Cinemax Orders More Strike Back

If you're a fan of things blowing up, good news! Cinemax has renewed its action series Strike Back for a third season. The season (technically the show's fourth, but only the third for Cinemax) will consist of 10 episodes, film in South Africa and Hungary, and feature 20,000 pounds of testosterone. Once again, it will be a co-production between Cinemax, which started chipping in on the series after the first six-episode miniseries, and British network Sky.

Strike Back is one of those under-the-radar shows that I've heard good things about. It's about a pair of British MI6 agents who travel around the globe saving the world and putting bullets in bad guys. Philip Winchester and Sullivan Stapleton star.

I've heard many good things about it, but a lack of Cinemax in my house and an already full plate of television has kept me from jumping in. Perhaps now's the time to get started on this? Perhaps some of you out there who are familiar with the show can recommend it?

Here's a trailer for Season 2, currently airing on Cinemax on Fridays at 10pm.
