If you have been eager to learn about the future of Strike, know that Strike: Lethal White is coming to BBC One!
While this has long been the subject of speculation, today the network did finally confirm the news that you’re going to have a chance to see the latest book in the Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling) series adapted in television form. There will be four more episodes to come of the series, and with that, we are also going to see Holliday Grainger and Tom Burke return as the main characters of Robin and Strike. This is a smart, thoroughly entertaining crime series with a lot of emotional complexity.
Here is what Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, had to say in a statement today:
“We are delighted to announce that the Strike series will return to BBC One with Lethal White. J. K. Rowling, once more in the guise of Robert Galbraith, has delivered another brilliant, knotty and original crime story. We are honoured to be working with Jo and once more with Holliday and Tom as Robin and Strike, to bring this hit series back to BBC One.”
If there is one part of this story that is a bummer at the moment, it is the rather-uncertain status of the show’s future over at Cinemax. According to a new report over at Deadline, the network has yet to pick up the series (which aired under the name C.B. Strike) for any additional episodes. We hope that this is something that will happen, though we almost wouldn’t be mad if there was a way for the series to shift over to a network that can give it a little bit more exposure. At the moment, we’re not altogether sure that many viewers in America know that the series exists.
