Cinemax announced this week that "Strike Back" will return for a second season of 10 episodes in 2012 and that the series will also return to Sky in the UK.
The action drama will begin production in South Africa in early 2012.
There's at least some confusion here, because the first season of "Strike Back" on Cinemax was the show's second season overall and it's impossible for Cinemax to announce the returning cast for the next season of "Strike Back" "due to plot spoilers in upcoming episodes."
The currently airing season of "Strike Back" stars Sullivan Stapleton and Philip Wincester and has included a slew of high-profile guest stars including Liam Cunningham, Iain Glen and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
While Cinemax couldn't announce returning stars, the cable network said that directors Bill Eagles, Paul Wilmshurst and Tony Saint will be back.
