The sixth season of Strike Back will premiere on Sky1 on Tuesday October 31st at 9pm, it has been announced.
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 HBO/Cinemax and stars Warren Brown (Luther), Daniel MacPherson (The Shannara Chronicles), Roxanne McKee (Game Of Thrones) and Alin Sumarwata (Neighbours).
The new season picks up after the events of season five, which ended with Section 20 being disbanded. Season six will see the disavowed and disbanded Section programme 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 journey across the Middle East and Europe, they uncover a deadly conspiracy which threatens to overwhelm them all and change the face of modern warfare forever.
