This Apple Original series, Slow Horses, is based on Mick Herron’s crime novels from his ‘Slough House’ series. The discredited agents of Slough House, known as Slow Horses, are the protagonists of this comic spy thriller. Although these disgraced agents are relegated to the filthy building to finish off their careers in exile, our courageous band of misfits always manages to find themselves in the heart of some sort of terrorist danger or current scandal. Jackson Lamb, played by Gary Oldman, is the group’s brave leader. He is a crude, unkempt man who is actually quite astute. With the help of his dependable staff, Lamb can always uncover the truth.
On its first release, Slow Horses received overwhelmingly positive reviews, with critics applauding the film’s acting, action, and snappy, hilarious narrative. While the general quality did decrease from the first to the second season, the second season suffered most from repetition and cliches. I agree with the general consensus that the second season was not quite as good as the first, but that it was still an espionage genre masterpiece. Gary Oldman’s performance as the obnoxious Jackson Lamb is a highlight; it’s clear he’s enjoying himself immensely in the part. Even if the series’s early excitement has worn off, it is still quite powerful. As Season 2 comes to a close, fans are wondering if there will be a Season 3.
Slow Horses season 3 Renewed or Cancelled ?
If you’re a fan of Jackson Lamb, you’ll be happy to know that Apple TV+ has ordered two more seasons of Slow Horses. The popular criminal show will return for a third and fourth season.
There’s a rumour going around that “Slow Horses” is a darkly comedic espionage drama about a dysfunctional team of British intelligence agents working in a branch of MI5 called Slough House. Jackson Lamb, played by Gary Oldman, is the clever but irascible commander of the spies who wind up at Slough House after making fatal mistakes while navigating the smoke and mirrors of the espionage business.
Christopher Chung, Freddie Fox, Chris Reilly, Samuel West, Sophie Okonedo, Aimee-Ffion Edwards, Kadiff Kirwan, and Jonathan Pryce round out the ensemble cast alongside Kristin Scott Thomas, Jack Lowden, Saskia Reeves, Rosalind Eleazar, and Jonathan Pryce.
When one of their own is kidnapped in Season 3, Lamb’s discredited spies band together to stop a renegade agent. At the beginning of Season 4, a bombing shakes the already shaky foundations of Slough House by exploding personal secrets.
