Slow Horses Season 4 Release Date, Cast, Plot & Everything We Know So Far

The spy thriller show Slow Horses is based on the Slough House book series (also called the Jackson Lamb series) by Mick Herron. It’s about the people working at Slough House, a branch of MI5, where harmful agents are sent to end their time as inferior employees.

But, under the direction of their brilliant but unpleasant boss, Jackson Lamb, the “Slow Horses” often stand as the last line of defence between Britain and a national disaster.

When it first aired on April 1, 2022, it mainly got good reviews. The second season began on December 2, 2022, and the third on November 29, 2023. You don’t have to worry about when the fourth season will come out.

Will there be a Slow Horses Season 4?

Yes! It was announced in June 2022 that the show would return for at least a third and a fourth season, according to Radio Times. The new seasons would air right after seasons 1 and 2, just like the first two.

Even more episodes might be coming soon. James Hawes, who directed the first season, told Deadline that he hoped there would be more, saying, “There is every hope and intention that there will be another couple of seasons in the immediate future.”

Speculation about Release Date of Slow Horses Season 4

Seasons 1 and 2 came out right after each other in April and December 2022, even though they were shot right after each other. After that, there was a more extended break between seasons 2 and 3, but since seasons 3 and 4 were shot right after each other, we might see season 4 soon.

So, in the year’s first half, season 4 will come out sometime in 2024. We’ll make changes to this page as soon as something is proven.

What Season 4 of Slow Horses Will Be About?

As per reports of Screenrant, the biggest secret that Slow Horses needs to solve is which member of the titular team has died. It is shown in the preview at the end of the third season that one of the horses in the title is slow.

It’s usual for the spy comedy on Apple TV+ that the surprise comes almost like a joke. Jackson Lamb brushes off the idea of taking a shower, saying that it’s not right now since one of his own has died. That person needs to be clarified, though.

One more thing that has been going on since season 3 of Slow Horses is that River Cartwright (Lowden) has a copy of a top-secret file. After Cartwright and Louisa (Eleazar) get out of a scary situation alive, this takes place.

Lamb also saves Standish (Reeves), but Sean Donovan (Sope Dirisu) dies while looking for the file that could have hurt the British secret services. It shows that they did many bad things, like killing a team member for giving out important information.

Smith also gave hints about what stories would happen in the same talk. He said that Standish and Lamb wouldn’t be fighting for a while, which brought up the idea of River and Louisa dating.

The fourth season of Slow Horses will be based on Mick Herron’s book Spook Street. But it’s clear that the show, one of the big hits on Apple TV+, has made its way and won’t go away for long.

Who will be back for Slow Horses Season 4?

Slow Horses

At the end of season three, there is a sneak peek at season four, which shows that many of our favourite Slow Horses will return for the next season. Slough House would not be the same without Gary Olisson Lamb. In season four, he will be joined by returned cast members, such as

‚ÄĘ Jack Lowden¬†as¬†River Cartwright
‚Äʬ†Kristin Scott Thomas¬†as¬†Diana Taverner
‚Äʬ†Saskia Reeves¬†as¬†Catherine Standish
‚Äʬ†Aimee-Ffion Edwards¬†as¬†Shirley Dander
‚Äʬ†Kadiff Kirwan¬†as¬†Marcus Longridge
‚Äʬ†Christopher Chung¬†as¬†Roddy Ho
‚Äʬ†Rosalind Eleazar¬†as¬†Louisa Guy
‚Äʬ†Jonathan Pryce¬†as¬†David Cartwright

Digital Spy says that Samuel West as the shady on-off Conservative MP Peter Judd and Sophie Okonedo as the disgraced ex-head of MI5 may also show up, even though they’re not in the trailer.

Fans of the books will recognize Hugo Weaving as a possible bad guy because he has ties to the Cartwright family. The preview also shows James Callis as one of Taverner’s colleagues at MI5 and Ruth Bradley as a new character Jackson Lamb introduces to the “delights” of Slough House.

Will there be more seasons of Slow Horses? How Many Books Are There in Mick Heron’s “Slough House” Series?

Slow Horses

During his career, Heron has written stand-alone books, collections of short stories, and several novellas. However, his “Slough House” series currently has eight complete novels, which are mentioned below in the order they were published:

  • Book 1:¬†Slow Horses¬†(2010)
  • Book 2:¬†Dead Lions¬†(2013)
  • Book 3:¬†Real Tigers¬†(2016)
  • Book 4:¬†Spook Street¬†(2017)
  • Book 5:¬†London Rules¬†(2018)
  • Book 6:¬†Joe Country¬†(2019)
  • Book 7:¬†Slough House¬†(2021)
  • Book 8:¬†Bad Actors¬†(2022)

Since “Slough House” is based on many different books, fans may ask if the show will continue after Season 4. Decider says that Apple TV+ hasn’t officially picked up more seasons of the show yet, but Smith says he’d be happy to make “really as many as Apple, Gary, and the audience want.”

Is there a trailer for the Slow Horses Season 4?
