Last year, Sullivan Stapleton was injured while off of the “Strike Back” set, which led to a long break in the production of the fourth and final season. However, Stapleton was able to complete the season with his co-star, Philip Winchester and “Strike Back” Season 4 is now just a few months away.
At the Television Critics Association Press Tour, Cinemax announced that “Strike Back” Season 4 will premiere this summer, with the final 10 episodes of the series.
The new storyline catches up with Damien Scott (Stapleton) and Michael Stonebridge (Winchester) as Section 20 is called in to find missing people in Bangkok. However, the case leads Scott and Stonebridge to discover “a massive terrorist plot with global implications” that will put them against the Russian mob, the Japanese Yakuza, terrorist hackers, and mercenaries while traveling across Europe and Asia.
Fellow “Strike Back” veterans Robson Green, Michelle Lukes and Milauna Jackson will join Stapleton and Winchester for the final season. New additions to the cast include Michelle Yeoh, Will Yun Lee, Dustin Clare, Max Beesley and Michael McElhatton.
Cinemax also announced that it’s critically acclaimed period medical drama, “The Knick” will begin its second season in the fall.
