Thanks to some delays in production, it’s taken a long time for the new season of Strike Back to make it to our TV screens. We already know that it’s the final season of the action series on Cinemax so there’s no worry about the action series being cancelled. Was it worth the wait? Will it bring great ratings? Stay tuned.
On the final season of Strike Back, Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) of the elite British intelligence undercover unit Section 20 set out to crack a missing-persons case in Bangkok. They quickly realize that what seems to be a simple kidnapping is actually the first step in a massive terrorist plot with global implications. The rest of the cast includes Robson Green, Michelle Lukes, and Milauna Jackson.
Note: This is considered the fifth season in the UK where the series originates. Cinemax picked up the show with season two in 2011. Then, in 2013, they went back and aired the first season of six episodes as a special mini-series called Origins.
