Fans of Cinemax‘s Strike Back TV show will have to wait awhile longer for the fifth and final season. The cable channel has revealed that the new episodes won’t start airing until sometime in 2015.
Production on the final season’s 10 episodes had to be put on hold after star Sullivan Stapleton — Sgt. Damien Scott on the show — sustained a serious off-set injury in February.
Stapleton had pre-shot some Strike Back scenes to allow him to promote his film 300: Rise Of An Empire but still had more to do. Production was shut down in March and was expected to resume this summer.
What do you think? Are you a fan of the Strike Back series? Are you looking forward to the final season? Do you think it should be ending?
I was no disappointed to learn that Strike Back was cancelled. I can think of a lot of shows on Cinemax to cancel and Strike Back is certainly not one of them. Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton), you two made your characters come to life in every episode. I thank the writers, directors and producers for all your hard work and ALL the other actors/actresses that were part of the show. I enjoyed the many of the countries where Strike Back filmed. All good things do come to an end. I am pleased to see you… Read more »
I adore Strikeback and am sorry to see it end. It could have continued for years. I am glad to see that Phillip Winchester and Sullivan Stapleton both have new series coming up. I just liked their camaraderie on Strikeback and I will miss Michael and Damien and the rest of Section 20.
I would love to see it continue it is a fun action packed show whatsa say cinemax MORE!!
Strike Back is a great series, lots of action and a good plot. But if the writers say it should end that is bad. But if the writers have run out of ideas, then end it while it is still good. I hate it when series keep running on a bad plot.
I would guess this show shows ending because of Sullivan Stapleton, and his new-ish “fame”
(300: rise of an empire was pure forgettable crap BTW) but lets just hope this last season at least goes out with a bang (huge explosion) not a whimper.
Strike back is a great show – should not be cancelled!
Awesome show!!! Please do not cancel. My fav show on TV!
Don’t cancel Strike Back !!!!!!! Great show.
No question the first 2 seasons were much, much better than the last two. The last 2 seasons’ scripts and action seemed so much more fabricated and less authentic than the first two. I was really hoping the writing and action would come back into line, but I guess not.
probably ending before the writers lose creative license and show be comes a husk of it’s former self. Don’t get me wrong ill Ride or Die i would rather it just end ******* AWESOME than lame…
Strike Back us a great show. I wish I had found it sooner, had to ho back and watch grist season. Really bad idea to cancel this try promoting it more if it’s not making enough money.
I love Strike Back…and think that the theme song is absolutely the best. The actors and the acting; the story and the story lines ; these are the best. I really believe that this type of covert operations group would be so great in real life!! Clear up a lot of problems this world now faces…yep, it would!! It is going to be such a long, long wait to see new episodes.
I love the show and don’t see why it is ending. The whole cast is fabulous…
It should continue as there are too many like minded tv shows coming to an early end.
Like another tv show The Unit with what’s happening all over the world and use of special forces highlighting their capabilities.
