"STRIKE BACK" TO RETURN TO CINEMAX FOR SEASON FOUR IN 2014

NEW YORK, Oct. 28, 2013 - The hit action series STRIKE BACK will return to CINEMAX in 2014 for a fourth and final season of ten new episodes, which will shoot in Asia and Europe, it was announced today by Kary Antholis, president, HBO Miniseries and Cinemax Programming. CINEMAX/HBO will again produce the series with partners Left Bank and Sky, which will air the series in the U.K. Returning for season four will be Left Bank's Andy Harries as executive producer, series producer Michael Casey and head of production Marigo Kehoe. Sky's Cameron Roach will executive produce. Also returning are Michael J. Bassett as co-executive producer, writer and director and James Dormer as co-executive producer and writer.

Returning cast and additional crew will be announced at later date.

STRIKE BACK wrapped its third season on Oct. 18, and the entire season is now available on MaxGo and Max On Demand. New York's Daily News said that season three returned "with a bigger bang than ever" and redeyechicago.com noted, "Every season 'Strike Back' raises the stakes," while HitFix.com remarked that "the action scenes remain brutal and thrilling." TV Guide said the series "blazed a new trail in hardcore pulp fiction," the Huffington Post called it "well made and damn fun," and craveonline.com said it is "still the gold standard for TV action."

Debuting in 2011, STRIKE BACK was the first collaboration between CINEMAX/HBO and Sky. The first season introduced an unlikely pair of operatives in the stealth counterterrorism unit Section 20: Sgt. Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester), an exceptional British Special Forces (SBS) soldier, and the less-conventional Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton), a former U.S. Delta Force member. In the third season, the team tracked terrorist Al-Zuhari and his conspirators from the jungles of Colombia to Beirut to Russia to Eastern Europe in order to stop a major attack on Western-allied targets.

In addition to Philip Winchester ("Crusoe," "Camelot" and "Undrafted") and Sullivan Stapleton ("Animal Kingdom," "Gangster Squad," the upcoming "300: The Rise of an Empire"), season three stars of STRIKE BACK included Rhona Mitra ("Underworld: Rise of the Lycans"), Robson Green ("Wire in the Blood"), Michelle Lukes ("Alexander") and Milauna Jackson ("Blood Done Sign My Name"). Season three guest stars included Dougray Scott ("Desperate Housewives") and Zubin Varla ("Little Dorrit").

STRIKE BACK is a CINEMAX Presentation in association with British Sky Broadcasting Limited; a Left Bank Pictures Production; executive producers, Andy Harries for Left Bank and Cameron Roach for Sky; series producer, Michael Casey; co-executive producer, Michael J. Bassett.
