Ahead of its first season finale, Apple TV+ has announced that critically-acclaimed drama "Silo" will now return for a second run.

The post-apocalyptic drama has been highly praised by critics, and viewers including Stephen King.

"It has been enormously fulfilling to see the engrossing, atmospheric and beautifully crafted sci-fi epic 'Silo' quickly become Apple's number one drama series," said Matt Cherniss, head of programming for Apple TV+. "As audiences around the world have become gripped by the mysteries and conspiracies buried within this fascinating subterranean world, viewership only continues to climb, and we are so excited for more secrets of the silo to be revealed in season two."

"Silo," based on Hugh Howey's novels, was created for television by "Justified" creator Graham Yost.

"We cannot wait for audiences around the world to immerse themselves in the epic world we have created to bring Hugh Howey's novels to life," Yost said of the second season renewal. "Apple has believed in our vision from day one and it's an honor to have the opportunity to dig deeper into this story and peel back the layers to our characters in the silo."

Rebecca Ferguson stars in "Silo," and executive produces alongside Yost and Howey, as an engineer trying to learn who built the mile-deep structure everyone lives in.

The first season of "Silo" is streaming with new episodes each Friday until June 30, 2023.
