“Strike Back” wrapped its third season on Oct. 18, and the entire season is now available on MaxGo and Max On Demand.
Debuting in 2011, the first season introduced an unlikely pair of operatives in the stealth counterterrorism unit Section 20: Sgt. Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester), an exceptional British Special Forces (SBS) soldier, and the less-conventional Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton), a former U.S. Delta Force member. In the third season, the team tracked terrorist Al-Zuhari and his conspirators from the jungles of Colombia to Beirut to Russia to Eastern Europe in order to stop a major attack on Western-allied targets.
In addition to Philip Winchester and Sullivan Stapleton, season three stars of “Strike Back” included Rhona Mitra, Robson Green, Michelle Lukes and Milauna Jackson. Season three guest stars included Dougray Scott and Zubin Varla.
