The workplace thriller, Severance will be coming back for a second season on Apple TV+. The announcement was made by several members of the cast and crew of the series.
Severance is a sci-fi thriller series that follows an employee of Lumon Industries who agrees to a “severance” program in which his non-work memories are separated from his work memories. Adam Scott plays the lead character, ‘Mark Scout’.
Other cast members include Patricia Arquette, John Turturro, Britt Lower, Zach Cherry, Dichen Lachman, Jen Tullock, Tramell Tillman, Michael Chernus and Christopher Walken.
The series comes from creator and writer Dan Erickson and director and executive producer Ben Stiller. Aoife McArdle has also directed a few episodes.
Stiller first read the screenplay for the pilot episode at least five years before the show premiered. The script was submitted by Dan Erickson as a writing sample to Stiller’s production company Red Hour Productions and passed to Stiller by development executive Jackie Cohn.
The season 1 finale of ‘Severance’ will premiere on Apple TV+ on April 8.
