Cinemax’s ‘Strike Back’ Renewed For Third Season
By NELLIE ANDREEVA | Wednesday October 3, 2012 @ 8:45am PDT
Nellie Andreeva

Strike Back RenewedCinemax has renewed its first primetime drama series Strike Back for a third season with a 10-episode order for a 2013 premiere. The third season, which will shoot in South Africa and Hungary, will once again be produced by Cinemax/HBO, Left Bank and Sky, which will air the series in the U.K. Returning for season three will be Left Bank’s Andy Harries as executive producer, series producer Michael Casey and head of production Marigo Kehoe. Others returning for season three include director Michael Bassett and writers Simon Burke, James Dormer and Richard Zajdlic. As it did with the second-season renewal announcement, Cinemax would not confirm which cast members will continue in Season 3 “due to plot spoilers in upcoming episodes of season two.”

The Strike Back renewal comes two weeks before the premiere of Cinemax’s second original primetime drama, Hunted. It will be followed by Banshee in 2013.

The second season premiere of Strike Back in August drew 390,000 viewers. That was down 31% from the series’ launch last August though 35% above the Season 1 average (289,000). Debuting in 2011, the series was the first collaboration between Cinemax/HBO and Sky. It centers on an unlikely pair of operatives in the stealth counterterrorism unit Section 20: Sgt. Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester), an exceptional British Special Forces (SBS) soldier, and the less-conventional Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton), a former U.S. Delta Force member. The second season, which will end its run Oct. 12, co-stars Rhashan Stone and Michelle Lukes.

“Strike Back” picked up for third season

The Cinemax action drama “Strike Back” has been renewed for a 10-episode third season, according to a news release.

The series is scheduled to shoot in South Africa and Hungary and will again be produced by Cinemax/HBO and partners Left Bank and Sky, who will air the show in the U.K.

Left Bank’s Andy Harries returns as executive producer, along with Michael Casey serving as series producer and Marigo Kehoe serving as head of production.

Director Michael Bassett and writers Simon Burke, James Dormer and Richard Zajdlic will also be back for the third season.

Additional directors and writers will be announced pending confirmation.

Due to plot spoilers in upcoming episodes of the second season, the Season Three cast will be revealed at a later date.

“Strike Back’s” confidential consultants who work in the field of counterterrorism will also be returning. These experts are resources for story lines, lingo, procedure, accuracy, character development and regional issues, as well as training in battle tactics, weapons and fighting, since the lead actors do virtually all of their own stunts.

Details on “Strike Back,” provided by Cinemax, are as follows:

Debuting in 2011, “Strike Back” was the first collaboration between Cinemax/HBO and Sky. The first season introduced an unlikely pair of operatives in the stealth counterterrorism unit Section 20: Sgt. Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester), an exceptional British Special Forces (SBS) soldier, and the less-conventional Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton), a former U.S. Delta Force member.

In the second season, currently debuting new episodes Fridays at 9 p.m. and concluding its run Oct. 12, the team tracks nuclear triggers stolen by a powerful businessman with dangerous geo-political ambitions, while the two lead characters face personal challenges and contend with the pressures of their high-stress work.

In addition to Philip Winchester (“Crusoe,” “Camelot”) and Sullivan Stapleton (“Animal Kingdom,” the upcoming “Gangster Squad,” “300: The Battle for Artemesia”), season two stars of “Strike Back” include Rhashan Stone (“Episodes”) and Michelle Lukes (“Alexander”).

Season two guest stars include Rhona Mitra (“Underworld: Rise of the Lycans”), Charles Dance (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”), Vincent Regan (“Snow White and the Huntsman”), Liam Garrigan (“Pillars of the Earth”) and Shane Taylor (“Band of Brothers”).

'Strike Back' renewed for 3rd season

Philip Winchester and Sullivan Stapleton in "Strike Back." (Cinemax / October 3, 2012)

By Curt Wagner, @ShowPatrol RedEye

10:58 a.m. CDT, October 3, 2012

"Strike Back" will return for a third season next year, Cinemax announced Wednesday. The network will produce 10 episodes of the action drama starring Philip Winchester and Sullivan Stapleton as two highly trained special ops soldiers working for a British counterterrorism unit called Section 20.

The hit series, currently in its second season airing news episodes at 9 p.m. CT Fridays, will once again film in South Africa and Hungary. Michael Bassett will return to direct a block of episodes. Writers Simon Burke, James Dormer and Richard Zajdlic also have signed on.

Any regular reader of this blog knows I'm a huge fan of the series, which mixes pulse-pounding action with a look at real-world events and a study of the emotional toll workingas a counterterrorism agent has on the soldiers. I'm looking forward to more seasons.

Read the full release from Cinemax below.

The Emmy-nominated series STRIKE BACK will return to CINEMAX in 2013 for a third season of ten new episodes, which will shoot in South Africa and Hungary. CINEMAX/HBO will again produce the series with partners Left Bank and Sky, who will air the series in the U.K. Returning for season three will be Left Bank's Andy Harries as executive producer, series producer Michael Casey and head of production Marigo Kehoe. Sky's Huw Kennair-Jones will executive produce.

Others returning for season three include director Michael Bassett ("Silent Hill: Revelation 3D") and writers Simon Burke ("Persuasion"), James Dormer ("MI-5") and Richard Zajdlic ("EastEnders"). Additional directors and writers will be announced as they are confirmed. Due to plot spoilers in upcoming episodes of season two, the cast of season three will be announced at a later date as well.

Also returning to the drama series for next season are the show's confidential consultants, who work in the field of counterterrorism. Their expertise is a resource for story, lingo, procedure, accuracy, character development and regional issues, providing a look inside the highly secretive black ops world. They also train the cast in battle tactics, weapons and fighting, as the lead actors do most of their own stunts.

Debuting in 2011, STRIKE BACK was the first collaboration between CINEMAX/HBO and Sky. The first season introduced an unlikely pair of operatives in the stealth counterterrorism unit Section 20: Sgt. Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester), an exceptional British Special Forces (SBS) soldier, and the less-conventional Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton), a former U.S. Delta Force member. In the second season, currently debuting new episodes Fridays at 10:00 p.m. (ET/PT) and concluding its run Oct. 12, the team tracks nuclear triggers stolen by a powerful businessman with dangerous geopolitical ambitions, while the two lead characters face personal challenges and contend with the pressures of their high-stress work.

In addition to Philip Winchester ("Crusoe," "Camelot") and Sullivan Stapleton ("Animal Kingdom," the upcoming "Gangster Squad," "300: The Battle for Artemesia"), season two stars of STRIKE BACK include Rhashan Stone ("Episodes") and Michelle Lukes ("Alexander"). Season two guest stars include Rhona Mitra ("Underworld: Rise of the Lycans"), Charles Dance (HBO's "Game of Thrones"), Vincent Regan ("Snow White and the Huntsman"), Liam Garrigan ("Pillars of the Earth") and Shane Taylor ("Band of Brothers").

The Los Angeles Times said the show "shoots high with plenty of action and thrills and a simmering bromance that's fun to watch," while New York's Daily News hailed STRIKE BACK as "appointment television for the next 10 weeks" and the Washington Post described it as a "stylish and addictive new counterterrorism series."

Recently nominated for an Emmy in the category of Outstanding Main Title Design, STRIKE BACK was the first original primetime series on CINEMAX in more than 15 years. The next series to debut will be "Hunted," launching Oct. 19, starring Golden Globe nominee Melissa George ("In Treatment," "30 Days of Night") and created and executive produced by Frank Spotnitz ("The X-Files"), followed in Jan. 2013 by "Banshee," executive produced by Alan Ball (HBO's "True Blood") and Greg Yaitanes ("House").
