Severance synopsis

Severance journeys the like of a man named Mark S. who willingly undergoes a procedure to have the work version of himself separated from the home version of himself. This procedure aims to improve the lives of office workers and possibly prevent burnout, results that should improve participants’ quality of life—or so everyone, especially Mark, thought.

When the lines of what’s known and what’s hidden beneath memories blur, Mark is faced with the unnerving knowledge that his entire life, both personal and professional, may all be a lie.

What’s the truth and who’s telling it? You’ll have to tune in to find out, but until then, read on to learn who you can expect to see in this series.

From Big Little Lies actor Adam Scott who stars as Mark in the series to Succession‘s Zach Cherry who plays the role of Dylan, the cast of Severance features:

  • Britt Lower as Helly
  • Tramell Tillman as Milchick
  • Jen Tullock as Devon
  • Dichen Lachman as Ms. Casey
