Apple TV+ has given the critically acclaimed espionage series “Slow Horses,” starring Academy Award winner Gary Oldman, a two-season order, based on the next two novels in the CWA Gold Dagger Award-winning Mick Herron spy series “Slough House,” which will be adapted from the next two novels in the CWA Gold Dagger Award-winning Mick Herron spy series “Slough House.”
In season three of “Slow Horses,” Jackson Lamb’s disgraced spies work together to foil a rogue agent when one of their own is kidnapped. Season four opens with a bombing that detonates personal secrets, rocking the already unstable foundations of Slough House.
“Slow Horses” is a dark humorous spy series that follows a chaotic team of British intelligence agents who work in MI5’s dumping ground department, called Slough House sarcastically. Oldman plays Jackson Lamb, the bright but irascible head of the spies who land up in Slough House as a result of their career-ending mistakes while blundering about the espionage world’s smoke and mirrors.
Kristin Scott Thomas, Jack Lowden, Saskia Reeves, Rosalind Eleazar, Christopher Chung, Freddie Fox, Chris Reilly, Samuel West, Sophie Okonedo, Aimee-Ffion Edwards, Kadiff Kirwan, and Academy Award nominee Jonathan Pryce are among the ensemble members of the cast.
The series is produced for Apple TV+ by See-Saw Films and adapted for television by Will Smith (“Veep”). Executive showrunners include Jamie Laurenson, Hakan Kousetta, Iain Canning, Emile Sherman, Douglas Urbanski, Gail Mutrux, Will Smith, Jane Robertson, and Graham Yost. The third season will be directed by Saul Metzstein, while the fourth season’s director has yet to be announced.
The six-episode first season of “Slow Horses” was already aired globally on Apple TV+ on Friday, April 1, 2022, with the second season, directed by Jeremy Lovering, set to premiere globally later this year.
