Where You’ve Seen the Cast of Severance Before

Where You’ve Seen the Cast of Severance Before

In Apple TV+’s latest drama, Severance, employees at a corporation have had their lives surgically divided. When they come to work, they have no memory of their home lives, and when they go home, they can’t remember anything that happens at work. While this futuristic – and frightening – technology was designed to make the workplace the most productive possible environment since employees literally can’t think about anything else, there’s evidently a darker side to all of this that begins to emerge. Severance balances its inherent creepiness with unexpected humor in how its worker bees view their particular situation. The show features a terrific cast – here’s where you’ve seen them before.
