Slow Horses, the BAFTA nominated Apple TV+ spy drama adapted from Mick Herron’s popular book series, returns with its third season on December 1st when then first two episodes will be available to watch followed by new episodes each week.
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.

In season three, a romantic liaison in Istanbul threatens to expose a buried MI5 secret in London. When Jackson Lamb (Oldman) and his team of misfits are dragged into the fight, they find themselves caught in a conspiracy that threatens the future not just of Slough House but of MI5 itself.
The show’s cast also includes Jack Lowden, Saskia Reeves, Rosalind Eleazar, Christopher Chung, Freddie Fox, Chris Reilly, Samuel West, Sophie Okonedo, Aimee-Ffion Edwards, Kadiff Kirwan and Jonathan Pryce.
Slow Horses is produced for Apple TV+ by See-Saw Films and is adapted for television by Will Smith (“Veep”).
