Slow Horses Season 4 First Look

Today, Apple TV+ unveiled a first look at Slow Horses Season 4, starring Academy Award winner Gary Oldman. The fourth season of the BAFTA Award-winning espionage series is based on Spook Street, the fourth novel in the CWA Gold Dagger Award-winning Mick Herron spy series Slough House.

Slow Horses Season 4 will premiere globally on Wednesday, September 4, with the first two episodes followed by one new episode weekly, every Wednesday through October 2, on Apple TV+.

Slow Horses Season 4 First Look

Slow Horses is a darkly humorous espionage drama that follows a dysfunctional team of British intelligence agents who serve in an MI5 dumping ground department known unaffectionately as Slough House. Season four opens with a bombing that detonates personal secrets, rocking Slough House’s already unstable foundations.

Gary Oldman stars as Jackson Lamb, the brilliant but misanthropic leader of the spies. They 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.
