Apple TV+ has revealed the first teaser trailer and premiere date for its upcoming sci-fi series, Silo, formerly known as Wool. The 10-episode sci-fi drama will release on Friday, May 5, 2023, with the first two episodes, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday through June 30, 2023, on Apple TV+.
Apple’s “Silo” is based on Hugh Howey’s New York Times bestselling trilogy of dystopian novels. Debuting a first-look teaser and photos from the series today, “Silo” is created by Emmy-nominated screenwriter Graham Yost, who also serves as showrunner. Academy Award nominee Morten Tyldum directs the first three episodes and the world-building drama stars an ensemble cast led by Rebecca Ferguson, who also serves as executive producer.
"Silo" is the story of the last ten thousand people on Earth, who live in a mile-deep tunnel to protect themselves from the toxic and deadly world outside. However, no one knows when or why the silo was built, and anyone who tries to find out risks being killed. Ferguson plays Juliette, an engineer who seeks answers about the murder of a loved one and stumbles upon a mystery that is far deeper than she could have ever imagined, leading her to discover that if lies don't kill you, the truth will.
Leading the series is Rebecca Ferguson, who is playing 'Juliette,' a self-sufficient and hardworking engineer. Tim Robbins is playing Bernard, the head of IT for the Silo. David Oyelowo is playing Holston, the silo’s sheriff. Rashida Jones plays Allison, Holston’s wife, who works in IT. Common is portraying Sims, the silo’s head of judicial security. The series also stars Harriet Walter as Martha Walker, Chinaza Uche as Paul Billings, and Avi Nash as Lukas Kyle.
“Silo” is written by Graham Yost (“Band of Brothers,” “Justified”) and directed by Morten Tyldum (“Defending Jacob,” “The Imitation Game”). The series is executive produced by Ferguson, Yost, and Tyldum, alongside Silo series author Hugh Howey. Remi Aubuchon, Nina Jack, and Ingrid Escajeda also served as executive producers on the sci-fi drama, produced by AMC Studios. Graham Yost is also the showrunner of the series.
Written by Hugh Howey, Silo is a series of post-apocalyptic science fiction books started in 2011 with the short story "Wool", which was later published together with four sequel novellas as a novel with the same name. Along with Wool, the series consists of Shift, Dust, three short stories, and Wool: The Graphic Novel.
