“Strike Back” returns this August and Cinemax has dropped a brand new photo from Season 3.
The new pic features everyone’s favorite counter-terrorism duo — Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) — carrying out a mission in the jungles of Colombia in the show’s August 9, Season 3 premiere.
Cinemax has also released the brand new trailer for Season 3, here.
Stonebridge and Scott, along with the rest of Section 20, will pursue a “deadly terrorist network from Colombia to Lebanon to Eastern Europe, uncovering deadly plots that threaten the West,” in Season 3, according to Cinemax.
The team will be tracking an elusive terrorist named al-Zuhari, and his drug cartel partners, as they target European and American interests — as well as Section 20.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, British actor Robson Green (formerly of the BBC America version of “Being Human”) has joined the show, playing a new member of Section 20.
Dougray Scott (he played Susan’s British boyfriend Ian Hainsworth on “Desperate Housewives” in 2006) is also part of the cast as James Leatherby, a “rogue operative.”
Additionally, Milauna Jackson (“Blood Done Sign My Name”) is set to portray a “key player who crosses paths with the counterterrorism team.”
Rhona Mitra, who joined “Strike Back” Season 2 as Major Rachel Dalton, is back as is Michelle Lukes as Sgt. Julia Richmond, and Liam Garrigan (“Pillars of the Earth”) as Sgt. Liam Baxter.
