Before Andrew Lincoln fought zombies in "The Walking Dead," he was fighting terrorists as the leader of the British counter-terrorism unit Section 20. Lincoln starred alongside Richard Armitage in "Chris Ryan's Strike Back," which aired in Britain in 2010 on Sky and led to the "Strike Back" currently airing its third season on Cinemax. Americans will finally get to see that original six-episode series that my British Twitter followers always bring up when Cinemax presents it as "Strike Back Origins" beginning at 9 p.m. CT Oct. 25, a week after the Season 3 finale.

Cinemax confirmed the news after Deadline broke the story Wednesday. The nature of the injury is being kept private.

After viewing two episodes of Cinemax's new spy thriller, "Hunted," I sat down one recent Saturday intending to watch the third. Several hours later, I had finished the season's eighth and final hour with just one thought in my head: "I can't wait to start all over again. " "Hunted" ( 9 p.m. CT Oct. 19, Cinemax; 3.5 stars out of 4 ), which springs from the paranoid and marvelous mind of Frank Spotnitz ("The X-Files") is smart, challenging and completely addictive. Oh, and it's a helluva good time.

I imagine Stonebridge and Scott are finally finishing their motorcycle ride across the U.S. now that they've finished their latest mission. Just because the boys and Cinemax's "Strike Back" are gone again until next year doesn't mean fans will have to miss all the military action completely. Cinemax is bringing us "Strike Back: Origins," the original British series that inspired the Stonebridge-Scott version we've enjoyed for three seasons. It debuts at 9 p.m. CT Oct. 25 on Cinemax.

Get ready "Strike Back" fans, director Michael J. Bassett is back at the helm for the final two episodes of Season 3.
