Strike Back's fifth season is now underway with the season finale scheduled for April 6, 2018. Fan favorites Scott and Stonebridge will also be in that episode alongside the new cast. Section 20's adventures will not end with the April 6th finale as Cinemax is doubling down on the new cast with the announcement of a season six renewal. The announcement comes from HBO Miniseries and CINEMAX Programming president Kary Antholis.
“The rebirth of STRIKE BACK has reestablished CINEMAX as a destination for adrenalized, entertaining action series,” noted Antholis. “We are delighted to offer Section 20 the opportunity to continue saving the world from mayhem and destruction.”
Season five actors include Warren Brown, Daniel MacPherson, Roxanne McKee, Alin Sumarwata, Nina Sosanya, Don Hany, Trevor Eve and Katherine Kelly.
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 the series producer and Nuala O’Leary is the producer.
