The third season of Slow Horses, which will be available on Apple TV+ in 2023, has had a lot of information about Cartwright, Taverner, the annoying Jackson Lamb, and the rest of Slough House exposed. In Slow Horses, MI5 spies who have been exiled to Slough House, the agency’s administrative hub, are followed.
These spies get punishment but haven’t done enough to merit termination, so they are forced to labour in Slough House until they leave or their obnoxious manager Jackson Lamb (Gary Oldman) persuades them to do so. Despite their reputation, the “Slow Horses” are nonetheless able to carry out crucial intelligence jobs for Britain.
Both of Slow Horses’ seasons have garnered high ratings from critics; season 1 has a Rotten Tomatoes score of 95%, while season 2 has a score of 100%. The ensemble cast and the departure from typical espionage thriller tropes by having the slow horses incompetent at their tasks have received a lot of praise.
Each season of Slow Horses to date has been based on a subsequent book in the series of Mick Herron’s Slough House books. Slow Horses seasons 3 and 4 have both been announced and based on rumours and revelations, season 3 ought to be just as fascinating as seasons 2 and 3.
The most recent Slow Horses season 3 news was when Apple officially revealed the release date in September 2023. It is now official that the premiere date for Slow Horses season 3 on Apple TV+ will be December 1, 2023.
The Slow Horses season 3 release date announcement also included some first-look images, giving viewers their first glance at what to anticipate from Jackson Lamb and the rest of the Slow Horses of Slough House when they return.
Is Slow Horses Season 3 Confirmed?
Even before the second season of the show debuted, Apple TV Plus announced that seasons 3 and 4 of Slow Horses would launch simultaneously in June 2022. Apple stated that the third season would be centred around the third book in the series, Real Tigers, just like the first two seasons had.
When is the Release Date of Slow Horses Season 3?
December 1 has been scheduled as the premiere date for Slow Horses season 3. Slow Horses will only be available on Apple TV+, much like the first two seasons, and Apple has no intention of making it available elsewhere. Eight episodes of Season 3 will air each week, with the season finale airing on December 29.

Who Will Be in the Cast of Slow Horses Season 3?
Naturally, the three main characters of the series, played by Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour, Harry Potter), Jack Lowden (Mary Queen of Scots, Benediction), and Kristin Scott Thomas (Darkest Hour, The English Patient), as well as the general director of MI5, Diana Taverner, will be included in the cast of Slow Horses season 3.
Sope Dirisu, who will be portraying the new character Sean Donovan, a former chief of security at the British Embassy in Istanbul, will shortly be joining Saskia Reeves’ supporting character Catherine Standish, who will be making a second appearance.
Many Slow Horses fan favourites should return, including Rosalind Eleazar (Louisa Guy), Jonathan Pryce (David Cartwright), Freddie Fox (James “Spider” Webb), Dustin Demri-Burns (Min Harper), Aimée-Ffion Edwards (Shirley Dander), and Kadiff Kirwan (Marcus Longridge), though this isn’t entirely confirmed.

Is There a Slow Horses Season 3 Trailer?
The season 3 conclusion of Slow Horses featured a teaser trailer for the upcoming season, which promises to be even more dramatic, mysterious, funny, and intelligent than the previous seasons.
Early in the film, Standish is identified as missing, and the remaining moments of the brief teaser include various MI5 agents and Slough House residents fighting, shooting, and—of course—drinking. Additionally, there is a suggestion of certain Elvis and JFK conspiracy theories, suggesting that season 3 of Slow Horses may make some parallels to such “deep state” notions about governments conspiring against their own people.

What Are the Story Details of Slow Horses Season 3?
Although the third season of Slow Horses’ tale will be based on the Slough House trilogy’s Real Tigers, book three, some plot details can already be inferred. Although the plot was neatly resolved at the end of season 2, the Slough House agents are still at work and looking for the next case to look into in season 3.
The death of agent Min Harper (Dustin Demri-Burns) in season 2’s main plot will undoubtedly have an impact. His passing will probably have an ongoing impact on his coworkers.
The Slough House members are once more involved in a criminal scheme in Real Tigers and, presumably, Slow Horses season 3, but this time, one of their own is the primary target. Standish is kidnapped and held for ransom by an unidentified organization.
Jackson, River, and the rest of the slow horses must break into MI5’s offices and obtain useful information to trade in order to pay off the Standish’s kidnappers. The Slough House agents will be pitted against their own command in Season 3 of Slow Horses, and they’ll discover that the conspiracy extends all the way down to Downing Street.
