Silo season two has begun filming at Hoddesdon Studios in Hertfordshire, UK. Rebecca Ferguson stars and executive produces.
The AMC-produced drama is based on Hugh Howey’s Wool trilogy of dystopian novels. Season one also filmed at Hoddesdon Studios from August 2021 and premiered last month on Apple TV+.
Silo is created by screenwriter Graham Yost, who also serves as showrunner and executive producer. Other exec-producers included the aforementioned Howey and Ferguson, along with director Morten Tyldum (who will direct the first three episodes of season 2), Nina Jack, Fred Golan, Rémi Aubuchon and Ingrid Escajeda.
The tv show takes place in a ruined and toxic future where a community exists in a giant underground silo that plunges hundreds of stories deep. There, people live in a society full of regulations they believe are meant to protect them.
Ferguson stars as engineer Juliette, with Common, Harriet Walter, Chinaza Uche, Avi Nash, David Oyelowo, Rashida Jones and Tim Robbins.
Gavin Bocquet was the production designer, credited with the design of the silo. The main set consists of three levels of stairs decorated to represent particular locations.
Season two will reportedly use the same set as season one.
Silo season one finale airs on Apple TV on June 30.
