Will Strike Back be back for another mission? Recently, stars Philip Winchester and Sullivan Stapleton spoke with TVInsider about the future of the Cinemax TV show.
Winchester and Stapleton play Michael Stonebridge and Damien Scott on the action drama, follows the secretive British Defence Intelligence branch Section 20. The season six cast includes Warren Brown, Daniel MacPherson, Roxanne McKee, and Alin Sumarwata.
Winchester and Stapleton left Strike Back after season five but will return for this season’s final two episodes beginning March 30th. But what about the future? Would Winchester and Stapleton return for a seventh season? Winchester says he’s in if Stapleton is:
Winchester: It would all depend on Sully. I don’t think we can capture the lightning in a bottle that we had without each other. He’s my buddy. If he was on board, and there was an offer, we’d make it work.
Stapleton: I’m hoping Stonebridge and Scott show up on a lot more missions. [Laughs]”
Cinemax has yet to announced a season seven renewal for Strike Back. The odds seem unlikely since ratings for this season have been low. So far, season six is averaging a .02 rating in the 18-49 demo and only 119,000 viewers.
What do you think? Do you watch Strike Back? Would you watch a seventh season if Winchester and Stapleton returned full time?
