Silodystopian sci-fi series based on Hugh Howeyis the best seller Wool book trilogy, will return for a second season on Apple TV+.
Created by Emmy-nominated screenwriter Graham Yost (REASONABLY), who also serves as showrunner, Silo stars Rebecca Ferguson (Dune) as Juliette Nichols, an engineer who works on the generators deep in the underground silo, which is meant to protect its inhabitants from the outside world. The eighth episode will premiere on Friday, June 16.
“It was enormously fulfilling to see this immersive, atmospheric and beautifully crafted sci-fi epic Silo has quickly become Apple’s number one drama series,” said Matt Cherniss, head of programming for Apple TV+. “As audiences around the world have become engrossed in the mysteries and conspiracies buried within this fascinating underground world, viewership continues to grow and we’re so excited that more of the silo’s secrets will be revealed in season two.”
Silo revolves around the last 10,000 people on earth who live in their deep house that protects them from the toxic and deadly world outside. However, no one knows when or why exactly the silo was built, and those who try to find out why face fatal consequences. While searching for answers about the murder of a loved one, Juliette stumbles into a mystery that is much deeper than she could have ever imagined.
“We can’t wait for audiences around the world to immerse themselves in the epic world we’ve created to bring Hugh Howey’s novels to life,” said Yost. “Apple has believed in our vision since day one, and it’s an honor to have the opportunity to deepen this story and peel back the layers of our characters from Silo.”
In addition to Ferguson, the series stars Common (Chi), Harriet Walter (Series), Chinaza Uche (Dickinson), Avi Nash (zombies), David Oyelowo (Selma), Rashida Jones (Parks and places for rest), and Oscar winner Tim Robbins (mystical evil).
Yost is executive producing the series alongside Howey, Ferguson, Morten Tyldum (who also directed the first three episodes), Nina Jack, Fred Golan, Rémi Aubuchon and Ingrid Escajeda. It is produced by AMC Studios for Apple TV+.
