Apple has picked up the creepy workplace drama series ‘Severance’ ahead of its season one finale, as reported by Variety.
Severance stars Adam Scott as Mark S., a widower who has agreed to forget the day-to-day work side of his life by way of a “severance” procedure. This divides his memories providing a literal separation of his work/life balance. Though once Mark stumbles across a co-worker from his office outside of work, the true mystery of their jobs begins to unravel.
The series was been gaining a lot of notoriety for the way it tackles capitalism and its various other themes. Its novel concept interweaves sci-fi, drama, horror and a bit of thriller in unexpected ways.
“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.”
Alongside Scott, Severance stars Zach Cherry, Britt Lower, Tramell Tillman, John Turturro, and Dichen Lachman. The series was created by Dan Erickson. Ben Stiller and Aoife McArdle both served as directors on a number of episodes.
Severance first began airing on Apple TV+ on February 18. The renewal comes as the show’s first season finale arrives tomorrow, April 8. Dubbed ‘The We We Are,’ new revelations for our group of characters will likely come to light.
Apple TV+ is available in Canada for $5.99/month.
