Apple TV+’s “Severance” will launch Feb. 18, 2022. Ben Stiller (“Tropic Thunder”) directs the nine-episode haunting series. New shows will follow each Friday. In “Severance,” Mark Scout (Adam Scott) leads a team at Lumon Industries, whose employees have undergone a surgical procedure, which divides their memories between their work and personal lives. The procedure is irreversible.
