Everything To Know About ‘Slow Horses’ Season 5



Slow Horses has earned itself a place amongst the fun and hilariously dark shows of the current time. The insanely binge-able series makes it quite fun to see ‘espionage’ and detective work being done, almost to the point of miraculous failure that never fails.

The show has attracted quite a fanbase for this reason. Slow Horses is basically an adaptation of Mick Herron’s Slough House series. It centers around a dysfunctional group of British intelligence officers that are sent to Slough House for a variety of reasons that terminate their careers, giving them the nickname ‘Slow Horses.’

The group, led by the eccentric & funny Gary Oldman as Jackson Lamb, is frequently tricked by their more polished colleagues in Regents Park but always manages to save the day. Now let’s explore if Slow Horses season 5 is happening!

Slow Horses Season 5 Release Date Speculation

Only a few weeks after the Gary Oldman-led spy drama/thriller Slow Horses concluded its third season. Apple TV+ has officially announced the show’s fifth season. This has come as a news quite the surprise, but full of joy to the audience of the show. The show received pre-renewals for seasons three and four in less than a year and a half after its premiere.

Slow Horses has been a big success and we anticipate more excitement ahead. Slow Horses season 5 will not premiere until 2025 at least, since season 4 is in the works, and the season 3 finale just hit the screens a few days prior. However, knowing that another season is on the cards is already an excitement!

What To Expect From Slow Horses Season 5?

The tagline of Slow Horses season 5 has already been released. It gives enough hints for us to piece together the exciting and dangerous case the detectives will take up this time. The official logline for Slow Horses season 5 reads, “Everyone is suspicious when resident tech nerd Roddy Ho has a glamorous new girlfriend. But when a string of increasingly bizarre events occurs across the city, it falls to the Slow Horses to figure out how everything is connected.”

Jackson Lamb is aware that ‘London Rules’ should always be followed in the field of espionage, after all. The forthcoming season will be predicated on the fifth novel in the series by Mick Herron, titled ‘London Rules.’ The season will most likely include the comeback of Gary Oldman, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance as the intelligence agent Jackson Lamb.

Slow Horses Season 5 Cast & Characters

Slow Horses is definitely filled with exciting members. Therefore, despite the obvious return of Gary Oldman, there would be a lot of characters reuniting.  

  • Gary Oldman as Jackson Lamb
  • Jack Lowden as River Cartwright
  • Kristin Scott Thomas as Diana Taverner
  • Saskia Reeves as Catherine Standish
  • Rosalind Eleazar as Louisa Guy
  • Christopher Chung as Roddy Ho
  • Samuel West as Peter Judd MP

We will even see the addition of new characters who will bring more excitement and new dynamic to the season.


Slow Horses season 5 early renewal just hints towards the series’ popularity among the audience. We can expect more hijinks from the beloved team and are excited to see where they end up. What are your thoughts on the early renewal? We will keep you posted on the release date and more!
