Silo is an adaptation of the science fiction novel Wool by Hugh Howey. The story is set in a post-apocalyptic world where human civilization is contained within a 144-story underground bunker. The citizens are forbidden from leaving the building on accounts of the outside world being uninhabitable. Questions arise about the intentions of the authority as well as the reality of their claims about the outside world. Overall, it’s a gripping story that plays quite well with the concepts of truth and freedom.
9 episodes of the series are available for streaming on Apple TV+ with the final episode scheduled for Friday. It stars Rebecca Ferguson (Dune), Rashida Jones, David Oyelowo, Common, Tim Robbins and Harriet Walter. The show has had quite an impact among the sci-fi fandom. Apple has already renewed the show for a second season.
