The series follows the explosive escapades of Section 20, an elite, multinational, covert special ops team, as it spans the globe fighting a vast web of interconnected criminal and terrorist activity. The fifth season finale is set for April 6 at 10 PM.
“The rebirth of Strike Back has reestablished Cinemax as a destination for adrenalized, entertaining action series,” said Kary Antholis, president, HBO Miniseries and Cinemax Programming. “We are delighted to offer Section 20 the opportunity to continue saving the world from mayhem and destruction.”
Season five actors include Warren Brown, Daniel MacPherson, Roxanne McKee, Alin Sumarwata, Nina Sosanya, Don Hany, Trevor Eve and Katherine Kelly.
The next season will mark Cinemax’s sixth, and UK co-producer Sky’s seventh season in the Strike Back franchise. Cinemax began airing the series with Sky’s second season, and in 2013, presented Sky’s first season of the show as Strike Back: Origins.
