Apple TV+ announced a fifth season for the broadly acclaimed, darkly comedic spy drama Slow Horses, following its season three finale. The fourth series was announced in 2022.

The five-time BAFTA Award-nominated series stars Academy Award winner Gary Oldman, who was recently honoured with a Golden Globe nomination for his outstanding performance as the irascible Jackson Lamb.

Slow Horses is a darkly humorous espionage drama that follows a dysfunctional team of British intelligence agents who serve in a dumping ground department of MI5 known unaffectionately as Slough House.

Oldman stars as Lamb, the brilliant but cantankerous leader of the spies, who end up in Slough House due to their career-ending mistakes as they frequently find themselves blundering around the smoke and mirrors of the espionage world. 

In season five of Slow Horses, 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.

After all, Lamb knows that in the world of espionage, “London Rules” should always apply.

The ensemble cast includes Academy Award nominee Kristin Scott Thomas, BAFTA Scotland Award winner Jack Lowden, Saskia Reeves, Rosalind Eleazar, Christopher Chung, Samuel West, Sophie Okonedo, Aimee-Ffion Edwards, Kadiff Kirwan and Academy Award nominee Jonathan Pryce.

The complete first three seasons of Slow Horses are now streaming on Apple TV+.
