President of HBO Miniseries and Cinemax Programming Kary Antholis announced today that the popular action series "Strike Back" is set to return to Cinemax in 2014 for a final 10-episode season.
The British TV show is based on the novel of the same name by former British Special Forces soldier turned author Chris Ryan, and follows the Section 20 top secret British intelligence arm as it executes mission after mission around the world.
Though the cast of next year's season four has yet to be announced, the series will again be produced by Cinemax/HBO along with partners Left Bank and Sky and will air in U.K. as well as the U.S. Season three of "Strike Back," was hailed by the Huffington Post as, "well made and damn fun," and by TV Guide as having, "blazed a new trail in hardcore pulp fiction."
Season 3 ended on October 18 and is now available on MaxGo and Max on demand. Cinemax has been stepping up its original programming, with season two of "Banshee" returning on January 10. The network is also home to Steven Soderbergh's period drama "The Knick," starring Clive Owen and currently in production.
