Slow Horses, inspired by the Slough House book series penned by British novelist Mick Herron, is gearing up to delve into the pages of Real Tigers for its upcoming season 3 after the two successful previous editions.
Both seasons of Slow Horses have received wide critical acclaim, with season 1 earning a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes and season 2 earning a 100%. Much of the praise has been heaped on the ensemble cast and the eschewing of usual spy thriller conventions by making the slow horses inept at their jobs. Slow Horses is based on the Slough House novels from author Mick Herron, with each season so far has been based on a successive book in the series. Both seasons 3 and 4 of Slow Horses have been confirmed and from speculation and reveals, season 3 should be as exciting as the last two.

Slow Horses Season 3 Plot:
We don’t know exactly what will happen in Season 3, but we can guess based on Mick Herron’s book Real Tigers. The agents at Slough House are about to start a new investigation, even though the last season ended very nicely. The story is more complicated because agent Min Harper’s death has left a lasting mark that will affect his coworkers.
In Real Tigers, and probably also in Season 3, people from Slough House get involved in a crime plot in which one of their own, Catherine Standish, is taken by an unknown group of criminals. The team has to figure out how to get into MI5’s headquarters and get valuable information for a high-stakes ransom exchange. The Slow Horses are working against their own command because of a plot that goes from the top of MI5 to Downing Street.
Season 3 promises a thrilling journey that will change the story from a dull one-sided story to an interesting conspiracy. Former MI5 agents who have settled down in Slough House must reevaluate their roles within MI5 in order to save one of their own and stop the plans of a rogue agent.
