Cinemax renews Strike Back for seventh and final season
Cinemax has announced that the action spy drama Strike Back will come to a conclusion with the just ordered seventh and final season. The sixth season is set to conclude on Cinemax on March 29 at 10 p.m. EST.
“Strike Back established Cinemax as a destination for adrenalized, entertaining action series nearly a decade ago,” HBO Miniseries and Cinemax Programming president Kary Antholis said in a press release. “It is with sincere gratitude for the service of all of the past and present members of Section 20 – both in front of and behind the camera – that we send the team of on one last mission to save the world from annihilation.”
The series, showrun by Jack Lothian (Origin) and based on the novel of the same name from novelist and former Special Air Service soldier Chris Ryan, follows the the secretive branch of the British Defence Intelligence service, Section 20, and the covert, dangerous and often explosive global missions to bring down major criminal and terrorist threats.
“I am delighted we’re coming back for a final season,” Lothian said. “Strike Back is a show that’s always raised the bar for small-screen action, and we’re looking forward to doing that one last time. There are plenty of twists and turns ahead, but I can promise one thing – we’re going out with a bang.”
Sky One will return to co-produce the series alongside Cinemax, who have worked together since the second season after the first debuted on the British network in 2010, and the cast will feature the return of the revamp’s stars Daniel MacPherson (The Shannara Chronicles), Warren Brown (Luther), Roxanne McKee (Dominion), Alin Sumarwata (Neighbours) and Nina Sosanya (Good Omens).
