Behind the Scenes Look at Apple TV+ Show 'Servant' Explores How Food is Used to Convey Emotion

"Servant," an Apple TV+ thriller produced and directed by M. Night Shyamalan, uses food to evoke a visceral reaction from viewers.

In a new video shared on Apple's ‌Apple TV‌ YouTube channel, Shyamalan and show creator Tony Basgallop talk about the importance of food in the show and how food conveys emotion.


"Servant" uses a professional chef on the set to prepare food for each scene where food is employed. Toby Kebbell, who plays Sean in the series, is also involved in the cooking.

"Servant" just wrapped up its first season, which consisted of 10 episodes. The show has been renewed for a second season, and the second season will presumably premiere late in 2020.

I'll admit that Servant is a bit slow, not a lot happened in Season 1, but the focus on the food creation process, the cinematographic love-letter to that old Philadelphia mansion and that orgasm-worthy wine cellar (as well as the coke-addled Julian played brilliantly by Rupert Grint) has made it one of my favourite new shows. Assuming things pick up where they left off, season 2 should be a great ride!

The food they served the guests in the season finale had a special ingredient that looked very appetizing.


Its a family recipe

Vastly underrated show, started it yesterday. Slow pace, but so far very well done.
