It was recently announced that Cinemax would be eliminating its original program content as the streaming service HBO Max is set to launch this year. One of the last remaining original series set to premiere is the international action-thriller series Trackers which will make its debut in June on the pay TV service. The series which is based on a novel by Deon Meyer first hit overseas last year before being acquired by Cinemax for viewing in North America.
A new trailer has just been revealed and we have it for you below and Cape Town, South Africa is ready to erupt as danger lurks in every corner.
Official Synopsis: Based on the novel of the same name from Deon Meyer’s, the series interweaves three story strands into a sophisticated action-packed thriller that covers the length and breadth of the country, explosively colliding in Cape Town in a violent conspiracy involving organized crime, smuggled diamonds, state security, black rhinos, the CIA and an international terrorist plot.
Trackers stars a great South African international cast including James Alexander (Siberia), Rolanda Marais (High Rollers), Ed Stoppard (Knightfall), Sandy Schultz (City of Angels), Brendon Daniels (Cape Town), Trix Vivier (Die Spreeus), Thapelo Mokoena (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom), Sisanda Henna (This Life), Tamer Burjaq (Bloodshot) and Avital Lvova.
With Strike Back ending this week and the fate of a second season for Warriors up in the air, this one looks like it’ll feel the void for a little while.
The original series will debut on Cinemax on June 5th at 10/9c so if you’re looking for some home viewing to choose from, check this one out and check out the teaser below!
