We’ve been following Strike Back since it debuted a couple months ago and so far, we like it. Apparently, so do enough other people, including the network, as Cinemax has decided to give it a second season.
The show was given a 10-episode order and is set to air next year. Filming will begin in South Africa in early 2012.
Season 1 stars Sullivan Stapleton and Philip Winchester, Amanda Mealing, Eva Birthistle, Jimi Mistry, Rhashan Stone, Michelle Lukes and Richard Armitage. It tells the story of a charismatic former U.S. Special Forces operative (Stapleton) who joins with a stealth British military unit when a resourceful international terrorist group plots a major attack.
In spite of the announcement of a second season, Cinemax is not confirming which cast members will be returning or if any new cast is joining the show. Their reason? “Plot spoilers in upcoming episodes.”
If you’re a fan of the show, guess that means you shouldn’t get too attached to any of the characters. Season one of Strike Back airs Friday nights at 10/9C on Cinemax.
