The Irascible Jackson Lamb to Return as Fifth Season of Apple TV+ Spy Drama “SLOW HORSES” Confirmed

Just as we’re still reeling from the third season’s cliffhanger of a finale and the sneak preview of season four that followed, Apple TV+ has today confirmed a fifth season of the celebrated, darkly comedic spy drama “Slow Horses.” The five-time BAFTA-nominated series stars Academy Award winner Gary Oldman, who recently picked up a Golden Globe nomination for his sterling performance as the cantankerous, inexhaustibly quotable Jackson Lamb.

Since its premiere in 2022, “Slow Horses” has been celebrated as “undoubtedly the best spy series on television”; a “forceful, funny, and conspiratorial” series featuring “excellent writing and performances” that is just “so damn good.” All three seasons of “Slow Horses” hold a Certified Fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes, as the series continues to receive global accolades from critics and fans alike. 

Adapted from the next novel in the CWA Gold Dagger Award-winning Mick Herron “Slough House” book series, The fifth season of the show sees everyone suspicious when local tech nerd Roddy Ho starts dating a glamorous new girlfriend, but when a series of increasingly bizarre events occur across the city, it’s up to the Slow Horses to work out how all the pieces of the puzzle fit together. After all, Jackson Lamb knows that in the world of espionage, ‘London Rules’ should always apply.

“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. Oldman stars as Jackson Lamb, the brilliant but cantankerous 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. The ensemble cast includes Academy Award nominee Kristin Scott Thomas, BAFTA Scotland Award winner Jack Lowden, Saskia Reeves, Rosalind Eleazar, Christopher Chung, Samuel West, Sophie Okonedo, Aimee-Ffion Edwards, Kadiff Kirwan and Academy Award nominee Jonathan Pryce.

The series is produced for Apple TV+ by See-Saw Films and adapted for television by Will Smith. Will Smith, Jamie Laurenson, Hakan Kousetta, Iain Canning, Emile Sherman, Douglas Urbanski, Gail Mutrux, Julian Stevens and Graham Yost serve as executive producers on the series. The director for season five has not yet been announced.

The complete first three seasons of “Slow Horses” are now streaming on Apple TV+ whilst season four was announced in 2022.
