Some familiar faces are returning to Strike Back. This week, Cinemax announced Sullivan Stapleton and Philip Winchester will guest on the TV series’ sixth season.
Stapleton and Winchester starred in seasons two through five of the UK action drama, which follows the secretive British Defence Intelligence branch Section 20. The season six cast includes Darren Brown, Daniel MacPherson, Roxanne McKee, and Alin Sumarwata.
For season six, Stapleton and Winchester will reprise their original Strike Back roles as Sgt. Damien Scott and Sgt. Michael Stonebridge, respectively. They will guest in two episodes of the Cinemax series, beginning on March 30th at 10 p.m. ET/PT and concluding with the season six finale on April 6th at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
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.
What do you think? Are you a fan of Strike Back? Are you glad both Stapleton and Winchester are returning?
