Strike Back is set to end. Again.
Cinemax announced on Wednesday that the action series — which originally ended in mid-2015, only to get “revived” in late 2016 — has been renewed for a seventh* and final season.
*Eighth season, by UK math.
The current season’s finale is set to air Friday, March 29.
“Strike Back established Cinemax as a destination for adrenalized, entertaining action series nearly a decade ago,” network programming chief Kary Antholis said in a statement. “It is with sincere gratitude for the service of all of the past and present members of Section 20 — both in front of and behind the camera — that we send the team off on one last mission to save the world from annihilation.”
Showrunner Jack Lothian added, “I am delighted we’re coming back for a final season. Strike Back is a show that’s always raised the bar for small-screen action, and we’re looking forward to doing that one last time. There are plenty of twists and turns ahead, but I can promise one thing – we’re going out with a bang.”
