Seeing Stars? M. Night Shyamalan Thriller Filmed in Ocean City
The award-winning cast of actors for 'Servant' filmed scenes for season 3 in an NJ Shore town today. The psychological thriller had people around town talking! Here's what we can share.
M. Night Shyamalan is a big deal.
Raised in Penn Valley, Pennsylvania, Shyamalan has been behind some mega movies the past 25 years including "The Sixth Sense," "Unbreakable," and "Signs." His latest project is an Apple TV+ exclusive called "Servant." After two successful seasons, another is on its way. Apple TV+ touts," the acclaimed psychological thriller from Academy Award-nominated director M. Night Shyamalan, has been renewed for a third season ahead of its second season global premiere on January 15, 2021."
"Servant" filmed TODAY in Ocean City, New Jersey.
The show is incredible and I've posted the season 2 trailer below. With glowing reviews and a fantastic cast, "Servant" had people calling into our station, posting on Facebook, and other social media. Here's the intel:
- Earlier this month, a spokesperson on behalf of the production and Apple TV+ confirmed the show would be filming in Ocean City but was unable to share too much with us. It was corroborated by the New Jersey Motion Picture & Television Commission.
- "Servant" filmed key scenes for season 3 in Ocean City today (Saturday, March 6th, 2021). The show just unveiled season 2, so these newly filmed scenes for a future episode(s) are likely a year away.
- The particular storyline called for "a beach locale" and the filmmakers thought Ocean City would be a perfect fit.
- Listeners shared sightings and info with us today:
- Actors were first spotted on the 14th Street beach and Flanders on the boardwalk.
- The production filmed on the south end of the OC boardwalk, and the adjacent beach.
- Cast members including Lauren Ambrose, Toby Kebbell, and Rupert Grint were in the scenes.
- In all, today's filming was completed in about 3 hours.
- You may see a star or two around town tonight or this weekend. I can't be sure they're staying in town, but they may be. Please be kind and courteous.
- I've included pictures of the cast below. If you do see someone or have the chance to meet one, I'd love to hear about it. E-mail me and let me know who you met, where, and what was it like?. I'd love to share the info with our audience.
