Before you journey into the titular Silo of Apple TV+’s upcoming dystopian drama, it couldn’t hurt to get a quick, non-spoilery heads-up on who is who within that stark, subterranean society.

Based on Hugh Howey’s bestselling trilogy of novels (shop Amazon) and created for television by Justified‘s Graham Yost, Silo follows the last 10,000 people on Earth as they navigate life in a mile-deep, underground home that protects them from the toxic outside world.

The catch? No one knows when or why the silo was built, and anyone who goes snooping for answers faces fatal consequences.

As a recurring mantra that is read from a text known as The Pact goes:

We do not know why we are here.
We do not know who built the Silo.
We do not know why everything else outside the Silo is as it is.
We do not know when it will be safe to go outside.
We only know that day is not today.

Rebecca Ferguson (of the Mission: Impossible and Dune franchises) stars as Juliette, an engineer who seeks answers about a murder and subsequently stumbles onto a mystery that goes far deeper than she could have ever imagined.

The ensemble cast also boasts Academy Award winner Tim Robbins (Castle Rock), Rashida Jones (Parks and Recreation), Emmy nominee David Oyelowo (Nightingale), Common (Hell on Wheels), Harriet Walter (Succession), Chinaza Uche (Dickinson), Will Patton (Outer Range), Geraldine James (Anne With an E), Iain Glen (Titans) and Avi Nash (The Walking Dead). 

Here now is TVLine’s character guide for Silo (which premieres Friday, May 5 with the first two episodes of 10), followed by the full trailer:
