Production has halted on a sci-fi series Stephen King is obsessed with. According to Collider, actress and producer Rebecca Ferguson confirmed that Silo is now on an indefinite hiatus.
This AppleTV+ hit earned a large following in its first season and was in the process of filming the second season. However, they’ve had to shut it down since the studios forced WGA and SAG to strike instead of paying creatives a living wage.
The show flew under most of our radars until Stephen King started using his platform to tell people how good it is.

SILO (Apple+): Mysterious and terrifically suspenseful. This is excellent science fiction with three-dimensional characters.

Sadly, studios have put so many creatives into this position. It’s a losing situation for everyone including fans, who have to wait and hope their favorites return when things are settled.
Silo is just one of many genre shows that cannot proceed with production, at the moment. Let’s take a closer look at this show that counts Stephen King among its rabid fanbase.
“In a ruined and toxic future, thousands live in a giant silo deep underground. After its sheriff breaks a cardinal rule and residents die mysteriously, engineer Juliette (Rebecca Ferguson) starts to uncover shocking secrets and the truth about the silo.”
Silo is based on a book series by Hugh Howey. It was adapted for TV by Graham Yost. The series stars Rebecca Ferguson, Tim Robbins, Common, Avi Nash, Harriet Walter, Iain Glen, Rashida Jones, and David Oyelowo.
You can watch the trailer for season one below and join the internet in speculating about what season 2 might bring.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the very reasonable requests put forward by the unions are met so that people can get back to work. In the meantime, you can monetarily support entertainers via Entertainment Community Fund.
