Apple TV+ today unveiled a first look at the upcoming fourth season of its widely acclaimed, BAFTA Award-winning espionage series ‘Slow Horses,’ starring Academy Award winner Gary Oldman.

Adapted from ‘Spook Street,’ the fourth novel in the CWA Gold Dagger Award-winning Mick Herron spy series ‘Slough House,’ season four will premiere globally on Wednesday, September 4 with the first two episodes, followed by one new episode weekly, every Wednesday through October 2, on Apple TV+.

The series is a darkly humorous espionage drama that follows a dysfunctional team of British intelligence agents who serve in a dumping ground department of MI5 known un-affectionately as Slough House. Season four opens with a bombing that detonates personal secrets, rocking the already unstable foundations of Slough House.
