Apple TV+ has revealed a new trailer for Season 2 of Slow Horses, a drama series starring Gary Oldman as the unwilling leader of a group of disgraced spies. The series adapts the best-selling novels by author Mick Herron, and Season 2 is set to tell the story of the second book in the collection, Dead Lions.
The new trailer brings back Jackson Lamb (Oldman) and the spies of Slough House, an espionage department where MI5 puts all the agents who disgraced themselves for whatever reason. Jackson is more than happy to keep his team doing a tedious desk job for the rest of their lives, but trouble has a way of finding the Sough House. For Season 2, a group of Russian sleeper agents infiltrating British society has been woken up, bringing back horrors only known during the Cold War. So, to prevent a cataclysmic event, the Slough House spies will have to use their low profile to investigate a crime that the MI5 has trouble solving.
Slow Horses’ cast includes Academy Award nominee Kristin Scott Thomas, BAFTA Scotland Award winner Jack Lowden, Saskia Reeves, Rosalind Eleazar, Christopher Chung, Freddie Fox, Chris Reilly, Samuel West, Sophie Okonedo, Aimee-Ffion Edwards, Kadiff Kirwan, and Academy Award nominee Jonathan Pryce.
The first season of Slow Horses was released earlier this year. However, since director James Hawes shot Season 2 in its entirety before the first season was released, we are being treated with two seasons in 2022. The series production process should keep the momentum going forwards, as Slow Horses was renewed up to Season 4.
The first two episodes of Slow Horses Season 2 will come to Apple TV+ on Friday, December 2. After that, new episodes follow weekly, every Friday, until the season finale on December 30. Check out the trailer and synopsis for Season 2 of Slow Horses below.
In season two, long-buried Cold War secrets emerge which threaten to bring carnage to the streets of London. When a liaison with Russian villains takes a fatal turn, our hapless heroes must overcome their individual failings and raise their spy game in a race to prevent a catastrophic incident.
