The action-packed CINEMAX drama series STRIKE BACK kicks off its sixth season, FRIDAY, JAN. 25 (10:00–11:00 p.m. ET/PT). Shot entirely in Malaysia, the new season features returning stars Warren Brown (“Luther,” “The Dark Knight Rises”), Daniel MacPherson (“A Wrinkle in Time”) and Alin Sumarwata (“Neighbours,” “Burning Man”), along with new cast members Jamie Bamber (“Battlestar Galactica,” “Monday Mornings”) and Yasemin Allen (“Water and Fire”).
When a Russian bomber crashes in the South China Sea, the covert special-ops soldiers of Section 20 — Thomas “Mac” McAllister (Warren Brown), Samuel Wyatt (Daniel MacPherson) and Gracie Novin (Alin Sumarwata) — are sent to investigate. There, they cross paths with Katrina Zarkova (Yasemin Allen), a rogue Russian operative with questionable loyalties.
Under orders of the new commanding officer, Col. Alexander Coltrane (Jamie Bamber), Section 20 pursues stolen contents of the Russian jet across Southeast Asia. They will work alongside the Malaysian police to shut down a Triad gang in Kuala Lumpur, uncover a corrupt plot by a wealthy Indian businesswoman running for Parliament and plunge into the jungles of the Golden Triangle in Myanmar, facing off against mercenary drug agents and terrifying warlords as they uncover a conspiracy that threatens to push the world to the brink of global conflict.
The series is also available on MAX GO, Cinemax On Demand and partners’ streaming platforms.
This new season marks CINEMAX’s sixth — and UK co-producer Sky’s seventh — in the STRIKE BACK franchise. In 2013, CINEMAX aired Sky’s first season of the series as “Strike Back: Origins.”
