Silo teaser trailer: Rebecca Ferguson stars in sci-fi mystery series

Apple TV+ has released a teaser trailer for the upcoming sci-fi series Silo, starring Rebecca Ferguson and based on the stories by Hugh Howey

Author Hugh Howey began his Silo series of post-apocalyptic science fiction stories in 2011, and attempts to bring those stories to the screen have been coming and going since 2012. Ridley Scott and Steve Zaillian were going to produce a film adaptation for 20th Century Fox. LaToya Morgan was developing a Silo series for AMC. But a decade down the line, it’s Apple TV+ that has successfully managed to get a Silo series into production. The first two episodes of the series will premiere on May 5th, with the remaining episodes to be released on a weekly basis every Friday. A teaser trailer for Silo has now arrived online, and you can check it out in the embed above.

According to TV Line, Silo follows the last 10,000 people on Earth as they navigate life in their mile-deep underground home protecting them from the toxic outside world. The catch? No one knows when or why the silo was built and anyone who goes snooping for answers faces fatal consequences.

The series has an impressive cast that includes Rebecca Ferguson (Doctor Sleep), Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption), David Oyelowo (Selma), Common (John Wick: Chapter 2), and Rashida Jones (Parks and Recreation).

Howey’s Silo series started with a short story called Wool, and at one point the plan was to call the Apple TV+ series Wool as well. If the show does well, there’s plenty of Howey stories to continue pulling story from: Holston, Proper Gauge, Casting Off, The Stranded, Legacy, Order, Pact, and Dust... and more to come.

Writer Graham Yost (Speed) is the behind the Apple TV+ Silo series and serves as an executive producer on it alongside Ferguson, Howey, Remi Aubuchon, Fred Golan, Nina Jack, Ingrid Escajeda, and director Morten Tyldum.

What did you think of the Silo teaser trailer? Are you familiar with Howey’s series, and will you be watching this show when it reaches Apple TV+? Share your thoughts on this one by leaving a comment below. I haven’t read any of Hugh Howey’s Silo stories (or, honestly, anything by Howey at all), but this show looks interesting to me. I might have to check it out.
