Strike Back returns for final season

US cable network Cinemax/HBO is to produce a fourth and final season of action series Strike Back with the UK’s Left Bank Pictures and Sky.

The season’s 10 episodes – which in the UK will constitute the show’s fifth season since Left Bank and Sky made an initial season without Cinemax – will shoot in Asia and Europe and will screen on Cinemax in the US and Sky in the UK in 2014.

Returning for the hit show’s final run will be Left Bank’s Andy Harries as executive producer, series producer Michael Casey and head of production Marigo Kehoe. Sky’s Cameron Roach will executive produce. Michael J Bassett will once again serve as co-executive producer, writer and director and James Dormer as co-executive producer and writer.

HBO said that returning cast and additional crew will be announced later.

The third US season of Strike Back finished on Cinemax on October 18 and is currently available on the cable channel’s MaxGo and Max On Demand services.

After Strike Back’s initial season aired in the UK in 2010, Cinemax/HBO came in as coproduction partner and gave the series, about two stealth anti-terrorism operatives, its US debut in 2011.
