First Look

FIRST LOOK: Gary Oldman returns to Slough House for the fourth season of Apple TV+ espionage drama Slow Horses, which will debut on September 4.

Adapted from Spook Street, the fourth novel in Mick Herron’s spy novel series, the series continues to follow a dysfunctional team of British intelligence agents who serve in a dumping ground department of MI5 known un-affectionately as Slough House. Season four opens with a bombing that detonates personal secrets, rocking the already unstable foundations of Slough House.

Oldman stars as Jackson Lamb, the brilliant but misanthropic 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 returning ensemble cast also includes Kristin Scott Thomas, Jack Lowden, Saskia Reeves, Rosalind Eleazar, Christopher Chung, Aimee-Ffion Edwards, Kadiff Kirwan and Jonathan Pryce.

Hugo Weaving, Joanna Scanlan, Ruth Bradley, Tom Brooke and James Callis join the show in season four.

Slow Horses is produced for Apple TV+ by See-Saw Films and adapted for television by Will Smith (Veep). Jamie Laurenson, Hakan Kousetta, Iain Canning, Emile Sherman, Jane Robertson, Julian Stevens, Douglas Urbanski, Gail Mutrux, Graham Yost and Will Smith are executive producers on the series. Season four is directed by Adam Randall.

Apple TV+ recently announced a fifth season of Slow Horses, which is set to be adapted from the fifth novel, London Rules.
