Dylan actor Zach Cherry reveals the craziest fan theory he's heard so far about Apple TV+'s Severance, and it just so happens to be from his dad!
Severance actor Zach Cherry reveals the craziest fan theory he's heard yet about the hit Apple TV+ mystery show. Released earlier last year, Severance tells the story of a group of Lumon Industries employees whose memories have been surgically split between work and personal lives. Adam Scott stars as Mark Scout, manager of the Macrodata Refinement division, which includes Cherry's Dylan, John Turturro's Irving and Britt Lower's Helly, a group of employees who sort endless numbers. After receiving rave reviews following its release last year, Apple has renewed creator Dan Erickson's hit show for a second season.
Although Season 1 answered some questions, there are still many, which has led to some very crazy Severance fans theories about what the hell happened at Lumon Industries. In a recent interview with The AV Club, Cherry revealed that the craziest fan theory he's ever heard about the show actually came from his own father. When asked about the craziest theory Cherry has come across to date, check out Cherry's full review below:
“They all come from my dad who texts me after every episode. He’s pretty sure it’s aliens.”

Everything We Know About Severance Season 2
In addition to the core team of macro data refiners, Severance also stars Patricia Arquette, Christopher Walken, Tramell Tillman, Dichen Lachman, Jen Tullock and Michael Chernus, all are expected to return in season 2. In addition to the returning cast, it was announced late last year that the cast of Severance season 2 would be adding a number of other actors, including Gwendoline Christie, Alia Shawkat, Merritt Wever , Bob Balaban, Robby Benson, Stefano Carannante, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson and John Noble . Unfortunately, it's unclear who all these new actors will be playing and how they'll affect season 2's story.
When it comes to season 2's storyline, the "Severance Pay" season 1 finale ended with a major cliffhanger that was sure to build up. To be further explored. After activating something called the Overtime Contingency Protocol, which allows his outerwear to "wake up" outside of working hours, Mark begins to learn that the wife he thought was dead is actually alive and working at Lumen . It's not at all clear how Gemma (Lachman), aka Ms. Casey, is actually living her life, but Severance Pay season 2 will definitely see Mark relentlessly searching for answers. Of course, Mark is far from the only character to make a big revelation in the finale, with Hayley realizing she's actually the daughter Jame Eagan, CEO of Lumen Industries. This is sure to be explored more fully in season 2 as well.
While Mark, Hayley, Dylan, and Owen all made some pretty shocking discoveries in the Severance Pay season 1 finale, their plans were eventually discovered and cut short, meaning consequences, including possibly Tighter security measures in Season 2. Unfortunately, it's unclear when the new batch of episodes will release on Apple TV+, but Lower confirmed in October that filming for Severance season 2 is underway. Filming is likely still ongoing, and audiences could see Season 2 air later this year or early 2024. ^More: Is 'Severance Pay' Season 2 heading to the outside world? Helly Tease Explained
