Cinemax has announced that principal photography has officially begun on their hit action-packed drama series STRIKE BACK season 5 of ten episodes, in Jordan and Hungary, with a brand new cast portraying members of the revived Section 20. Season 5 will also feature a new team facing new threats and new enemies and stars Warren Brown as “Mac” McAllister, Daniel MacPherson as Samuel Wyatt, Roxanne McKee as Natalie Reynolds, and Alin Sumarwata as Gracie Novin.

Also starring Nina Sosanya as Adeena Donovan, Katherine Kelly as Jane Lowry, and Trevor Eve as Morgan Ives.

Disavowed and disbanded, the Section program is restored in order to track down a notorious terrorist following a brutal prison break. Tasked with covert military intelligence and high-risk operations, the resurrected unit embarks on a lethal manhunt that will uncover a vast web of interconnected criminal activity. As the team journeys across the Middle East and Europe, they uncover a deadly conspiracy that threatens to overwhelm them all and change the face of modern warfare forever.

STRIKE BACK‘s confidential consultants, who work in the field of counterterrorism, will also return for the new season. Their expertise is a resource for story, terminology, procedure, accuracy, character development and regional issues, providing insight into the highly secretive world of “Black Ops”. They also train the cast in battle tactics, weaponry and combat, as the lead actors do the majority of their own stunts.

Kary Antholis, President of Cinemax said:

“STRIKE BACK has been critical to defining Cinemax as a destination for adrenalized, combat-based dramas with spectacular production values. This rebirth of the series will undoubtedly satisfy the show’s loyal fans, and our new ensemble cast promises to attract a new generation to the show.”

Sharon Hughff, Executive Producer for Left Bank Pictures said:

“We are so thrilled to be welcoming a new cast to Section 20 and the four actors are a fantastic addition to the STRIKE BACK family. The STRIKE BACK series is still going strong and we can’t wait to see this new season on screen with the intensity and high action that fans have come to expect for the show!”
