SINGAPORE – The action hit CINEMAX exclusive series STRIKE BACK returns with a new cast for its ten-episode fifth season, same day as the U.S. on Saturday, February 3 at 11am with a same day encore at 10pm. The series will be streaming on HBO GO and will also be available on HBO On Demand.
When fanatical terrorist Omair Idrisi escapes from Syrian authorities with plans to launch an unprecedented attack that could change the face of modern warfare, the ensuing manhunt can only be entrusted to counterterrorism’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.
Their action-packed manhunt will take the unit across North Africa, the Middle East and Europe, from glitterati soirees to underworld cage fights, as they uncover and attempt to dismantle a vast global web of interconnected criminal and terrorist activity.
About the Characters
Lance Corporal Gracie Novin (Alin Sumarwata) is 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 a barroom philosopher who works best alone. Having been burned in the past, Wyatt has no intention of being dragged into a team situation. But what he wants and what he gets are rarely the same thing.
Captain Natalie Reynolds (Roxanne McKee) comes from a military family, and excels at psychological profiling and identifying weaknesses in others, although she may be blind to her own faults.
Sergeant Thomas “Mac” McAllister (Warren Brown) is a man of his word, physically capable and driven by a desire to avenge the team he’s lost. He’s easygoing, affable and utterly deadly.
