending to this series. The first couple episodes were good and halfway through season one you could tell it was going nowhere. The servant is exactly where it belongs on Apple TV were the worst TV shows air. How is Apple TV even a channel who subscribes to the stuff if I hadn't received a free subscription from Apple no way would I pay for it, the shows are terrible

    Very mediocre and less than half-baked. I got tired trying to stay glued to the series as it just kept dragging on and on with too many plots and characters bring brought into the show who lacked depth! Mr Shyamalan you need to STOP making supernatural movies/shows. You can never get it right and instead you just make the viewing boring by teasing promising plots only to not go through with them till the end The Visit was so half-baked, and Servant is worse than that.

    This an ok-ish thriller show, nothing horrific except for people born after 2000. Season 2 just started and if you wonder what happened in the serie until now, not that much actually. Pretty slow paced show, whiny role of Lauren Ambrose is the most annoying character... Seriously how many shows we have to watch with some super emotives people nowadays?! Also dunno why there are so many shots about slow cooking in the dark actually, prolly must be a vegan thing ("oh my god he just slowly cut a piece of meat, can't watch it. it's soooo hard" or something)

    I liked it. Its different. The story is interesting. Every episode is wanting you to know what happens next. Its a great show to watch. I think this show would get a 5 star but theres something that is missing. Its a show that didnt leave me "wow that a great show".

    Simply brilliant. A true thrilling story. Highly recommendable!

    Dark, moody, and mind-boggling. Every time we thought we had figured it out, we sadly hadn't. Happy to hear there will be a season 2!

    Great tv series. Format of 30ish minutes is very convenient. Plot is interesting and unique. Alina

    A classic horror plot, inviting strangers into your house and see what happens next. This is a neighbor friendly production, with filming takes place mostly inside the house. This show brings horror cinematography into the next level, just watch the BTS video to witness its magic. Despite only four main actors, they all are brilliant | Follow us at

    I have to admit I found it okay for first two episodes, but then I was ironing and I thought I'd hang in there. It did get better - but guys what was that about the floor in the basement having a mini earth quake? Maybe I lost the plot! It got better again and I was beginning to really enjoy it. But, the ending how shit was that? Ooops sorry.

    The show is an absolute delight to watch. It keeps you curious.
