The first season of HBO’s The Last of Us is set to end this month, but more post-apocalyptic TV is on its way courtesy of Apple and its premium streaming service. Apple TV+ today shared its first teaser trailer for Silo, a new 10-episode series based on Hugh Howey’s sci-fi novels that centers around a group of people who live in a subterranean city 144 stories beneath the surface of a post-apocalyptic Earth—an idea that, while not revolutionary, might entice fans of Fallout (read: Vaults) and other properties to give it a look. Starring Rebecca Ferguson (Dune), Silo will premiere on Friday, May 5, 2023, with two episodes, followed by one new episode weekly every Friday through June 30, 2023 on Apple TV+.

From an Apple TV+ press release:

Apple’s “Silo” (FKA “Wool”), the new 10-episode drama series based on Hugh Howey’s New York Times bestselling trilogy of dystopian novels, is set to make its global premiere on Friday, May 5, 2023 on Apple TV+. Debuting a first-look teaser and photos from the series today, “Silo” is created by Emmy-nominated screenwriter Graham Yost (“Band of Brothers,” “Justified”), who also serves as showrunner. Academy Award nominee Morten Tyldum (“Defending Jacob,” “The Imitation Game”) directs the first three episodes and the world-building drama stars an ensemble cast led by Rebecca Ferguson (“Dune,” “Mission: Impossible” films), who will also serve as executive producer. “Silo” will premiere with the first two episodes, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday through June 30, 2023 on Apple TV+.

“Silo” is the story of the last ten thousand people on earth, their mile-deep home protecting them from the toxic and deadly world outside. However, no one knows when or why the silo was built and any who try to find out face fatal consequences. Ferguson stars as Juliette, an engineer, who seeks answers about a loved one’s murder and tumbles onto a mystery that goes far deeper than she could have ever imagined, leading her to discover that if the lies don’t kill you, the truth will.
