Strike Back Revived at Cinemax, Sky


LOS ANGELES/LONDON: The action drama Strike Back is returning to Cinemax and Sky 1, revived with a brand-new cast.

The fifth season will feature new adventures created by the original team. The story is set in today’s modern world of political polarization, disenchantment, violent power struggles and fear. The cast includes Warren Brown (Luther), Daniel MacPherson (The Shannara Chronicles), Roxanne McKee (Game of Thrones) and Alin Sumarwata (Neighbours).

Adam MacDonald, the director of Sky 1, said: “We’re thrilled to be working with Cinemax again to deliver more edge-of-your-seat action adventure and this latest series of Strike Back is another welcome addition to Sky 1’s ever-growing collection of high quality, home-grown dramas. At such an interesting time in global politics, this series delivers a compelling take on world events and the murky world of international espionage.”

Executive producer Andy Harries said: “Strike Back is the show that took Left Bank Pictures onto the international stage and we are thrilled to be back with such an exciting cast and a world-class team of writers, directors and producers.  With a fanbase spread over 150 countries worldwide, Strike Back is television at its very best, where the military comes first! Our news stars have amazing physical skills which, combined with their military training, is going to make the show rock.”
