Apple TV+ Renews ‘Slow Horses’ for Season 5

The critically acclaimed series, Slow Horses, has officially been greenlit for a fifth season on Apple TV+. A seasoned blend of suspense and offbeat humor, Slow Horses follows the misadventures of a dysfunctional group of MI5 agents stationed at Slough House. The star-studded cast includes the likes of Kristin Scott Thomas, Jack Lowden, Saskia Reeves, and Jonathan Pryce.

Next Season Inspired by ‘London Rules’

News of the fifth season renewal swiftly follows the release of Season 3, which once more sees Academy Award winner, Gary Oldman, reprising his role as the rough-around-the-edges spy master, Jackson Lamb. The influencers at Variety indicate that Season 5 will draw from ‘London Rules’, the fifth novel in the series.

“Everyone is suspicious when resident tech nerd Roddy Ho has a glamorous new girlfriend, but when a series of increasingly bizarre events occur across the city, it falls to the Slow Horses to work out how everything is connected. After all, Jackson Lamb knows that in the world of espionage, ‘London Rules’ should always apply.”
