Severance is written and created by Dan Erickson and executive produced by Erickson and Ben Stiller. The series centers on the biotech company Lumon Industries, whose employees undergo "severance," a medical procedure to divide their memories of their work and personal lives.

Zach Cherry, Britt Lower, Tramell Tillman, Jen Tullock, Dichen Lachman, Michael Chernus, John Turturro, Christopher Walken and Patricia Arquette also star.

"It's really exciting to see the response from people who are loving the show -- and the level of fan engagement," Stiller said in a statement. "It has been a long road bringing Severance to television. I first read Dan's pilot over five years ago. It has always been a multi season story, and I'm really happy we get to continue it."

"We're excited to go deeper into this wholly unique world and unpack more layers of Lumon in Season 2," Apple TV+ head of programming Matt Cherniss added.

News of the renewal comes ahead of the Season 1 finale, which will air Friday. The episode is titled "The We We Are."
