FILMING has begun on the ten-episode sixth season of Cinemax's high-octane drama series StrikeBack, which will be shot entirely in Malaysia. Returning stars Warren Brown, Daniel MacPherson and Alin Sumarwata are joined by new cast members Jamie Bamber  and Yasemin Allen.

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 on a mission 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.

“Strike Back has reestablished Cinemax as a destination for adrenalised, entertaining action series,” notes Kary Antholis, President, HBO Miniseries and Cinemax Programming. 
“We are delighted to offer Section 20 the opportunity to continue saving the world from mayhem and destruction.”

Jack Lothian, writer and executive producer, says, 

“We’re delighted to be back with Cinemax and Sky for a new season of StrikeBack. We have fantastic actors and crew members who work incredibly hard to provide big-screen action for the small screen, with all the drama, high stakes, and mayhem that involves, and I can’t wait for the audience to see the twists and turns we’ve got lined up.”

Among the critical praise for the series, described the previous season of Strike Back as a “visually stunning” show that “regularly delivers action sequences on par with many feature films.”

This new season marks Cinemax’s sixth in the Strike Back franchise. Viewers can stream seasons one to four of Strike Back  on HBO On Demand (via Astro GO).
