Will there be a third season of Slow Horses?
"Slow Horses" fans can rejoice because the series is confirmed to return for a third and fourth season. The decision to shoot these seasons back-to-back, much like the first two, was announced in June 2022. These upcoming seasons will adapt the novels "Real Tigers" and "Spook Street," marking the show's journey through half of Mick Herron's eight-part book series (with a ninth novel in the works).
Douglas Henshall, who plays the role of River in the series, expressed his enthusiasm for continuing to portray the character and potentially adapting all eight of Herron's novels. He mentioned, "I mean, I want to see them—as a fan. I want to see all eight seasons, of course, and I think Mick’s writing another novel. And so, as a fan, I'd love to watch it."
Henshall also hinted at the exciting developments in River's character in season 3, keeping fans eager to see where the story will lead. While he hasn't read the books, he's genuinely excited about the potential direction of the series and the possibility of witnessing River's journey through to its conclusion.

What Will Slow Horses Season 3 Be About?
Season 3 of "Slow Horses" promises to bring us another thrilling adventure, even though the exact plot details are being kept under wraps. Based on the third novel in the Slough House series, "Real Tigers," we can make some educated guesses about what's in store.
While season 2 tied up some loose ends nicely, the agents at Slough House are far from idle and are eager for their next case in season 3. However, the shadow of agent Min Harper's tragic death in season 2 will undoubtedly loom over the team, affecting their dynamics.
In "Real Tigers," and presumably in Slow Horses season 3, the members of Slough House find themselves entangled in yet another criminal conspiracy, but this time, one of their own is the prime target. Standish is kidnapped by an enigmatic syndicate and held for ransom.
To secure Standish's release, Jackson, River, and the rest of the Slow Horses must embark on a daring mission to infiltrate MI5's headquarters and steal valuable intelligence for a high-stakes trade. Season 3 will pit the Slough House agents against their own organization, revealing a conspiracy that reaches from the upper echelons of MI5 all the way to Downing Street.
Who Is In Slow Horses Season 3’s Cast?
The third season of "Slow Horses" boasts an impressive ensemble cast, with the main trio leading the way: Gary Oldman as the disheveled and unconventional Jackson Lamb, Jack Lowden as the newest addition to Slough House, River Cartwright, and Kristin Scott Thomas as the formidable MI5 Director, Diana Taverner.
Saskia Reeves will reprise her role as Catherine Standish, a vital supporting character, and she'll be joined by Sope Dirisu, who will portray Sean Donovan, the former head of security at the British Embassy in Istanbul.
While not officially confirmed, many beloved characters from previous seasons are expected to make a return, including Rosalind Eleazar as Louisa Guy, Jonathan Pryce as David Cartwright, Freddie Fox as James "Spider" Webb, Dustin Demri-Burns as Min Harper, Aimée-Ffion Edwards as Shirley Dander, and Kadiff Kirwan as Marcus Longridge.
Christopher Chung, spotted in first-look images, is confirmed to reprise his role as Roddy Ho in Slow Horses season 3. With this star-studded cast, season 3 promises to be another gripping installment in the series that fans won't want to miss!
