Cinemax Sets Strike Back's Delayed Final Run for 2015, Renews The Knick

Strike Back Final Season 2015

Cinemax is officially slotting Strike Back‘s delayed fourth and final season for sometime in 2015, the cabler disclosed on Thursday at the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour.

Typically the high-octane action-drama fires off its new episodes in August, but production on Season 4 was paused for six months when series star Sullivan Stapleton, who plays Sgt. Damien Scott, sustained a serious, injury off-set in February.

Stapleton needed the time to recuperate and return to the peak physical condition needed for the action- and stunt-heavy drama.

“Production … will be on hiatus to allow him time to recover,” the cabler said at the time in a statement. “We plan on resuming production in the fall.

In other news, Cinemax has renewed its upcoming period drama The Knick for Season 2, ahead of its Aug. 8 debut.

Set in downtown New York circa 1900, The Knick is centered on the Knickerbocker Hospital and the surgeons, nurses and staff who work there, pushing the bounds of medicine in a time of astonishingly high mortality rates and zero antibiotics. Academy Award and Emmy-winning director Steven Soderbergh helmed all 10 episodes of the first season.

Clive Owen headlines the series as Dr. John Thackery, a brilliant surgeon pioneering new methods in the field — despite his secret addiction to cocaine.

    Not many action stunt shows without CGI nowadays, the shows obviously too expensive to produce, I’ll miss it’s sardonic machoism.

    They always shorten the good shows! One of the few action pack, no commercial shows on cable. There are so many storylines, they could still explore!

    How could you replace a great show like Strikeback, which is based on terrorist activities our time & replace it with yet another medical show placed in the 1900’s!!? Dumb move!
