Looks like the story of the last 10,000 people on Earth will continue, as Apple TV+ has ordered a season two for its sci-fi epic series Silo. Produced by AMC Studios and executive produced by Graham Yost, who helmed Justified and Boomtown to popular success, Silo has become the streaming platform’s historic Number 1 drama since it premiered on May 5, according to Nielsen and other reports.
Thus, it comes as little surprise that on June 14, Apple TV+ announced that it was hitting the renew button. Matt Cherniss, head of programming for Apple TV+, stated in a media release that “…viewership only continues to climb, and we are so excited for more secrets of the silo to be revealed in season two.”
Based on the original trilogy by novelist Hugh Howey, the epic arc of the Silo story is contained in the books Wool, Shift, and Dust. On the adapted TV series, Rebecca Ferguson stars as the hero Juliette Nichols, a troubled mechanic who rises to the role of sheriff and finds that the law and the mysteries of the silo are both dangerous and complex.
Alongside Ferguson is an accomplished cast including Common, David Oyelowo, Rashida Jones, and Tim Robbins. Ferguson and author Howey have maintained writing quality control by coming aboard as executive producers alongside Morten Tyldum, who directed the acclaimed The Imitation Game.
Of course, the cast and crew are all elated, with Ferguson sharing the good news in a post on her Instagram. Showrunner Yost added to the elation of a renewed season, saying that, “We cannot wait for audiences around the world to immerse themselves in the epic world we have created to bring Hugh Howey’s novels to life. 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 to our characters in the Silo.”
