Silo live stream: preview

Humanity has finally gone and messed up Earth for good in Silo, the new sci-fi drama on Apple TV+. Set in a toxic future, it centres on the last 10,000 humans alive, who reside in a silo deep underground. When the sheriff breaks a cardinal rule and residents start dying mysteriously, engineer Juliette (Rebecca Ferguson) starts discovering shocking secrets about their situation. As the tagline says: If the lies don't kill you, the truth will.

As well as Ferguson, it stars David Oyelowo (Selma), Rashida Jones (Parks and Recreation), rapper Common, and Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption). It's based on the Silo series of novels by author Hugh Howey. Ferguson also executive produces.

The show is an intriguing prospect, and one that seems chillingly current given the climate crisis. How will everyone react to being shut up in a silo hundreds of stories deep underground? Are the rules in place really there to protect everyone? And – the main question – what's the truth of their situation?

The first two episodes arrived on 5th May, with the remaining eight landing weekly on Fridays until 30th June. This week, it's episode 8, titled Hanna. A second series has already started filming.
