Strike Back: Cinemax Season 3 on Blu-ray & DVD August 4

Strike BackCinemax’s first scripted primetime drama series returns. A high-octane, globe-spanning thriller, Strike Back focuses on two members of Section 20, a secret British anti-terrorist organization: Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester), a consummate British soldier still struggling to overcome tragedy in his life, and Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton), a disgraced U.S. Delta Force operative who has found redemption with S-20. In Season 3, the series will have a true global canvas, opening in Colombia – with parallel missions in Beirut, Budapest, Russia, and Germany – and following a trail of drug money that is funding terrorists in the Middle East.

The world isn’t saving itself so the stealth counterterrorism unit Section 20, led by the unlikely alliance between two crack special agents – the American renegade Sgt. Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) and the elite British spy Sgt. Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) – continues to pursue threats to our global security around the world. This season they track a deadly terrorist network from Colombia to Beirut to Europe, uncovering deadly plots that reach to the West. As in previous seasons, the production utilizes consultants who work in the field of counterterrorism to add to the authenticity of the series, providing essential background on stories, characters, training and settings.

The returning cast also includes Rhona Mitra as Maj. Rachel Dalton, Michelle Lukes as Sgt. Julia Richmond and Liam Garrigan as Sgt. Liam Baxter. New cast members includes Robson Green as a new member of Section 20, Dougray Scott as rogue operative James Leatherby and Milauna Jackson as a key player who crosses paths with the counterterrorism team. Strike Back is a Cinemax Presentation in association with British Sky Broadcasting Limited, a continuation of the six-episode series that aired on Sky TV in 2010, which was based on the novels of Chris Ryan, the pen name of a real-life former British Special Forces operative.
