Streaming television fans, rejoice! Two major renewals were announced by both Apple TV+ and HBO Max for two of their biggest hit shows, which both received critical and commercial praise.
For Apple TV+, Slow Horses has been renewed for two more seasons, on top of the fact that its first two seasons were shot simultaneously! Based on the novel of the same name from Mick Herron, the Gary Oldman-led series, co-starring Jack Lowden and Kristin Scott Thomas was a major hit for Apple TV+, with its second season now premiering later this year. It was a risky gamble to order two seasons before the first one came on the streaming service, but it looks like it has more than paid off for Apple, who is now extremely confident that its next three seasons will be just as good as the first. The second season will follow the plot of Herron’s Dead Lions, while its third and fourth will be adapted from Real Tigers and Spook Street respectively. Be sure to look forward to Joey Magidson’s interview with Gary Oldman coming to Awards Radar very, very soon!
Meanwhile, HBO Max has renewed Our Flag Means Death for a second season. Created by David Jenkins, and starring Rhys Darby, Ewen Bremner, Joel Fry, Con O’Neill, and Taika Waititi, the series was a major hit for HBO Max, and was met with incredible reception from both critics and fans when it premiered.
In a statement, the series’ creator David Jenkins expressed that “We felt the show was special while we were making it, but fans’ open-armed embrace of the inhabitants of the Revenge makes heading into a second season all the more sweet. Thanks to our team at HBO Max, our invested executive producers, and our wildly enthusiastic audience for making another voyage to this world possible.”
