With only one season released, Slow Horses received a new revamp for the third and fourth to launch via AppleTV+. It is an adaptation of the novels by Mick Herron which follows a team from the British intelligence service made up of people who saw the end of their careers due to past mistakes and end up as part of a base of operations based in a place abandoned by MI5.
On April 3, the espionage thriller debuted with its first two episodes, and the rest of the four were released on a weekly basis. This Wednesday, the service streaming ordered the renewal for two more seasons, since the second season will arrive sometime this yearas previously confirmed by the company.
“This espionage drama series with hints of black humor tells the story of a team of British intelligence service agents who, by making mistakes that ended their careers, end up working in an abandoned MI5 headquarters. Under the command of the infamous Jackson Lamb, a leader as genial as he is hot-tempered, they delve into the artifices of the world of espionage to defend England from sinister forces.” Slow Horses.
