Cinemax announced today that Strike Back has been renewed for what will be the show's sixth season on the cable network. The action drama's fifth season - titled "Retribution" - is currently airing, with a finale set for next month on April 6.

The series is a collaboration between HBO/Cinemax and Sky in the UK. Today's renewal is actually for Season 7 overseas, as Cinemax did not begin airing the show until its second season, only to air the original first season years later as Strike Back: Origins.

Originally announced to end in 2015, Strike Back was revived just one year later for a new incarnation featuring an all-new cast. The disbanded Section program was restored to track down a notorious terrorist who escapes from prison.

Season 6 will continue to follow the adventures of the elite, multi-national, covert Section 20 team as it fights a far-reaching web of interconnected criminals and terrorists around the world. Look for a return in 2019.
