The Slow Horses season 2 teaser, which teases a quicker return to Slough House than many fans probably expected, was a welcome surprise for those who watched the whole first season of the show on Apple TV Plus. We’ve got you covered on all you need to know about the upcoming new season of the Apple TV Plus original series.
According to Rotten Tomatoes, Slow Horses season 1 garnered high marks from both critics and viewers, scoring 94% from the former and 87% from the latter. The programme is one of a recent batch of popular new series for Apple TV Plus.
Slow Horses Season 2 Trailer
The second season of Slow Horses has an official trailer that emphasises the intrigue surrounding the potential reactivation and assault plan of Russian sleeper operatives that is at the heart of this new season. Watch the trailer right below:
Some noteworthy points include the fact that there will be some daytime sequences 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.
Slow Horses Season 2 Plot
The espionage books in Mick Herron’s Slough House series, which centre on a gang of disgraced MI5 operatives 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 novel Slow Horses.
So it seems natural that the second season of Slow Horses will be based on the second novel in the Herron trilogy, Dead Lions. The following is Apple TV’s official season summary:
“In season two, long-buried Cold War secrets emerge which threaten to bring carnage to the streets of London. When a liaison with Russian villains takes a fatal turn, our hapless heroes must overcome their individual failings and raise their spy game in a race to prevent a catastrophic incident.”
Slow Horses Season 2 Cast
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, although 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).
Will there be 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 looks to come after Real Tigers, the third instalment in Mick Herron’s Slough House series.
Based on the fourth novel in the series, Spook Street, Season 4 opens with a bombing that explodes personal secrets and shakes the Slough House’s already shaky foundations.
