Director M. Night Shyamalan on latest twists in season 2
At the Television Critics Association virtual winter press day, M. Night Shyamalan talked about the comic timings in episode 6 of season 2. “Comedy is something we’re all proud of. All four of these actors are so strong with physical [comedy]. I can come up with comedy that leans into that physicality. Like for episode 7, I pitched a Weekend at Bernie’s episode involving comatose Uncle George. It’s right on the line with broad comedy.”
He further spoke about his comfort area as a writer,
“From The Visit on, it’s just my sweet spot to explore being scared, uncomfortable, and laughing at the same time”
