The new sci-fi/horror/drama/thriller series from Apple TV+ severance pay came at a perfect time as many Americans are reassessing their jobs and the crushing misery that any job inevitably leads to, as the series offered a chilling glimpse into a world where people are taking desperate measures to make their working lives more bearable… even if it’s at the expense of, you know Life. Now, ahead of the show’s season finale this Friday, Apple has announced it’s been renewed severance pay for another season of ominous shenanigans at work.
Apple shared the news in a press release, with director and executive producer Ben Stiller saying that he first read the pilot script, written by creator Dan Erickson, five years ago and that he always conceived the show as a “multi-year story.” (No word on exactly how many seasons, but it’s definitely a lively show and Apple will most likely want to keep it if it can keep up the excitement of season one once season two rolls around.)
severance pay Stars Adam Scott as Mark, a member of the intentionally meaningless-sounding macro data refinement team that worrying sterile offices of a company called Lumon Industries. Mark and his fellow MDR crew, played by John Turturro, Zach Cherry and Britt Lower, have all undergone the eponymous “severance process,” which sees them undergo surgery to have their personal and work life memories complete – um – separated, so they have no idea what they’re doing at home while they’re at work, and no idea what’s happening at work while they’re at home. A good deal on the one hand and a creepy horrible idea on the other!
Matt Cherniss, program director at Apple TV+, said in a separate statement that the streaming service is “excited to delve deeper into this entirely unique world and unpack more layers of Lumon in season two.”
