Hit spy thriller drama titled Slow Horses is a show that is inspired by author Mick Herron’s novel series called Slough House. Airing since early 2022, the producers of the show are about to drop a new season of the show, and we are here to tell you all you need to know about it.
Directed by James Hawes and Jeremy Lovering, the show stars Gary Oldman in the role of Jackson Lamb, Jack Lowden as River Cartwright, and Kristin Scott Thomas as Diana Taverner in leading roles.
Apart from these leads, the show also has Saskia Reeves, Olivia Cooke, Rosalind Eleazar, Christopher Chung, Paul Higgins, Kadiff Kirwan, and the list goes on.
This spy series brings to fans of thriller and mystery a quintessential group of dysfunctional MI5 agents who function under their equally notorious and infamous leader, Jackson Lamb. The show follows the group as they work their way around crime and filth, protecting England from evil forces.
The fact that the show had undergone the making process with actor Gary Oldman as the lead was announced all the way back in 2019, and the expectations of fans have been high ever since. Clearly, the producers were not disappointed, considering the first season managed to establish itself as a critically acclaimed series.
The first season introduced us to a team of rejected MI5 agents who had not been fired but were not being treated like respected officers either. This group, called Slow Horses by others, was put under their torturing leader, Lamb, who seems to find a twisted pleasure in mentally abusing the team.
This is surely a unique way of introducing our team of spies, but what is even more intriguing is how they all find themselves getting involved in solving schemes that could potentially put all of England in danger. The chemistry that the entire group shares with their despicable leader is something that fans have come to love, as it also makes the show much more dynamic.
The show is addicting, and fans have waited long enough for the new season, so sit back as we tell you all you need to know about the upcoming third installment of Slow Horses.
Plot & Recap
The rejects may have accepted their fate as failed agents, but clearly, the universe had different plans. The first season not only introduced us to the cast but also had them getting involved in solving high-level cases. Things got so serious that the agents finally wanted to prove their worth and capabilities to their fellows, and this officially kickstarted our plot.
By the time the second season came around, the Slow Horses team had already efficiently dealt with threats dangerous to the entire nation, and they had also managed to find in their hands secrets as old as the Cold War. It was never the team that was the problem but the situation and people around them who refused to trust them.
With the agents having proven their worth, Lamb also had to get his act together and be the chief that the team needed. The third season will focus on Lamb as he finally steps out of his comfort zone and has to deal with some heavy changes.
The team will once again be on a mission, this time to find Catherine, who might be missing. Their quest to find Catherine might also bring them face-to-face with a rogue agent. Things are definitely getting intense for our leads, so make sure you continue reading till the end to find out more about the upcoming season.
