The spy-thriller television series Slow Horses is based on Mick Herron’s 2010 book of the same name. The first season of the show debuted on Apple TV+ on April 1, 2022, and the second season followed later that year. It was given a third and fourth series renewal in June 2022.
In Slough House, an espionage unit where MI5 dumps anyone they deem unfit, Slow Horses tracks its personnel. Jackson Lamb (Oldman), the cranky and helpless boss of the Slough House, is aware that the operatives that wind up there are receiving punishment and are not intended to perform any actual spying.
What is the Storyline for Slow Horses Season 2?
The spy novels in Mick Herron’s Slough House series, which center on a gang of disgraced MI5 agents who work together in an improbable way to save the day, are the inspiration for the film Slow Horses. The first season was based on the book Slow Horses (opens in new tab).
So it makes it natural that the second season of Slow Horses will be based on the second novel in the Herron trilogy, Dead Lions (opens in new tab). The following is Apple TV’s official season summary:
“In season two, long-forgotten Cold War secrets come to light and threaten to wreak havoc on London’s streets. Our helpless heroes must rise above their own flaws and up their spy game in a race to avert a catastrophic tragedy when a connection with Russian baddies takes a tragic turn.”
Cast of Slow Horses season 2
The majority of the cast from Season 1 of Slow Horses is back for Season 2, including Gary Oldman as Jackson Lamb, the head of Slough House. Lamb was initially Slough House’s who-gives-a-crap leader, but we learned throughout season 1 that he is still a skilled spy. In season 2, he appears more eager to rejoin the fray, but his signature insults are still available.
Oldman has been performing since the 1980s, and although he still has Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer coming up, the Academy Award winner recently stated that he is thinking about retiring when Slow Horses runs its course (whenever that may be).
The other Slow Horses are also present, including Dustin Demri-Burns as Min Harper, Christopher Chung as Roddy Ho, Saskia Reeves as Catherine Standish, Rosalind Eleazar as Louisa Guy, and Jack Lowden as River Cartwright.
Kristin Scott Thomas as Diana Taverner, Jonathan Pryce as David Cartwright, Freddie Fox as Spider Webb, and Chris Reilly as Nick Duffy are among the other season one character who will return. Samuel West (All Creatures Great and Small), Aimee-Ffion Edwards (Peaky Blinders), and Kadiff Kirwan are a few of the new cast members (This Is Going to Hurt).
Rade Serbedzija (The Blacklist, Taken 2) is rumored to be cast as the season’s antagonist, though Apple TV has not confirmed this.

Trailer of Slow Horses Season 2
The second season of Slow Horses has an official trailer that emphasizes the intrigue surrounding the potential reactivation and attack plan of Russian sleeper operatives that is at the heart of this new season. As previously reported, Slow Horses season 1 ended with a teaser for season 2, which you can see right here:
Some noteworthy points include the fact that there will be some daylight scenes after season 1 was virtually exclusively filmed in one night. Additionally, Moscow rules were a topic that Lamb and Cartwright frequently discussed in the first season. It appears that they will be competing against someone who only adheres to those regulations.
How to Watch Slow Horses?
The whole first season of Slow Horses is currently only accessible via Apple TV Plus. Only Apple TV Plus subscribers will be able to access Season 2. This implies that you must pay up for Apple TV Plus in order to watch Slow Horses.
In addition to many other international markets, the US and UK offer Apple TV Plus. It has a monthly subscription price, but every new subscriber is eligible for a seven-day free trial and anyone purchasing a new Apple product is eligible for a three-month free trial.
Can We Expect More Slow Horses?
The spy drama Slow Horses has been officially renewed by Apple TV Plus for a third and fourth season before season 2 of the show even premieres on the streaming service. In addition, they provided us with the plot summaries for seasons 3 and 4.
When one of their own is abducted in Season 3, the discredited spies band together to stop a rogue agent. This appears to come after Real Tigers, the third installment in Mick Herron’s Slough House series (opens in new tab).
Based on the fourth book in the series, Spook Street, Season 4 opens with a bombing that explodes personal secrets and shakes the Slough House’s already shaky foundations (opens in new tab).
