Who Is This For?

“Servant,” as a whole, is for people who like a claustrophobic show featuring a young woman whose obsession with a reporter who was nice to her goes to an extreme. Add in the young woman having powers and a cult being after her? At times you will get hyped about what can happen next.

With that said, the show peaks around season 2.

Highlights

There Was A Wonderful Build To Something Big

At the beginning of the season, it seemed like so much could be possible. Leanne was becoming more powerful, and the threat of the Church of Lesser Saints swooping in for a major battle seemed serious. Then, as it became questionable whether any Turners would remain on her side, an air of desperation pushed the idea that Leanne could become an apocalyptic figure. Yet, in the end, that didn’t happen.

Low Points

It Ultimately Didn’t Live Up To Expectations

The battle teased never comes. Yes, Leanne gets attacked, and it seems there were a few on their way to have a major fight with her. However, just as we could potentially get the payoff we’ve been waiting for after four seasons? Like many productions with M. Night Shyamalan’s name, the finale is a letdown.

What I Hope To See

The ending of “Servant” reveals that Julian is now a coerced member of the Church of the Lesser Saints due to Leanne reviving him. Honestly, I hope to see that be the definitive ending of the show than any attempt to continue the story.

Servant: Season 4 – Summary/ Review (with Spoilers)
Overall
The final season of "Servant" seemed like it would reward viewers who have long been waiting for something major to happen. A fight, for example, to match the season 2 battle against Aunt Josephine. Yet, in the end, "Servant" likely leaves viewers disappointed and without any reason to re-watch, get nostalgic, or even recommend the series.
