SKY 1’s action drama Strike Back has been renewed for a fourth and final season.

A partnership between Cinemax/HBO and Sky, the show has only recently begun its third season in the UK.

But it has now been announced that the fourth season will be its last and that the show will conclude its run with 10 new episodes set for 2014.

The current incarnation follows Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) on various missions around the globe in search of terrorist organisations.

It has yet to be announced who will return for the final series.

Strike Back began life as a six-episode series starring Richard Armitrage and Andrew Lincoln before bringing in Winchester and Stapleton for the second series.

Armitage has since gone onto Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit movies, while Lincoln now headlines AMC’s The Walking Dead.
