strike-back-cancelled-renewed-cinemaxAfter a day filled with announcements, today could not go by without more shows to add to the lists of cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012. And now Cinemax renews Strike Back for season three. The third season order is for ten episodes slated to air in 2013.

Locations will be in South Africa and Hungary. Even though Cinemax renewed Strike Back, it did not announce which cast members will come back as it stated that they couldn´t “due to plot spoilers in upcoming episodes of season two.

The show came back to good numbers for the cabler, as it marked a 35% growth over the first season average; although it´s in the thirties below Series premiere.

The show has been renewed for both its UK and US airings.  It is based on a novel of the same name by novelist and former Special Air Service (SAS) soldier Chris Ryan. The series follows the actions of Section 20, a secretive branch of the British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6), who operative several high risk, priority missions throughout the globe.
