New MGM+ Show With GoT Star Is a Perfect Silo Fix From Hugh Howey
Still got that Silo-shaped hole in your heart? Luckily, the series creator has more stories up his sleeve.
- Hugh Howey's Silo was adapted for screens by Apple TV and ended its first season on a cliffhanger, with the second chapter yet to come
- New MGM+ show Beacon 23 is also based on a story by Hugh Howey
- The new flick is set in 23rd century, revolving around a man who works at a remote lighthouse in space
Apple TV's Silo has had a lot of people hooked, and the fact that it ended the first season on a jaw-dropping cliffhanger didn't help. The show is based on a book series by Hugh Howey, and luckily for us, the author has even more engaging stories to offer. One of them happens to have also been adapted for silver screens — this time, by MGM+.
Enter Beacon 23 — a sci-fi flick with a strong Silo vibe, a space "lighthouse," and Game of Thrones ' Lena Headey herself as the main star.
What Is Beacon 23 About?
The series takes us to the Milky Way outskirts, where two strangers are stranded together on a celestial lighthouse. This lighthouse helps spaceships pass by, and it is operated by a soldier named Halan.
One day, his loneliness is disrupted by Aster — a government agent who crash-lands in the vicinity and claims to be very interested in some strange rocks that have been allegedly discovered nearby.
If trust issues were a shows, they would be this one: neither Halan nor Aster trust each other, and the overall mysterious vibe is very similar to that of Silo, where every episode left you with a sense of "something's going on here."
Where to Stream Beacon 23?
The show premiered on November 12, and you can watch it on MGM+ or in the MGM+ app. However, in case you don't have cable, but are an Amazon Prime subscriber, you can add it to your membership for $5.99 a month.
Besides, Beacon 23 is also available on Apple TV+.
