Critic Reviews for Servant Season 2

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (9)

It's right in my wheelhouse... The suspense and the thriller-ish elements had me locked in.

Apr 6, 2021 | Rating: A | Full Review…

Though "Servant" often reads like a comedy that thinks it's a thriller, there are still some genuinely chilling scenes... Though much of the enjoyment that "Servant" could deliver is hampered by how it chooses to tell its story.

Jan 20, 2021 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

While enough of the craft of the first season remains, the storytelling feels less confident in the seven episodes sent to press.

Jan 12, 2021 | Full Review…

Rupert Grint still impresses as Dorothy's wine-swilling, foul-mouthed brother, Julian (wash your mouth out, Ron Weasley!). And Ambrose releases the throttle fully for a performance of even more delicious derangement.

Jan 20, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Servant is everything that I want in a horror series. It features an award-worthy performance by Lauren Ambrose, gorgeous direction and a mythology that rivals Lost. Season 2 is somehow even better than the first.

Apr 2, 2021 | Rating: A | Full Review…

If the M Night Shyamalan canon could be classified as a class hierarchy, Servant would belong to the smug upper-middle class.

Feb 5, 2021 | Full Review…

Dorothy and Sean's Philadelphia brownstone is still a perfectly creepy and claustrophobic setting - even with the on-the-nose metaphor of foundation issues.

Feb 10, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

If you like your drama more transparent and explosive then Servant might prove a touch pedestrian. That being said, what these elegantly contrived half hour character dramas do offer is subtle complexity driven by story.

Jan 20, 2021 | Full Review…

If Servant wants to make itself worth viewers' times, it needs to present something that feels like a punch to the gut the way the first season's most effective moments did. Right now, it just feels like so much dead air.

Jan 20, 2021 | Full Review…

For all the moments of dark humor and all the newly surfacing questions that keep piling up, it's the suspenseful twists and turns that propel Season 2 of Servant most effectively.

Jan 20, 2021 | Full Review…

Both Lauren Ambrose as Dorothy and Tony Kebbell as Sean are consistently excellent, and as a bonus there's a superb black-comic turn from Rupert Grint as Dorothy's brother Julian.

Jan 19, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

At its best this is a wickedly playful gothic thriller that knows how to tease. What remains to be seen is if the payoff is worth the trouble.

Audience Reviews for Servant: Season 2

  • 4d ago
    Aside from Rupert Grint's awful acting (to be fair, just a really bad cast), the show is well shot, patiently told, and cleverly ambiguous in its constant tease of "is this supernatural or not?" Worth the watch.
  • Apr 26, 2021
    I enjoy the creepy & claustrophobic atmosphere. Very watchable.
  • Apr 16, 2021
    Awesome show waiting for season 3 excited!!!
  • Apr 12, 2021
    Season 2 picks up. Holy cow. The last 6 episodes were insane! Make it through season 1 if you can.
  • Apr 09, 2021
    The character development is really great. It allows one to greater understand each of the main characters. I felt that maybe this season was a little slow, but I'm not certain whether that makes it better or worse.
  • Apr 07, 2021
    Very Good Show the first season of the servant was much better than the second but ending is very good in season 2. Very impressed in Apple for the very high quality looking show.
  • Apr 05, 2021
    It's remarkable how little happens in this show. The dialogue gets quite tiresome by the second season. In a single episode, the character played by Boris McGiver demands: "What have you done?" as many as 20 times. I can't believe the producers of this show read the treatment and thought they could milk two seasons (or is it three?) out of a story that might have made a boring 90 minute film. Two stars because Boris McGiver is in this and he's great.
  • Apr 04, 2021
    Really enjoyed the first season where as the second seems less tight, unfocused and a bit of a mess. Neither was it scary or enjoyable and I began to feel less like I was in good hands but just falling and looking for the remote.
  • Mar 28, 2021
    What a joke of a series! While season 1 has some legitimate suspense, nothing happens in season 2 other than having Leanne locked up in the attic. The characters become caricatures of themselves, especially crazy Dorothy. If you're looking for any of the suspense and brilliance of The Sixth Sense, it seems that genius was lost long ago. Silly and a waste of time.

    M. Night crushes it. Beautiful cinematography. Dorothy is super cringe - but Weasley holds everything together. Interested to see what's in store for season 3
