It was high time for a new dystopia to hit our screens – and Silo on Apple TV+ hasn't disappointed.

The sci-fi, starring an incredible cast including Rebecca Ferguson and Tim Robbins, is based on the Wool trilogy by Hugh Howey and follows the inhabitants of an underground silo who have no idea why they're there or why they can't leave – only that it's imperative that they don't.

But when engineer Juliette (Ferguson) stumbles upon a mysterious death, she realises things aren't quite as they seem and vows to find out the truth.

When is episode 6 of Silo on Apple TV+ released?

Episode 6 of Silo is titled The Relic and is due to be released on Friday 2nd June.

The episode will see stakes for Juliette raised even higher in her quest to find out the truth about the silo.

Ferguson recently told of her preparation for the role: "I like finding the depths that are dark and the fact that she was so riddled with trauma and it was sedimented trauma.

"I studied trauma for the role and how expressive, or non-communicative, those people become because they’re so locked in their own grief. That, for me, was one of the biggest drives for her – how to maintain physical elements… of embodying trauma, like how does it show on your body?"

The first five episodes have dropped on Apple TV+ with fans clamouring for more. Read on for when all new episodes are due to be released.

How many episodes of Silo on Apple TV+ are there?

There are 10 episodes in the first season of Silo on Apple TV+.

A second season hasn't been confirmed just yet but it's worth noting that the series only covers the first book in Howey's trilogy, meaning there's plenty more story to tell.

Speaking to, Howey explained that, ideally, he'd love to see a total of four seasons to properly tell the full story.

"You have to rely on the reception, the quality of the product, the faith in the studio, that you get to tell the rest of the story," he said. "We left a lot out because we haven't got to tell the entire saga yet. There are so many stages to this."

He added: "My sense is that if we try to tell all three books, the whole trilogy, it would probably take four seasons, possibly. But there's a way to tell it in three and those conversations are just always ongoing."

Silo is available to stream on Apple TV+ now with new episodes dropping weekly on Fridays – you can sign up to Apple TV+ here. Hugh Howey's Wool Trilogy is available to buy now.
