It’s been so lengthy since we’ve heard something about Apple TV+’s adaptation of Hugh Howey’s incredibly popular Silo series that I had forgotten it was nonetheless occurring. So it was a pleasant shock when this primary trailer for the present immediately appeared, and it’s much more pleasant that the post-apocalyptic mystery series seems nice.
Silo has a wonderful premise, which Apple TV has summed up fairly effectively: “Silo is the story of the final 10,000 individuals on earth, their mile-deep dwelling defending them from the poisonous and lethal world exterior. Nonetheless, nobody is aware of when or why the silo was constructed and any who attempt to discover out face deadly penalties. [Dune’s Rebecca] Ferguson stars as Juliette, an engineer, who seeks solutions a few cherished one’s homicide and tumbles onto a thriller that goes far deeper than she might have ever imagined…”
Right here’s the trailer:
There’s not a variety of darkish humor in Howey’s novels, so Silo might not precisely scratch the itch of individuals pining for extra Severance. However like that present, the trilogy collection—made up of Wool, Shift, and Mud—is equally glorious at world-building and doling out mysteries, which if executed proper ought to maintain viewers riveted. I’ve excessive hopes for Silo—not simply due to the supply materials, however as a result of Graham Yost is the showunner, and he made one in every of my favourite collection of all time, Justified.
Silo additionally stars Frequent, Harriet Walter, Chinaza Uche, Avi Nash, David Oyelowo, Rashida Jones, and Tim Robbins. The primary two episodes premiere on Could 5 on Apple TV+.
