SERVANT Season 3 on Apple TV+ is more of the same. And I mean that in a good way, so for fans of the first two seasons, there is plenty more to return for. This time, we focus on Leanne Grayson in a new way. Read our full Servant Season 3 review here!

SERVANT on Apple TV+ returns with season 3 which begins three months after the events in season 2. That means you’ll know what the family has been through, but we also arrived back into their lives, just as they’re getting back on track.

Well, for the most part. Leanne is still suffering and becoming increasingly paranoid and downright terrified. Fortunately, we already know that there will be a season 4 (the final season), so it won’t be over with this third season. Once again, there are 10 episodes in the season and we’ve watched the first five for this review.

Continue reading our Servant Season 3 review below and check out episode 1 on Apple TV+ from January 21, 2022.

Paranoia and being sober

Initially, there is a huge focus on Leanne Grayson (Nell Tiger Free) who has become somewhat of a shut-in. Also, Julian (Rupert Grint) is now sober which has its own set of challenges.

After all, he is still caught up in some family drama that he doesn’t quite understand (or believe) while wanting to help and support his sister, Dorothy (Lauren Ambrose) all the way. If you enjoyed the first two seasons, you should be pleased with season 3 as well.

It’s drenched in that creepy and eerie feeling. One minute, you might think that Leanne has become way too paranoid. The next, you can’t help but recognize that she’s probably just the most aware person in the Turner household.

Servant: Season 3 – Apple TV+ Review

This cast blows my mind

As always, Sean Turner (Toby Kebbell) does his very best to support Leanne. He also tends to be the one who believes her the most. However, here in season 3, he is also (unknowingly) the one who seems to be inviting danger. Dorothy Turner (Lauren Ambrose) continues to try and support Leanne while also having her own aspirations to consider.

The casting of Servant continues to blow my mind. The core cast of Nell Tiger Free, Toby Kebbell, Lauren Ambrose, and Rupert Grint is absolutely brilliant. They feel perfectly connected to their characters in a way that allows for them to grow and change in a very organic way.

Sure, that might be the case for any good series. However, the storyline in season 3 of Servant (and all previous seasons for that matter) does come with some unique challenges. Often, dialogue isn’t as important as just watching the characters react. Having said that, the dialogue is also as brilliant as ever.

Watch Servant season 3 on Apple TV+ now!

The production quality on Apple TV+ series is always stellar and while Servant set a high bar from season 1, it’s still living up to this. Episode 1 in season 3 is even directed by producer M. Night Shyamalan and episode 2 by Ishana Shyamalan.

Remember, this series has always been marketed as a Shyamalan series, but really, he is “just” a producer and sometimes director. The creator is Tony Basgallop who continues to write on episodes here in season 3 as well. Ishana Shyamalan is also writing episodes of the series as of season 2.

If you’ve been following Servant on Apple TV+ then surely, you’ll return for season 3. If you haven’t been watching, then you might want to start now before the final season 4 of Servant comes out and all is revealed.

Season 3 of Servant premieres on Apple TV+ on January 21, 2022. As always, the episodes are released weekly.

Plot

Three months after we leave the Turner household in season two, things appear to be back to normal. Dorothy and Sean dote on Jericho, Julian has a new girlfriend and Leanne has moved back into the brownstone. With the threat of the cult looming and suspicious visitors staked out in a nearby park, Leanne does everything she can to feel secure, ultimately causing more chaos for the Turner family. As Sean starts trusting in Leanne’s power, Dorothy feels increasingly threatened and worries for Jericho’s safety. While the Turners struggle to keep their family whole, they must come to terms with the costs of Jericho’s return.

I write reviews and recaps on Heaven of Horror. And yes, it does happen that I find myself screaming, when watching a good horror movie. I love psychological horror, survival horror and kick-ass women. Also, I have a huge soft spot for a good horror-comedy. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment (even if the animals are just really good actors). Fortunately, horror doesn't use this nearly as much as comedy. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones. Go figure!
