Slow Horses Season 4 Plot Hints :
The plot seems set to focus on River’s grandfather David Cartwright, who Lamb worked with in the past. When Cartwright forgets secrets are meant to be hidden, he becomes a target with his life at risk. River must decide whether to go rogue to protect his grandfather despite his flaws.
A bombing also rocks the foundations of Slough House, potentially exposing more personal secrets and testing loyalties. More details of the season 4 storyline are sure to emerge closer to its eventual premiere on Apple TV+.
But with much of the cast and creative team returning after highly praised prior seasons, fans can likely expect another strong delivery of Slow Horses’ signature mix of dry humor, complex characters, intrigue, and high stakes when season 4 drops.
