STRIKE BACK Season 2 Announced

STRIKE BACK (Cinemax) Episode 7 (3)
It’s official, Cinemax’s new hit action series STRIKE BACK will return to for a second season of ten new episodes in 2012. The new episodes will begin shooting in South Africa in early 2012 and air later in the year.

Currently airing on Fridays at 10pm on Cinemax, Strike Back will conclude its first season on October 21st. Interestingly, due to plot spoilers in upcoming episodes, the cast of season two will be announced at a later date.

CINEMAX/HBO will again produce the series with partners Left Bank and Sky, who will air the series in the U.K. The series marks the first time the two broadcasters have co-produced an original series together.

The current season of Strike Back tells the suspenseful story of a charismatic former U.S. Special Forces operative who joins with a stealth British military unit when a resourceful international terrorist group plots a major attack. Their covert efforts are never publicly acknowledged, their leads are few, the choices are difficult and results often come at a steep cost.

The stars of season one of the series include Sullivan Stapleton (“Animal Kingdom,” upcoming “Gangster Squad”) and Philip Winchester (“Crusoe,” “Camelot”), with Amanda Mealing (“Holby City”), Eva Birthistle (“Silent Witness”), Jimi Mistry (“Blood Diamond”), Rhashan Stone (“Episodes”), Michelle Lukes (“Alexander”) and Richard Armitage (“The Hobbit”).

Who’s excited to know we’ll be getting of Strike Back? I’m personally hooked, are you?
