Action series, Strike Back (aka Strike Back: Project Dawn), featuring Philip Winchester and Aussie actor Sullivan Stapleton, was renewed for a second season last week by US Pay TV network Cinemax.
Both men are part of an elite counter-terrorism team.
The co-production between UK’s Sky and Cinemax will see 10 new episodes begin shooting in South Africa early next year.
Strike Back: Project Dawn, as it is known in the UK, is a second series to Strike Back which follows John Porter (Richard Armitage), a former British Special Forces soldier, who is drafted back into service by MI6.
Also renewed is MasterChef (US) for FOX, featuring Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot. All three judges will return for a third season.
Meanwhile NBC has ditched new Fall comedy show, Free Agents, featuring Hank Azaria.
“Thanks to NBC for giving us a shot, thanks to all who watched Free Agents, and thanks to all who worked on the show — we had so much fun!!” Azaria tweeted.
Lucky he has that Simpsons thing to fall back on?
