US action series Strike Back, has confirmed one more season, a seventh for Pay TV ntwork Cinemax.
Including the original UK season, it will be an eighth season overall.
The series about a covert special ops team was originally commissioned by UK broadcaster SKY in 2010 with Richard Armitage and Andrew Lincoln.
HBO-owned Cinemax joined in season two starring Philip Winchester and Aussie Sullivan Stapleton, as their first primetime drama series. It continued with subsequent seasons and annual breaks, with a new cast in 2017 including Daniel MacPherson.
“Strike Back established Cinemax as a destination for adrenalised, entertaining action series nearly a decade ago,” said Kary Antholis, president, HBO Miniseries and Cinemax Programming. “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 on one last mission to save the world from annihilation.”
“I am delighted we’re coming back for a final season,” said showrunner Jack Lothan. “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.”
It airs in Australia on FOX Showcase.
