Slow Horses fans, assemble: season 3 of the spy thriller is upon us, launching Gary Oldman, Jack Lowden and the rest of the show's cast back onto our screens.


Based on the Slough House series of books by author Mick Herron, the espionage drama revolves around a dysfunctional team of British intelligence agents headed up by Jackson Lamb (Oldman).

Season 3 sees Slough House pulled into a conspiracy which threatens to bring down the entirety of MI5, and guest stars Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù in a key role as Sean Donovan.

The new instalment also sees the outcast agents racing to save one of their own after Catherine Standish (Saskia Reeves) is kidnapped, with plenty of chaos ensuing.
