“Silo” renewed for a second season on Apple TV+

Apple TV+ is ready to continue building the world of Silo.

The streamer has renewed the sci-fi drama set in an underground community home to the last 10,000 people on Earth. Based on the trilogy of novels by Hugh Howey and created by Graham Yost (Justified and slow horses), Silo stars Rebecca Ferguson as an engineer in the deep silo who searches for answers to the murder of a loved one and stumbles upon a mystery that goes far deeper than she ever could have imagined. .

The renewal comes ahead of the series’ eighth episode, which premieres on June 16. The 10-episode first season is set to end on June 30.

“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,” Yost said in a statement. “Apple has believed in our vision from day one and it’s an honor to have the opportunity to dig deeper into this story and peel back the layers of our characters in the Silo.”

Matt Cherniss, Head of Programming for Apple TV+, added, “It’s been hugely rewarding to watch the gripping, atmospheric, and beautifully crafted sci-fi epic. Silo quickly becoming Apple’s #1 drama series. As audiences around the world have become captivated by the mysteries and conspiracies buried in this fascinating underworld, viewership numbers are only soaring, and we’re excited to see more secrets from the silo being revealed in season two.

Besides Ferguson, the cast of the series includes Common, Harriet Walter, Chinaza Uche, Avi Nash, David Oyelowo, Rashida Jones, and Tim Robbins.

AMC Studios is producing the series after originally developing it for sister network AMC. Yost, which has an overall deal with Apple, is producing with Howey, Ferguson, director Morten Tyldum (who helmed the first three episodes), Nina Jack, Fred Golan, RĂ©mi Aubuchon and Ingrid Escajeda.
