A new iteration of Section 20 will Strike Back in February, it was announced by Cinemax on Monday.
Season 5 of the action-drama — which now stars Warren Brown (Luther), Daniel MacPherson (The Shannara Chronicles), Roxanne McKee (Dominion) and Alin Sumarwata (Neighbours) — will premiere Friday, Feb. 2.
Rellik, an original six-part thriller starring Richard Dormer (Game Of Thrones) as an obsessive and disfigured UK police detective and Jodi Balfour (Quarry) as his intense partner, is set to arrive on Friday, April 13.
Cinemax also set a June timetable for the premieres of C.B. Strike, which is based on the best-selling crime novels written by Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith and stars Tom Burke (The Musketeers) as war veteran turned private detective, while Season 2 of Outcast, which continues the suspenseful mystery of what lies behind the town of Rome’s supernatural manifestations, is due in July.

That’s absurd for Outcast. The 2nd season finale aired in the UK on June 5 this year and we’re getting it over a year later.
That is normal for the rest of the world. Where I life, until a few years ago you had to wait
at least a year. Now you have to wait at least 6 month.
Why the hell did they cancel Strikeback in the first place? Winchester and Stapleton were perfect, sigh.
So they could go all PC and ruin it
I was surprised to see Strike Back renewed without Sully and Philip. Nevertheless, I’m super excited to check out the reboot. Strike is AMAZING!
Why so long for Outcast? Overseas the show aired its second season finale in June. I read online that the network is rebranding but this wait time is ridiculous.
A new season of Strike Back Hollyoaks/Neighbours season. Interesting!
How do I get copy of the first 4 seasons?
Netflix has them or you might try your local Library. If you’re looking to buy I’ve seen them on ebay and at stores like Walmart, etc. If you haven’t watched you’re in for a treat. Awesome show.
Also, this is really going to be season 6 (which is what the UK is calling it). There was the original Richard Armitage/Andrew Lincoln season 1 (later aired in the US as Strike Back Origins) then seasons 2-5 with Winchester/Stapleton which Cinemax called season 1-4. I don’t believe they ever released Origins on disc here.
Yeah, I remember the seasons being messed up depending on what website you looked at. Drove me nuts when I was looking for it.
WRONG. This will be season SIX for Strike Back… NOT number 5. Why do you idiots keep getting this wrong?
Cant believe they turned Strike back into an absurd chick flick. Ruined with PC fantasy
Well, as avid fans of the Strike Back series From 1 to 5, and keeping an open mind about Philip Wichester and Sullivan Stapleton not being around for this season…..holy craapp…
There’s more holes in episode 1’s opening pitch, than a second hand Kevlar vest on sale at a Kandahar street market.
Jeeeezzz..the acting.is wooden, the continuity is appalling the attempt at familiarity to have a “Brit and a Yank” pal up is cheesey at best, the throwing together of the “female element” is rushed and meaningless..its a poor remake spun to appear as a sequel, and even the baddies are lacking conviction or intensity.
This is what happens when a winning franchise has an excellent run, very believable on screen role play, excellent methodology, great popularity and a loyal fanbase..gets the bug to seemingly give what the fans want, but change the recipe completely.
It hasn’t worked…
I felt myself getting frustrated and almost anoid that it has been done so badly.
What a shame, and what a lost opportunity to continue the legacy of Scott and Stonebridge!
I hope they don’t lower themselves to take up a cameo role
It won’t be better. Because the guys were Sullivan and Winchester. You can’t get better than them.
