The season finale of Silo, Apple TV’s sleeper hit starring Rebecca Ferguson, Common, David Oyelowo, Rashida Jones and Tim Robbins, drops Friday (June 30).
On the show, the last 10,000 people on earth live in a giant silo located a mile underground to protect them from the “toxic and deadly world outside.” No one knows how or when the silo was built and what awaits them outside, but they’re not allowed to question how they got there or attempt to break free — without consequence.
Ferguson stars as Juliette, an engineer who stumbles upon secrets about the silo while searching for answers surrounding the death of a family member.
Silo was adapted from Hugh Howey’s bestselling novels, Wool, Shift and Dusty. The dystopian series was created by Emmy-nominated screenwriter Graham Yost, who serves as showrunner and executive producer.
Howey, Ferguson and Morten Tyldum are executive producers as well, along with Nina Jack, Fred Golan, Rémi Aubuchon and Ingrid Escajeda. Tyldum directed the show’s first three episodes.

Will There Be a Silo Season 2?
Is Silo returning for season 2? After gaining a cult following since its premiere on May 5, the series has officially been renewed for a second season, Apple announced on June 14.
“It has been enormously fulfilling to see the engrossing, atmospheric and beautifully crafted sci-fi epic Silo quickly become Apple’s number one drama series,” said Matt Cherniss, head of programming for Apple TV+. “As audiences around the world have become gripped by the mysteries and conspiracies buried within this fascinating subterranean world, viewership only continues to climb, and we are so excited for more secrets of the silo to be revealed in season 2.”
“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,” added Yost. “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.”
Though it’s unclear when season 2 will premiere and how the writer’s strike and a potential SAG-AFTRA strike could impact scheduling, the show recently started shooting its second season, Ferguson revealed in an interview with Collider.
