Cinemax has renewed its first primetime drama serial Strike Back for a 10-episode third season set to launch 2013, Deadline reports.
The third season will shoot in South Africa and Hungary, and will once again be produced by Cinemax/HBO, Left Bank and Sky, which will transmit the series in the UK.
Strike Back revolves around an unlikely pair of operatives in the stealth counter-terrorism unit Section 20, who are assigned high risk, priority missions around the globe.
Returning for season three will be exec producer Andy Harries, series producer Michael Casey and head of production Marigo Kehoe. Others returning for season 3 include director Michael Bassett and writers Simon Burke, James Dormer and Richard Zajdlic.
Cinemax has not yet confirmed which cast members will return in Season 3 “due to plot spoilers in upcoming episodes of season two.”
The second season climaxes October 12.
