Apple TV + is moving fast with Slow Horses. The streamer announced Wednesday that the Gary Oldman spy drama, which was quietly renewed for Season 2 ahead of its April 1 debut, has already been picked up for Seasons 3 and 4.
Adapted from the Mick Herron spy novels, 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,” according to the official logline. “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.”
For Apple, Season 3 will see Lamb’s disgraced spies work together to foil a rogue agent when one of their own is kidnapped. Season 4, meanwhile, opens with a bombing that detonates personal secrets, rocking the already unstable foundations of Slough House.
Season 2, which will consist of six episodes, is set to premiere later this year.
