The project was first announced as being in development as a feature film at 20th Century Fox, who entered negotiations to acquire the self-published e-book Wool by Hugh Howey on May 11, 2012. Five days later, it was confirmed that 20th Century Fox had acquired the rights to the novel, with Ridley Scott and Steven Zaillian among those attached to produce the film. On November 28, 2012, it was announced that J Blakeson was in negotiations to write and direct the film. It was later announced on June 5, 2015, that Nicole Perlman was hired to rewrite the screenplay, with Blakeson no longer involved in the project. The film was ultimately shelved as a result of the acquisition of 21st Century Fox by Disney.

On July 30, 2018, it was announced that a new iteration of the project was in development for television at AMC, with LaToya Morgan attached to write the adaptation under her overall deal at AMC Studios. The series eventually moved to Apple TV+ on May 20, 2021, with the project receiving a series order consisting of 10 episodes. Graham Yost was attached to replace Morgan as creator and writer, marking his third series at Apple TV+ under his overall deal with the network. Morten Tyldum was also attached to direct and executive produce the series, with Yost serving as showrunner.
