Ahead of its Season 2 premiere, Apple TV+ has ordered two more seasons of the acclaimed spy drama Slow Horses starring Oscar winner Gary Oldman. Seasons 3 and 4 will be adapted from the next two novels in the Mick Herron spy series Slough House.
In Season 3, Jackson Lamb’s (Oldman) 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.

The six-episode first season of Slow Horses launched globally on Apple TV+ on April 1. The second season, directed by Jeremy Lovering, is set to premiere globally later this year.
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.
