Severance director and producer Ben Stiller has reassured fans that all is well after rumours swirled of a delay for season two.

Previously, as reported by TV Line, rumours circulated that the show's second season was facing a delay after a reported but unconfirmed fallout between co-showrunners Dan Erickson and Mark Friedman.

Stiller tweeted to reassure fans, writing: "No one’s going to the break room. We’re on the same really slow schedule we’ve always been on. Same target air date we’ve always had. Love our fans and each other and we all are just working to make the show as good as possible."

Previously, (via TV Line) Puck News alleged that there was a "toxic" work environment around the show while the publication also claimed that there were script issues and budget issues. However, this is unconfirmed and representatives from Apple declined to comment on the situation.

Furthermore, TV Line reported that a source close to the show told them that the reports were inaccurate.

The source allegedly said that season 2 "is on schedule, the budget is the same as Season 1, Dan, Beau and Mark are all working together… [Beau] was hired for Season 3 and since they don’t have a traditional writers' room, it made sense he would get involved in the current season as well."

Stiller's latest comments, which were in reply to a page posting a link to comments disputing the report, also dampened talk of behind-the-scenes issues as he reassured fans all was normal with the show, which was well-received in its debut season.

Severance follows Adam Scott as Mark, who leads an office team whose memories have been surgically divided between work and personal lives. Season two is on its way while the first season ended on a dramatic note.

Severance is streaming now on Apple TV+.
