Cinemax has greenlit action drama “Strike Back” for a sixth season, with an unconfirmed number of new episodes. The renewal comes before the current season finale, which concludes on Friday, April 6. “Strike Back” follows the explosive escapades of Section 20, an elite, multinational, covert special ops team, as it spans the globe fighting a vast web of interconnected criminal and terrorist activity.
“The rebirth of ‘Strike Back’ has reestablished Cinemax as a destination for adrenalized, entertaining action series,” noted Kary Antholis, president, HBO Miniseries and CimemaxP rogramming. “We are delighted to offer Section 20 the opportunity to continue saving the world from mayhem and destruction.”
The next season will mark Cinemax’s sixth, and UK co-producer Sky’s seventh, season in the “Strike Back” franchise. Cinemax began airing the series with Sky’s second season, and in 2013, presented Sky’s first season of the show as “Strike Back: Origins.”
“Strike back” is a Cinemax Presentation in association with Sky; a Left Bank Pictures Production. Andy Harries, Sharon Hughff, Jack Lothian and MJ Bassett are executive producers. Bill Shepherd is series producer and Nuala O’Leary is producer.
