Cinemax delays “Strike Back‘s” fourth and final season, the network revealed Thursday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.
The action series will air its final sometime in 2015, due to an injury off-set. Production on the final season have been pushed back since actor Sullivan Stapleton, who plays Sgt. Damien Scott, sustained a serious, injury off-set in February.
“Production … will be on hiatus to allow him time to recover,” the cabler said at the time in a statement. “We plan on resuming production in the fall.”
In other Cinemax’s news, the network has picked up a ten-episode second season of “The Knick” ahead of the series debut on August 8.
Set in downtown New York circa 1900, “The Knick” follows Knickerbocker Hospital’s surgeons, nurses and staff who push the bounds of medicine in the time of astonishingly high mortality rates and zero antibotics.
“The Knick” stars Clive Owen, Andre Holland, Eve Hewson, Juliet Rylance, Jeremy Bobb and Michael Angarano.
