If you need another recommendation for the fantastic Apple TV+ series Silo, then look no further than the star of the show herself. Rebecca Ferguson recently talked about the show at Deadline’s Contenders TV panel and perfectly summed it up as, “thought-provoking, philosophical, psychological.” She continued, “We had one day where we weren’t really figuring out a scene … and we just stopped the shooting for 15 minutes … and we just talked it through, because we’re not rushing anything,” adding, “This is the essence of this show.”


If Rebbeca Ferguson’s recommendation for Silo isn’t enough to get you to check it out, then probably nothing will. Her assessment of what makes the show great is spot on, and for those who like their dystopian dramas to be well thought out and engrossing, then this is the show for you. Created by Graham Yost, the series is based on the novel trilogy of the same name by Hugh Howey that includes the books, Wool, Shift, and Dust.

The Cast

Rebecca Ferguson stars in Silo as Juliette, an engineer who lives in a dystopian future with the last 10,000 people on Earth living in a mile-deep underground silo. But, when she begins to investigate the murder of a loved one, she comes across a discovery that could change everything. Along with Ferguson, the series also stars Rashida Jones, David Oyelowo, Common, Tim Robbins, Harriet Walter, Avi Nash, Rick Gomez, and Chinaza Uche.
