The second season of the British spy series Slow Horses will premiere on Apple TV+ during the holiday season. In the first season, formerly disgraced MI5 agents who were sent to Slough House for a doomed career reinvented themselves and demonstrated their worth as spies.
As long-buried Cold War secrets resurface and hint at a catastrophe that could engulf the United Kingdom, the team is reassembling to combat yet another menace. The series is based on The Slough House book series by British author Mick Herron. The first season was adapted from the first book Slow Horses, while the second season is based on the 2013 sequel to the same series, named Dead Lion.
Soon after the debut of the first season in April 2022, Slow Horses was given the go-light for a second season in June 2022.
If you have watched and enjoyed the first season of Slow Horses, you are likely eagerly anticipating the second season as well. And if you haven’t, you may immediately watch the previous season on Apple TV+. In the meantime, check out the Season 2 release date, plot, and trailer, as well as everything else we know thus far.

Slow Horses Season 2 Trailer
Slow Horses Season 2 Plot
If we were to summarise the plot of the second season of Slow Horses, it would be Cartwright’s voiceover saying “more people are going to die,” which is also the central message of the trailer published in October. This scary remark is sufficient to indicate that the upcoming season of the gripping spy series will have more violence and killings.
The narrative of the second season retains the flavor and atmosphere of the first season. Once again, there is high-octane action, dramatic drama, and the suspense of an adversary plot to destroy the globe, as well as the dark, understated humor that is sort of a characteristic of old man Lamb, which has not yet rubbed off on his squad. Despite being shamed by their agency and country, they are united in their desire to salvage the day and prove their worth to MI5.
The teaser also hints that the plot of Slow Horses Season 2 contains high-level treason, and it may be difficult for the Slough House team to solve it and confront it because their careers and lives are at stake.
When the series premiered in April 2022, we predicted that this contemporary spy thriller series had potential, and the trailer for the second season confirms us right. If the advertisements are any indication of how the new season will unfold, then you can rest assured that it will be a thrilling ride.

Slow Horses Season 2 About
Season 2 of Slow Horses begins where Season 1 left off. The first season concluded with an explosive conclusion, as Lamb and his team were finally able to restore their reputation as good agents and attract the attention of their superiors at MI5. As is his inclination, Jackson Lamb is content to return to his previous repetitive routine and encourage his other agents to do the same.
However, it appears that trouble has a knack for infiltrating Slough House and stirring things up once more. Even the agents have experienced the thrill of completing challenging assignments, and they can no longer sit idle.
When long-lost Cold War secrets are rediscovered and a team of Russian sleeper agents is reactivated, the residents of Slough House foresee an imminent threat to London and possibly the entire world. Now, they must regain their composure and race against time to prevent a huge catastrophe.
