PHILIPPINES, 4 MARCH 2019 – CINEMAX has renewed the action series STRIKE BACK for a seventh and final season, it was announced today by Kary Antholis, president, HBO Miniseries and CINEMAX Programming. STRIKE BACK season 6 is currently airing with new episodes debuting, same time as the U.S., every Saturday at 11am with a same day encore at 10pm, on CINEMAX. The sixth-season finale is scheduled for Saturday, 30 March. The show 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.
“STRIKE BACK established CINEMAX as a destination for adrenalized, entertaining action series nearly a decade ago,” noted Antholis. “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 of on one last mission to save the world from annihilation.”
Showrunner Jack Lothian adds, “I am delighted we’re coming back for a final season. 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.”
Season six actors include Warren Brown, Daniel MacPherson, Alin Sumarwata, Jamie Bamber, Yasemin Kay Allen and Varada Sethu. Among critical praise for the current season, FanSided noted, “Bamber and Allen light a new fire under the series, and Brown, MacPherson and Sumarwata are even better than they were last year.” ScreenRant lauded the series’ iconic explosiveness, commending this season’s “crazy stunts” and “truly technically impressive action sequences.”
STRIKE BACK is a CINEMAX Presentation in association with Sky; a Left Bank Pictures Production; executive produced by Andy Harries, Sharon Hughff, Jack Lothian and Richard Burrell; producer, Nuala O’Leary.
