Slow Horses is still a hidden gem for Apple TV Plus. Critics and fans of the spy drama have nothing but good things to say about it. On Rotten Tomatoes, the first two seasons have a combined 97% “Fresh” rating from critics and a 94% “Fresh” rating from viewers. Slow Horses season 3 will bring more episodes, which is good news.
The series is based on a book series by Mick Herron. The books are about a group of disgraced MI5 agents who are sent to Slough House. They are called “Slow Horses” and they are led by the apparently old Jackson Lamb. Here’s everything we know about Slow Horses’ third season.
Table of Contents
Will Slow Horses return for a third season?
Yes. In June 2022, it was revealed that the series would return for at least a third and fourth season, which would be shot back-to-back like seasons 1 and 2. Subsequent seasons will be based on the novels Real Tigers and Ghost Streetcompleting half of Mick Herron’s eight volume book series (although a ninth is on the way).
Lowden told RadioTimes.com exclusively ahead of the second season premiere that he would like to continue playing River and adapting Herron’s novels beyond the currently planned third and fourth seasons.
When does Slow Horses season 3 come out?
It’s hard to predict when Season 3 of Slow Horses will come out. Seasons 1 and 2 were released in quick succession, both in 2022, as they were shot simultaneously. Seasons 3 and 4 were later shot back-to-back, implying a longer interval between seasons 2 and 3 is possible.
However, with seasons announced in Summer 2022 and filming to begin shortly thereafter, we expect new episodes to appear on Apple TV+ at the end of 2023. We will keep this page updated as new information about the company becomes available.

What could be the plot of Slow Horses season 3?
Slow Horses Season 3 is based on Real Tigers, the third book in Mick Herron’s book series. The book’s blurb reads: “Catherine Standish knows that spies never have chance encounters. She’s spent enough time in intelligence to understand deceit, double play, and underhandedness.
What she doesn’t understand is why anyone would attack her: a recovered alcoholic pushing paper in Jackson Lamb’s kingdom of exiles at Slough House.
“It can’t be personal to whoever is holding her captive. It has to do with Slough House. It’s probably Jackson Lamb. And, say what you will about Lamb, he will never let a coffee down. He might even be someone you can entrust your life to…”
