Cinemax has announced that production has begun on the sixth season of its action drama series “Strike Back” with all ten episodes of the new season to be shot entirely in Malaysia.
Warren Brown, Daniel MacPherson and Alin Sumarwata are returning for the sixth season, and are joined by two new faces – “Battlestar Galactica” alum Jamie Bamber and Turkish/British actress Yasemin Allen.
In the new season, a Russian bomber crashes in the South China Sea. The covert special-ops soldiers of Section 20 are sent on a mission to investigate and cross paths with Katrina Zarkova (Allen), a rogue Russian operative with questionable loyalties.
Under orders of the new commanding officer, Col. Alexander Coltrane (Bamber), Section 20 pursues stolen contents of the Russian jet across Southeast Asia – helping shut down a Triad gang in Kuala Lumpur, uncover a corrupt plot by a wealthy Indian businesswoman, and facing terrifying warlords in the jungles of Myanmar’s Golden Triangle.
“Strike Back” will return to screens in 2019.
