‘Silo’ Teaser: Rebecca Ferguson Leads Apple’s Post-Apocalyptic Series Arriving This May

Hope you’ve not had your fill of post-apocalyptic dramas on your TV screen, because with HBO’s The Last of Us killing it right now there are going to be a lot more. Apple gets back into the game with Silo, and this promises to be worth our attention because it stars Mission: Impossible scene-stealer Rebecca Ferguson.

The series takes place in the future, where the remains of humanity live in a massive underground silo of unknown origin. All the people know is that leaving the silo means death, but of course, there’s a lot more to the story that they are unaware.

Ferguson leads an impressive ensemble that looks like it belongs in a feature film. She’s joined by Common, Harriet Walter, Chinaza Uche, Avi Nash, David Oyelowo, Rashida Jones, and Tim Robbins.

Speaking of features, the first three episodes were directed by Morten Tyldum, known for helming The Imitation Game. But the series creator and showrunner is Graham Yost, known for his work on Justified, Boomtown, and Speed. Yes, THAT Speed.

Silo debuts on AppleTV+ on May 5th.

Silo is the story of the last ten thousand people on earth, their mile-deep home protecting them from the toxic and deadly world outside. However, no one knows when or why the silo was built and any who try to find out face fatal consequences. Ferguson stars as Juliette, an engineer, who seeks answers about a loved one’s murder and tumbles onto a mystery that goes far deeper than she could have ever imagined, leading her to discover that if the lies don’t kill you, the truth will.
