Slow Horses is one of the most acclaimed series airing on Apple TV+ right now, and they’re not letting go of it anytime soon. Only a few days after the third season of this spy thriller wrapped up, the streaming giant was quick to renew it for Season 5.

Slow Horses draws inspiration from Mick Herron’s Slough House spy novels and centers on a team of dysfunctional MI5 agents trying to defend England from sinister forces. Here’s what the show’s upcoming fifth season has in store, according to Apple TV’s official logline:

“Everyone is suspicious when resident tech nerd Roddy Ho has a glamorous new girlfriend, but when a series of increasingly bizarre events occur across the city, it falls to the Slow Horses to work out how everything is connected.”

The Oscar winner Gary Oldman leads the series in the role of the notorious Jackson Lamb—and he’s in pretty good company. The show’s cast also includes Kristin Scott Thomas, Jack Lowden, Saskia Reeves, Rosalind Eleazar, Christopher Chung, Samuel West, Sophie Okonedo, Aimee-Ffion Edwards, Kadiff Kirwan, and Jonathan Pryce.

Slow Horses will return for its fourth season in late 2024, and it’s expected to feature a few new faces once it comes back, starting with Hugo Weaving, Joanna Scanlan, and Ruth Bradley.
