It’s time for a melon party! Lumon doesn’t throw many parties, but I think they will make an exception. On Episode 412 of our podcast, I made my case to renew Severance for another season. Maybe it helped, because Apple has done just that.
Just ahead of the Season 1 finale on April 8th, news broke that the workplace thriller from creator Dan Erickson and executive producer/director Ben Stiller would be back for another season on Apple TV+. The team will learn some troubling revelations in the finale, so we might be in store for a bit of a cliffhanger. At least, knowing what we know now, there will be another season to address it, should that be the case.
“It’s really exciting to see the response from people who are loving the show — and the level of fan engagement,” said Stiller. “It has been a long road bringing ‘Severance’ to television. I first read Dan’s pilot over five years ago. It has always been a multi season story, and I’m really happy we get to continue it. I’m grateful to our partners at Apple TV+ who have been behind it the whole way. Praise Keir!”
“Thanks to creator Dan Erickson, the brilliant Ben Stiller, and an incomparable cast and crew, ‘Severance’ has imagined an existence that‘s equal parts riveting and enthralling as viewers around the globe can’t get enough of these rich characters,” said Matt Cherniss, head of programming for Apple TV+. “We’re excited to go deeper into this wholly unique world and unpack more layers of Lumon in season two.”
