‘Strike Back’ To Return For Season 6 In November On Sky 1
At the end of last year, we got the news that ‘Strike Back‘ would be striking back with a new season and new cast! Now Sky has announced the show will return in November 2017, and teases a little more info about the series.
The disavowed and disbanded Section 20 programme is thrown back into action when a mission to bring in a terrorist, ends in total disaster. Sergeant ‘Mac’ McAllister (Warren Brown – ‘Luther’) forms part of a new unit charged with one of the most important manhunts ever. And, if things weren’t looking worrying enough, they then uncover a huge and deadly conspiracy.
Joining ‘Mac’ will be Sergeant Samuel Wyatt (Daniel MacPherson – ‘The Shannara Chronicles’, ‘APB’, ‘The Bill’), a bar-room philosopher who works best alone and has no intention of being dragged into a team situation. Natalie Roberts (Roxanne McKee – ‘Game of Thrones’, ‘Hollyoaks’), who comes from a military family and excels at psychological profiles and seeking weaknesses in others, but she might be blinded to her own fault-lines. And Gracie Novin (Alin Sumarwata – ‘Neighbours’, ‘Home and Away’), a gear-head who is looking to make the step up. She is genuine, honest to the point of bluntness, and the heart and soul of the team.
Whilst I will miss Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and Scott (Sullivan Stapleton), this isn’t the first time ‘Stike Back’ has aired without the duo. Season 1 of the show starred Richard Armitage, who couldn’t continue due to his commitments in Middle Earth, which is when Stonebridge and Scott were introduced for Season 2. Warren Brown is a great choice to lead the show into a new era, so I’m looking forward to seeing what they do with it.
Sky haven’t yet released the exact air date for ‘Strike Back‘ Season 6, other than it will air in November 2017, but we’ll keep you updated when we hear more!
