Apple TV+ released the preview on Tuesday for the British spy show, which returns with the first two episodes of Season 3 on Nov. 29. A new episode premieres every Wednesday through Dec. 27.
“I need a team of good agents, but I just have the Slow Horses,” laments slovenly senior agent Jackson Lamb (Gary Oldman), who never misses a chance to crack wise, even when lives are on the line.
Later in the clip, River Cartwright (Jack Lowden) calls from a besieged warehouse to tell Lamb, “There are men outside with guns. Some backup might be handy.”
Lamb’s nonchalant reply, “Well, I’m busy.”
Responds a frustrated Cartwright, “OK, thanks, I’m sure the situation will resolve itself.”
Hacking expert Roddy Ho (Christopher Chung) should also know better than to expect praise from Lamb when he’s tapped for the mission. “It’s an honor to be selected for field work,” he tells his boss, whose simply says, “Shut up.”
Last but not least, Lamb appears to question how Cartwright handled a tight situation, telling his subordinate, “I’d have killed every one of them. If they threatened to kill you on the other hand, I’d buy them a beer and the bullets.”
But is there a chance Cartwright might graduate from Slough House and back to MI5 proper? He’s told by agency director Ingrid Tearney (Sophie Okonedo) that if he does well on this job, “You can wipe your slate clean.”
You can watch the trailer, which is scored to Kasabian’s 2004 track “Club Foot,” above.
