MAYOR JAHNS and DEPUTY MARNES, played by Geraldine James and Will Patton
Mayor Jahns is the genial leader of Silo society, though the division known as Judicial does what it can to keep her in check. Jahns’ many duties include overseeing the forced exodus of any resident who voices their wish to “go outside.” In the early episodes, the Mayor makes a choice that is deemed quite controversial by Judicial, setting in motion a power struggle.
Deputy Marnes dutifully serves Sheriff Holston — and in the series’ jarring cold open, which is bit of a flash-forward, Marnes can only look on, helpless, as Holston inexplicably does the unthinkable.
Impressive cast and production — I’m looking forward to it. (Although it needs to be said, we’ve been let down by cool-sounding sci-fi mystery shows many times before….)
This is must-see on my watchlist. I love a good sci-fi mystery and that casting is indeed impressive. That being said, I am curious as to what happened to Season 2 of Apple’s Invasion. It was renewed back in 2021, so I am guessing we should be able to see it sometime soon’ish? Maybe?
Where is Asian representation?!
The books this is based on,and it’s more than a “trilogy” are amazing and it will probably be just as amazing to see it like this.
Great cast. I love Rebecca Ferguson. My only worry is that a setting like this could become very dreary and monotonous. Seems very much in keeping with a lot current science fiction series, from Snowpiercer to The Expanse and so on. Looking forward to see how it distinguished itself from the crowd (or doesn’t, as the case may be.).
