Slow Horses, Gary OldmanApple's hit spy thriller leaves little to the imagination. Based on the Slough House series of books from Mick Herron, Apple TV's Slow Horses follows the antics of a ragtag group of disgraced MI5 agents who have been demoted and assigned to Slough House. The series stars Gary Oldman as the cantankerous Slough House supervisor Jackson Lamb.

In the words of Managing Editor Adam Smith, Slow Horses is a "genuinely excellent spy thriller that's like John Le Carre-level spycraft run through a Succession insult generator."

When does Slow Horses Season 4: Spook Street release?

Slow Horses Season 4: Spook Street began filming soon after the filming of Season 3: Real Tigers wrapped in March 2023. 

Slow Horses Season 4 is expected to be released towards the end of 2024. If it follows the same trend of seasons two and three, we should see the first two episodes drop on the same day sometime in November or December, with the rest of the season released weekly.

What is Slow Horses all about?


As mentioned above, Slow Horses is based on the Slough House spy series of novels by Mick Herron. Each season so far has followed the beats of each book in the series (Slow Horses, Dead Lions, Real Tigers.) It follows a band of British intelligence agents who have all found themselves in MI5's naughty corner, Slough House, for various career-defining blunders.

Slough House acts as a way to keep the agency's rejects away from the action without outright firing them. The sheer drudgery of Slough House is only made worse by the head of the department, Gary Oldman's cynical Jackson Lamb, who hopes his team of rejects will quit altogether.

That is until the team of MI5 outcasts is embroiled in a much bigger conspiracy, presenting each agent with an opportunity to claw their way out of Slough House and back to the big leagues.

How does Apple TV Plus compare?


Apple TV Plus is kind of unique as a streaming service. It doesn't have thousands upon thousands of TV shows and movies like Amazon Prime Video, and it doesn't offer tiered plans like Netflix or Stan. Its focus is very on quality over quantity and that seems to be paying off in a big way. Some of the biggest and best TV shows of recent memory are Apple TV Plus originals, including but not limited to, Severance, For All Mankind, Ted Lasso, Silo, Masters of the Air and Mythic Quest.
