Separately, Variety has revealed that "Peaky Blinders" star Aimee-Ffion Edwards, and Kadiff Kirwan from "This is Going to Hurt," are in the cast for the second season.

"Slow Horses" stars Gary Oldman and Kristin Scott Thomas. It's dramatized from Herron's novel by Will Smith, Morwenna Banks, Jonny Stockwood, and Mark Denton

The drama is directed by James Hawes, and features Mick Jagger's first-ever TV theme, "Strange Game," co-written with series composer Daniel Pemberton.

No streaming date for the second season has been announced.
