Slow Horses season 3 potential release date, cast, plot and everything you need to know

Slow Horses spoilers follow.

Slow Horses, Apple TV+’s adaptation of the hit book series by Mick Herron, has over two seasons successfully destroyed our faith in the nation’s security services by revealing just how much they rely on luck – and occasional, freak moments of competence – in the face of institutional decay, bureaucracy, corruption and indifference.

We’ve suffered through flatulence on an epic scale, coped with staggering levels of over-falsity of confidence and had to watch Gary Oldman talk with his mouth full more often than anyone should have to. And it’s been great.

Which is why we’re thrilled to say that not only is a third season of Slow Horses coming, with filming already under way, but that a fourth is confirmed as well. We’re condemned to two more years of spies’ purgatory in Slough House, and we love it.

      Shame Gary Oldman is mulling retirement even though there are ever more Slow Horses they remain a must see and a must read. Although Mick Herron’s Bad Actors meanders a bit, it is still almost as compelling a read as Slow Horses. Mind you, that’s not surprising: on Amazon, Mick Herron is described as “The John Le Carré of our generation” and it’s all to do with bad actors and slow horses. Who would have thought le Carré might be associated with “any generation”! In terms of acclaimed spy novels, Herron’s Slough House series has definitely made him Top Of The Pops in terms of anti-Bond writers. For Len Deighton devotees that ends a long and victorious reign at number one.

      Raw noir espionage of the Slough House quality is rare, whether or not with occasional splashes of sardonic hilarity. Gary Oldman’s performance in Slow Horses has given the Slough House series the leg up the charts it deserved. Will Jackson Lamb become the next Bond? It would be a rich paradox if he became an established anti-Bond brand ambassador. Maybe Lamb should change his name to Happy Jack or Pinball Wizard or even Harry Jack. After all, Harry worked for Palmer as might Edward Burlington for Bill Fairclough (real life MI6 codename JJ) in another noir but factual spy series, The Burlington Files.

      Of course, espionage aficionados should know that both The Slough House and Burlington Files series were rejected by risk averse publishers who didn’t think espionage existed unless it was fictional and created by Ian Fleming or David Cornwell. However, they probably didn’t know that Fairclough once drummed with Keith Moon in their generation in the seventies. Both books are a must read for espionage illuminati.
