Slow Horses Plot and Cast
Slow Horses Season 2 will follow the plot of Dead Lions. Dickie Bow, a one-time low-level informant of Jackson Lamb’s, follows a mysterious character who he recognizes from the old days on a train and then a bus.
Bow ends up dead, apparently of natural causes, but Lamb knows something is up and uses his hopeless team to poke around in long-buried secrets from the Cold War. Being espionage secrets, they naturally don’t stay buried, and soon there’s a very real threat facing the present-day UK.
Talking about the cast, the lead members of the first season would come back to reprise their roles. This includes Jack Lowden as River Cartwright, Gary Oldman as Jackson Lamb, Saskia Reeves as Catherine Standish, Christopher Chung as Roddy Ho, and Dustin Demri-Burns as Min Harper. We would also get to see Rosalind Eleazar as Louisa Guy, Kristin Scott-Thomas as Diana Taverner, Jonathan Pryce as David Cartwright, Freddie Fox as “Spider” Webb and Samuel West as Peter Judd.
New members will also join the cast this season that includes Rade Šerbedžija as former Russian agent Nikolai Kaminsky. Further details are expected to be revealed soon.
