Season 1
Servant

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 (44) | 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…

Excellent production design. [Full review in Spanish]

Dec 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Like all creepy movies and TV shows, Servant uses its unlikely story to plumb real-life terrors. In this case, it's anxieties about what parenthood does to us, and particularly to women.

Dec 6, 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…

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…

Spooky series has great twists despite a pretty slow pace.

Dec 6, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

M. Night Shyamalan's disturbing new thriller Servant on Apple TV+ is much more than a haunting tale about a mysterious nanny and a grieving couple. Servant does an excellent job making the viewer paranoid throughout.

    loved the first episode. truly creepy and unsettling. but by the time of episode 4 the interest is lost. will stick with it but if answers or the pace doesn't increase by the end of the year I won't return for season 2

    A very promising show and Shyamalan delivers yet again. it's creepy, dark and sometimes disturbing with enough twists to keep the viewers on the edge of their seats. It's must-see tv for the fans of the genre.

    The whole premise has never been done before, and it's awesome. It leaves you wanting more at the end of each episode. I hear Shyamalan created this show to run for 6 seasons, and omfg I cannot wait to watch them all. Wish Netflix had scooped this little gem of a show up.

    Great premise, solid execution. The Shyama is back.
  • Dec 05, 2019
    Really enjoying the suspense! Optimistic for this series so far.
  • Dec 04, 2019
    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.
  • Dec 03, 2019
    Very eerie and intriguing. Love the slow burn suspense.
  • Dec 03, 2019
    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.
