Although the Strike Back TV show was originally cancelled in 2015 after five seasons, now Cinemax and Sky have revived the action-adventure series for a sixth installment with a new cast. Can it bring back the old fans and attract new ones? Will Strike Back be cancelled or renewed for season seven? Stay tuned.
A spy drama, Strike Back season six stars Warren Brown, Daniel MacPherson, Roxanne McKee, and Alin Sumarwata. The Cinemax cast also includes Nina Sosanya, Katherine Kelly, and Trevor Eve. Although once disbanded, Section 20 is restored to track down a dangerous terrorist who has escaped from prison. As the team travels through Europe and the Middle East, they discover a lethal conspiracy which endangers them all and could change everything. **Update below.
Note: This is considered the sixth season in the UK where the series originates. Cinemax picked up the show starting with season two in 2011. Then, in 2013, they went back and aired the first season of six episodes as a special mini-series called Origins.
