Strike Back is to return to Sky1 HD for a third season.

Ten new episodes of the action drama will begin shooting in South Africa in early 2012 and will air later in the year.

The show's second run - starring Philip Winchester, Sullivan Stapleton and Amanda Mealing - is currently airing on Sky1 and Cinemax.

The third season will once again be co-produced by Sky, Cinemax/HBO and Left Bank Pictures.

"Strike Back has proved to be an incredibly successful brand for Sky1 HD, and our collaboration with HBO/Cinemax made the scale and ambition of the second season even more exciting," said Anne Mensah, Sky's Head of Drama.

"The third season is shaping up to be even stronger. We want it to be the most high-octane, action-packed drama on British television."

"We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Left Bank and Sky on Strike Back," added Kary Antholis, president of HBO Miniseries. "The next season promises much more action, suspense and compelling drama."

The second season of Strike Back concludes on Sunday, October 23.
