New team. Same attitude.
The hit series reboots in 2018 with 10 all-new episodes – and a fresh team of fearless commandos, recruited by the newly reformed Section 20 to hunt down a fanatical terrorist and his renegade wife.
Strike Back returns after a more than two-year hiatus, with a new cast of intrepid protagonists and nefarious villains facing off in a risky international game of cat and mouse. A high-octane thriller filled with an abundance of adrenalized action and heart-pounding suspense that are the franchise’s trademarks, Season 5 of Strike Back introduces MAX viewers to four newly minted members of Section 20, the disbanded secret British anti-terrorist unit that has been resurrected in the wake of a deadly terrorist’s escape. Faced with daunting odds in a variety of hostile settings, the new team – Samuel Wyatt (Daniel MacPherson), Gracie Novin (Alin Sumarwata), Thomas “Mac” McAllister (Warren Brown), and Natalie Reynolds (Roxanne McKee) – take full advantage of Section 20’s state-of-the-art resources to prevent the elusive Omair Idrisi and his equally sinister British- born wife Jane Lowry from unleashing a stolen cache of weapons of mass destruction. Over the course of the season, viewers will hold on to their collective seats as the covert unit embarks on a lethal manhunt involving a vast global web of criminal and terrorist activity. As the team journeys across North Africa, the Middle East and Europe, they uncover a toxic conspiracy that threatens to destroy them and change the face of modern warfare forever.
