Haven’t seen Silo yet? Now may be the perfect time to tune in, as Apple has begun streaming the first episode of the critically acclaimed series through its Apple TV Twitter account, giving viewers a free look at the show inspired by Hugh Howey’s collection of dystopian novels. Silo, which stars Rebecca Ferguson, follows a group of people in the future who are stuck in what could very well be a Fallout quest, trapped in an underground silo that comprises 144 levels, and while the show hasn’t provided too many answers yet on what is really going on (e.g., what’s behind that door?), the season finale, set to premiere this Friday, is expected to solve at least one major mystery. Apple announced earlier this month that Silo has been renewed for a second season.
“It has been enormously fulfilling to see the engrossing, atmospheric and beautifully crafted sci-fi epic ‘Silo’ quickly become Apple’s number one drama series,” said Matt Cherniss, head of programming for Apple TV+. “As audiences around the world have become gripped by the mysteries and conspiracies buried within this fascinating subterranean world, viewership only continues to climb, and we are so excited for more secrets of the silo to be revealed in season two.”
From an Apple TV+ press release:
“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.
The ensemble cast starring alongside Ferguson includes Common (“The Chi”), Emmy nominee Harriet Walter (“Succession”), Chinaza Uche (“Dickinson”), Avi Nash (“The Walking Dead”), Critics Choice Award and NAACP winner David Oyelowo (“Selma”), Emmy nominee Rashida Jones (“Parks and Recreation”) and Academy Award winner Tim Robbins (“Mystic River”).
