Sky1’s ‘Strike Back’ to return for Series 3 in 2012

Posted Filed under

Ten new episodes will begin filming in South Africa in early 2012. The cast for Series 3 will be announced at a later date to avoid giving spoilers for Series 2, which concludes later this month.

Andy Harries, Executive Producer, commented: “We couldn’t be more excited to be sending our Strike Back operatives back out into the field for round three. The co-production with Sky and HBO/Cinemax has brought an outstanding scale to Strike Back which is rarely attempted on British television.”

Anne Mensah, Sky’s Head of Drama, added: “Strike Back has proved to be an incredibly successful brand for Sky1 HD… The third season is shaping up to be even stronger. We want it to be the most high-octane, action packed drama on British television.”

Conceived from the novels by ex-SAS soldier Chris Ryan,  Series 2 of Strike Back stars American actor Philip Winchester as Section 20 officer Michael Stonebridge and Australian actor Sullivan Stapleton as former US Special Forces operative Damien Scott.
