The 81st Golden Globe-nominated series Slow Horses is returning with an exciting 5th season this year
Gary Oldman has breathed exciting life into the world of Slow Horses, not only captivating audiences with his portrayal of Jackson Lamb but also pushing the thriller-drama to impressive award recognition. After securing two BAFTA wins in 2023, Oldman's gripping performance has now earned Slow Horses a prestigious Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor this new year.
Slow Horses story
Mick Herron's acclaimed Slough House book comes to life in Slow Horses, a spy-thriller where disgraced MI5 agents, each with their own dark past, find themselves exiled to the dreary confines of Slough House. But beneath the surface of paper-pushing and forced tea breaks, a hidden spark of ambition and a chance to redeem their faded reputations ignite, pushing them into a high-stakes game of espionage.
Season 5 renewal
However, the fourth season is yet to be released, and AppleTV+ surprised fans with an early renewal for a fifth season of the critically acclaimed espionage drama. This unexpected announcement suggests the streamer's confidence in the series' future and its potential to captivate audiences for even longer.
What to expect in Season 5?
In the fifth season, Slow Horses is expected to show Roddy surprising everyone with a fancy new girlfriend. Things get weird in the city, with strange happenings popping up everywhere. Now it's up to the misfit spies of Slough House to figure out what's going on and how it all connects.
According to US media, the director for the fifth season has not been announced yet. The series has garnered so many viewerships since 2022 that AppleTV+ is not giving them a single chance to stay hooked.
Season 4 release
Last year, showrunner Will Smith hinted that the fourth season of Slow Horses would have a Fall 2024 release. This delay allows the excitement of the third season to cool down, building anticipation for the next chapter in the Slough House saga.
