Previous “Strike Back” leads Sullivan Stapleton and Philip Winchester will reprise their roles as Sgt Damien Scott and Sgt Michael Stonebridge in the two final episodes of season 5 airing March 31 and April 7, Cinemax announced this week.
The high-intensity series returned with a new cast for its 10-episode fifth season on February 3, showing at the same time as in the US at 10am with a same day encore at 9pm. New episodes debut every Saturday at the same time.
After the overwhelming success of the first four seasons, the series kicked off with fanatical terrorist Omair Idrisi escaping the Syrian authorities and planning to launch an unprecedented attack that could change the face of modern warfare. The ensuing manhunt could only be entrusted to counter-terrorism’s best and brightest. Enter Section 20 – the elite, multinational, covert special ops team tasked with tracking down Idrisi and his British co-conspirator wife, Jane Lowry. The main characters include Lance Corporal Gracie Novin (Alin Sumarwata), a crack shot and ready-for-anything gearhead who is looking to make the step up. Genuine and honest to the point of bluntness, she’s the heart and soul of the team.
Sergeant Samuel Wyatt (Daniel MacPherson) is best when working alone and has no intention of being dragged into a team situation. But what he wants and what he gets are rarely the same thing.
The series is also streaming on HBO GO via AIS Play and AIS PlayBox.
