Based on the novel of the same name by Chris Ryan, Strike Back follows the exploits of Section 20, an elite counterterrorism unit as it spans the globe to stop potential threats, often behind enemy lines. The drama series is produced by Left Bank Pictures in association with BSkyB & HBO/Cinemax and stars Phillip Winchester, Sullivan Stapleton, Rhashan Stone and Michelle Lukes. Joining the cast for its third season is Charles Dance as Conrad Knox, and Rhona Mitra (Boston Legal) as Rachel Dalton, the new CO of Section 20.
In the show’s third season, which spans 10 episodes, militants loyal to notorious Somali warlord Huseyin Waabri attack a routine embassy escort and kidnape a British diplomat and junior attaché. Damien Scott is sent into Mogadishu solo to retrieve them. Meanwhile, back in the UK, Stonebridge struggles to adjust to his new career outside of Section 20.
