Apple TV+ Drops Trailer for Season Two of ‘Slow Horses’
Apple TV+ has unveiled the trailer for season two of the espionage series Slow Horses. Starring Academy Award winner Gary Oldman, the season will make its global debut Friday, Dec. 2. The six-episode season will premiere with the first two episodes, followed by a new episode every Friday.
Based on the novel Dead Lions by CWA Gold Dagger Award-winner Mick Heron, the novel is the second in the Slow Horses series. In this season, secrets long forgotten from the Cold War reemerge, and these secrets are now a threat to the city of London. To complicate matters, a liaison with Russian villains turns fatal, and the heroes of the series are forced to explore their inner selves in order to stop a mishap.
According to Apple TV+,
The darkly humorous espionage drama 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 Jackson Lamb, the brilliant but irascible 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. Starring alongside Oldman in the ensemble cast are Academy Award nominee Kristin Scott Thomas, BAFTA Scotland Award winner Jack Lowden, Saskia Reeves, Rosalind Eleazar, Dustin Demri-Burns, Christopher Chung, Freddie Fox, Chris Reilly, Samuel West, Aimee-Ffion Edwards, Kadiff Kirwan and Academy Award nominee Jonathan Pryce.
Slow Horses is a production by See-Saw Films. Will Smith (Veep) is responsible for bringing the adaptation to television. Additionally, Jamie Laurenson, Iain Canning, Hakan Kousetta, Douglas Urbankski, Emile Sherman, Gail Mutrux, Will Smith and Graham Yost serve as executive producers. Season two of Slow Horses features directing by Jeremy Lovering.
Joining Slough House
Of course, who could forget that none other than the incomparable Mick Jagger penned the opening theme song of the show. Interestingly, Slow Horses is also the first theme song Jagger has written for a television series. However, the new Slow Horses trailer seems to have gone with the classic “London Calling” by The Clash.
There’s a lot going on with Apple TV+ over the past few weeks. In addition to bringing some series to DVD and Blu-Ray, reports also indicate that the streaming service is looking into advertising. While nothing is yet confirmed, many are suspecting that Apple TV+ may introduce an Ad-Tier subscription plan.
Of course, if you’re looking for even more interesting news, there’s also the new Christmas special The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse, which has none other than Jony Ive as an executive producer.
