Sky One has ordered a fourth series of its hit action series Strike Back, based on the book by Chris Ryan.
The first series, starring Richard Armitage as a special forces solider carrying out ‘black ops’, aired in 2010 to rave reviews. The third series, which stars Philip Winchester and Sullivan Stapleton, is currently airing.
The new ten-part series will be filmed South Africa and Hungary for transmission next year.
The new run will once again be a co-production between Sky and CINEMAX/HBO and will be produced by Left Bank Pictures.
The producers are withholding casting details to avoid spoilers for the current series.
Huw Kennair-Jones, Sky’s Commissioning Editor, Drama said:”We’re really excited to be welcoming Scott, Stonebridge and the Section 20 team back for another series of STRIKE BACK, and thrilled to be working with HBO/ CINEMAX again to give UK audiences another series of explosive, home grown action adventure.”
