Gary Oldman: ‘Slow Horses Season 2 Explores Old Scores and Old Wounds’


Gary Oldman will reprise his role as grumpy MI5 agent Jackson Lamb for Season 2 of Slow Horses.

The spy thriller based on Mick Heron’s series of novels is set to return to Apple TV+ on Friday, December 2 – and it looks like the past will come back to haunt the leader of Slough House, aka Where Denied Services Go to die spoke with Oldman ahead of the release of Season 2 to discuss what the new episodes have in store for his character.

When asked if it’s fair to say season 2 features a more personal story for Lamb, the Darkest Hour actor said: “Yes, it’s fair to say – the so-called natural death of Dickie Bow, which brings up a lot of the past for Lamb and from the beginning he does suspect that there is more to him than meets the eye and believes that he has been murdered, [so] he recruits his, you know, his gang of losers and misfits [to investigate].

“Dickie is from that Cold War era and Lamb knew him, if not worked with him directly. He knew him from that era. It’s like that kind of marine mentality, right? You know, ‘We never leave a man behind, anything like that. He is very protective and loyal in that sense.

He added: “So yes, it is [more personal] – is indeed literally the past […] it sleeps for years and then somehow bubbles up and comes to the surface. It really brings up old scores and old wounds.”
