‘Strike Back’ Season 6 Get’s UK premiere date Of Tuesday, 31st October At 9pm On Sky 1
Previously Sky 1 had said ‘Strike Back‘ would return for it’s 6th Season in November 2017… It seems they’re so eager for us to see it, they’ve (just!) slipped it into October, with a UK premiere date of Tuesday, 31st October at 9pm On Sky 1.
Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) are gone, and the Section 20 programme has been disavowed and disbanded. But when a mission to bring in a terrorist, ends in total disaster, there’s only covert team who can fix the mess. 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.
On top of revealing the air date, Sky has also uploaded this little video which gives us our first look at the new team in action.
We do love a bit of drama!

This isn’t the first time ‘Strike Back’ has aired without Scott & Stonebridge. Season 1 of the show starred Richard Armitage, who left and was replaced by the duo for Season 2. From the video above, I’d say the new cast are looking pretty solid too!
