Slow Horses Season 2 Release Date, Cast and Plot – Season 2 of Slow Horses have already been announced by Apple TV+, and it has even been recorded.
After an explosive and surprising climax, Season 1 of Slow Horses has come to a close.
While Hassan was released, the kidnappers were dead or imprisoned, and Lamb and his crew were acquitted of any wrongdoing, there are still a lot of loose ends, not least the horrific flashback that explains how Lamb wound up at Slough House and why he has such a vendetta towards River.
Fans are naturally eager to see more from the Apple TV+ spy series, and those who stayed until the end may have already gotten a hint as to where things may head next.
Mick Herron’s book series has become a publishing sensation, and a cast as large as this one deserves to be shut in and fully utilised. So, what can we expect from Season 2 of Slow Horses?

Slow Horses Season 2 Release Date: When will the second season of Slow Horses premiere?
All bets are off now that it’s been revealed that the cast and crew shot two seasons in a row; Apple can release the second anytime it wants. There’s no need to wait a whole year.
However, if the first season’s audience response is positive, Apple is likely to want to move through with production on a third season as soon as possible.
If this occurs, the second season will most likely be released halfway between the first and the third season’s expected release date. For the time being, we’re predicting late 2022.
Slow Horses Season 2 Expected Cast Details
Olivia Cooke will not return in Season 2 for the reasons stated above, unless the adaptation of Mick Herron’s novel Dead Lions is much looser than Slow Horses. However, all of your other Slough House and Regents Park favourites are present, and they’re all wrong:
- Gary Oldman as Jackson Lamb
- Christopher Chung as Roddy Ho
- Jack Lowden as River Cartwright
- Saskia Reeves as Catherine Standish
- Jonathan Pryce as David Cartwright
- Kristin Scott Thomas as Diana Taverner
- Rosalind Eleazar as Louisa Guy
- Dustin Demri-Burns as Min Harper
You’ve seen the last of Antonio Aakeel’s Hassan and his kidnappers, unless the writers are playing fast and loose with the tale.
Rade Erbedija, as former Russian agent Nikolai Katinsky is one of the new cast members coming this season.
Marcus Longridge and Shirley Dander, two new Slough House recruits in the second book, are also set to be announced soon. According to Variety, Aimee-Ffion Edwards of Peaky Blinders and Kadiff Kirwan of This Is Going to Hurt have been cast in the project, and those two parts would be the most natural fit for them.
Season 2 of Slow Horses plot: What will happen in Season 2 of Slow Horses?
Spoilers follow, assuming the plot of Dead Lions will be continued in season two.
Dickie Bow, a former low-level informant for Jackson Lamb, rides a train and then a bus with a mysterious individual he recognises from the past. Bow dies of natural causes, but Lamb senses something is wrong and utilises his desperate squad to rummage through long-buried Cold War secrets.
Being espionage secrets, they don’t remain buried for long, and the UK is soon faced with a very real threat.
Slow Horses Season 2 Trailer: Is there a trailer for the second season of Slow Horses?
