Slow Horses Season 2 Release Date: Does Apple TV Renew The Show in 2022?

‘Slow Horses’ dives into the less beautiful aspect of espionage by following the British MI5’s backup unit assigned to the dilapidated old Slough House branch.

Coming off a catastrophically unsuccessful practicing exercise, Agent River Cartwright is captured in menial jobs by the vicious Slough House chief, Jackson Lamb (Gary Oldman).


However, a scary kidnapping and the likelihood of a risky execution galvanize the Slough House crew into action, despite Lamb’s attempts to suppress his underlings and force them to conduct business as usual.

The combination of biting British humor and amateurish espionage, all set against a genuinely horrific narrative, makes for a fascinating watch. Here are all updates about season 2.

Slow Horses Season 2 Release Date

All bets are off: now that it has been established that the actors and crew filmed two seasons concurrently, Apple may cancel the second one at any time. There is no reason to wait a year.


If even though fans reply favorably to the first season, Apple would likely want to start shooting on a third season immediately.

The second season will almost certainly be published midway between the first and the third’s planned release if it occurs. Our best estimation at the moment is late 2022.

Slow Horses Season 2 Plot

Additionally, it does not appear the series will have difficulty locating source material. As previously noted, the first season of Slow Horses is related to Herron’s debut espionage novel.

There are eight volumes in the series as of publishing, the second of which, Dead Lions, will serve as the source for the show’s previously announced Season 2.

Hawes seemed to be rather optimistic about the series’ prospects. He extolled the writing team’s capacity to bring Herron’s work to life while rejoicing over the amount of source material still available: “there is the pledge of additional research to be done in the novels, as well as legs for those character types’ trips through the eight novels that exist,” he said.

It is unknown if Slow Horses intends to adopt a new novel every season — presuming the show’s renewal continues at the current rate — but the future still seems quite bright for the Slough House’s typically gloomy inhabitants.
