TVLine Items: Strike Back Premiere Date, an Americans Return and More

Cinemax’s military drama Strike Back will launch its fourth and final season on Friday, July 31, at 10/9c, the network announced Monday.

Although Season 4 initially was slated to air last summer, production was delayed after star Sullivan Stapleton sustained a serious injury off set.

As previously reported, the show’s final run will follow Sgt. Damien Scott (Stapleton) and Sgt. Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) as they try to crack a missing-persons case in Bangkok, unveiling a massive terrorist plot in the process.

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

* Frank Langella will reprise his role as KGB handler Gabriel on The Americans‘ fourth season, FX announced Friday.

* In other FX news, the cabler has ordered an untitled comedy pilot starring Jenny Slate (Married) and Ari Graynor (Bad Teacher). Created by Gillian Robespierre and Elisabeth Holm — the team behind Slate’s much buzzed-about film Obvious Child — the project follows two new friends who embark on a cross-country road trip together.

* Azie Tesfai (aka Jane the Virgin‘s Nadine) will guest-star on the upcoming seventh season of Royal Pains, per The Hollywood Reporter. She will play Aubrey Wolfhouse, the host of an increasingly popular reality show, whose upbeat outlook will be tested.

* Holy Orange Is the New Black! Netflix has revealed the key art for Season 3 of its Taylor Schilling-led dramedy, and everything is going up in flames for Piper & Co. Check out the poster below:

    Strike Back deserves to end after four seasons. Hope Philip Winchester’s new series Endgame should get picked up as a series for NBC as does Sullivan Stapleton’s new series Blindspot.

    • Murica says:

      Why did it deserve to end? Strike Back could have easily lasted a couple more seasons.

      • Mr. Tran K says:

        Didn’t you read the article? Two words: PAY ATTENTION.

        • Murica says:

          What are you talking about, tran? Nothing in the article indicates that the show should have ended after four seasons. Strike Back is awesome and should have continued for at least a couple of seasons.

          You said: it deserves to end! I asked you: Why?

          You obviously don’t think the show is any good and that it deserves to end. I think this is complete nonsense and that the show is fantastic.

          You should read before you write. Stop with the capslock, are you 10?

          • Mr. Tran K says:

            You’ve been whining and complaining from the start Murica and told people before: I ALWAYS HATE COMPLAINERS. Don’t ever complain to me again or I’m going to go all Game of Thrones on you. BTW, I’m not 10 and you’re such a BULLY. Try not to come back to this website and another thing I hate is when people get ignored about the things I’ve said.

        • Murica says:

          HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! Whining and complaining about what? Who did you tell? You’re going to go all Games of Thrones on me? I’m a bully? You hate it when people get ignored about the things you’ve said? What are you even talking about? You’re either crazy or delusional, either way you should seek professional help!

    STRIKEBACK is by far the best show ever created! For a gun-guy like me with an affinity for spec ops type of scenarios, this show has everything! Their attention to detail is phenomenal! Love this show!!
