Cinemax‘s first primetime drama series Strike Back will come to an end next year. The pay cable network has ordered a 10-episode fourth and final season of the action drama, which will shoot in Asia and Europe and air in 2014. Cinemax/HBO will once again co-produce with partners Left Bank and Sky, which will air the series in the UK. Also returning are Left Bank’s Andy Harries and Sky’s Cameron Roach as executive producers, Michael J. Bassett as co-executive producer, writer and director and James Dormer as co-executive producer and writer, series producer Michael Casey, and head of production Marigo Kehoe. Season 3 of Strike Back, starring Philip Winchester and Sullivan Stapleton, wrapped its run on October 18. It was succeeded by the original British Strike Back series, which is currently airing on Cinemax as Strike Back: Origins. With its successful four-season run, Strike Back put Cinemax on the original programming map and ushered in such follow-up series as recent breakout Banshee.
