Renewed: Slow Horses

Espionage series starring Gary Oldman, produced by Australian-UK See-Saw Films, gets two more seasons.

Espionage series Slow Horses, starring Gary Oldman, has been renewed for two more seasons by Apple TV+.

Produced by Australian-UK See-Saw Films, they will be adapted from two more novels in the Mick Herron spy series “Slough House.”

A second season is set to premiere globally later this year, directed by Jeremy Lovering.

Saul Metzstein is set to direct the third season, however the director for the fourth season has not yet been announced.

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 darkly humorous espionage drama that follows a dysfunctional team of British intelligence agents who serve in a dumping ground department of MI5 known un-affectionately as Slough House. Oldman stars as Jackson Lamb, the brilliant but irascible leader of the spies, who end up in Slough House due to their career-ending mistakes as they frequently find themselves blundering around the smoke and mirrors of the espionage world. The ensemble cast includes Academy Award nominee Kristin Scott Thomas, BAFTA Scotland Award winner 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.

The series is produced for Apple TV+ by See-Saw Films and adapted for television by Will Smith (“Veep”). Jamie Laurenson, Hakan Kousetta, Iain Canning, Emile Sherman, Douglas Urbanski, Gail Mutrux, Will Smith, Jane Robertson and Graham Yost serve as executive producers on the series.

  1. I believe that the second season of Slow Horses was made jointly with season one, it was just a matter of deciding on a release date. I liked this show and it does look to have promise.
