When Is Slow Horses Season 3 Coming Out?
Slow Horses Season 3 will come out in late 2023. This could be anytime from October to December. The release of the show will not be affected by the ongoing writers and actors strike going on in Hollywood as the series was shot in the U.K. It was also shot on time.
As far back as March 2023, news emerged that filming of season 3 of Slow Horses had concluded while production of season 4 had started. Given the time that has elapsed since then, there is no doubt that Season 3 of Slow Horses is ready for broadcast.
How Many Episodes Of Slow Horses Season 3 Will There Be?
Season 3 of Slow Horses will have at least six episodes. Each of the first two seasons of the show has had six episodes each, and this pattern is likely to continue for the first season. What’s more, Slow Horses is actually based on a series of thriller novels written by British novelist Mick Herron.
Season 1 was based on the first book in the series Slow Horses (2010), while Season 2 was based on Dead Lions (2013), the second book in the series. It has been confirmed that Season 3 will cover Herron’s third book, Real Tigers. Given such consistency, we can expect a similar number of episodes for Season 3 of Slow Horses as we got in Seasons 1 and 2.
How Many Seasons of Slow Horses Are There?
There are currently two seasons of Slow Horses and a total of 12 episodes. The first season had 6 episodes and ran from April 1 to April 29, 2022. The second season of Slow Horses equally had 6 episodes and originally aired from 2 December 2022 to 30 December 2022. Slow Horses has been renewed for Seasons 3 and 4, and as such, one is sure that there will be at least four seasons of the hit spy thriller, barring any unforeseen circumstances.
It is also possible that Slow Horses may have even more than four seasons. The book series upon which it is based has up to nine books at the last count. Therefore, if the show continues to resonate with fans, the producers won’t have any difficulty going the long haul. Luckily, the major stars of the show, including Gary Oldman, have indicated that they will be on the series as long as it runs.
