Strike Back is a British/American action and military television series, based on a novel of the same name by novelist and former Special Air Service (SAS) soldier Chris Ryan. The series follows the actions of Section 20, a secretive branch of the British Defence Intelligence service (DI), who operate several high risk, priority missions throughout the globe. The series began broadcasting on Sky1 on 5 May 2010, showing the first six-part series. After a second series was commissioned, it was announced that Cinemax would co-produce the franchise. The first episode of the ten-part second series, under the banner title Project Dawn in the United Kingdom, first aired on Cinemax on 12 August 2011. The ten-part third series, under the title Strike Back: Vengeance, began airing on Cinemax on 17 August 2012. On 3 October 2012, Cinemax and Sky commissioned a fourth series, which was broadcast on Cinemax beginning 9 August 2013. A ten-episode fifth and final season will air in 2015.
Executive producer Andy Harries gained hold of the novel and pitched a television adaption to Sky, even though he had not read it. Sky commissioned the series as part of a £10 million commitment to adapt novels into original dramas following the successes of adapting Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels. Following Cinemax's participation from the second series, the series faced a re-imagining due to the absence of first series lead Richard Armitage, who was at the time filming The Hobbit in New Zealand. Before filming several cast members participated in bootcamp training by former SAS and Special Boat Service (SBS) officers. The series was filmed on location in South Africa, although parts of the second series were filmed in Hungary. (source: en.wikipedia.org)
Six months after their last mission, three members of the British special-ops team Section 20 - Gracie Novin, Samuel Wyatt and Thomas "Mac" McAllister - reunite for what they think is a routine "cleanup" exercise in Malaysia. Things get complicated when their new commanding officer, borderline burn-out Alexander Coltrane, learns that a British operative, in possession of intel about a downed Russian plane, has been killed in Kuala Lumpur after meeting with Katrina Zarkova, a covert Russian operative.
The trail leads Wyatt, Mac and Novin to a Russian safehouse, where Katrina and her team of Russian soldiers are attempting to track a mysterious "package" stolen from the plane, which crashed into the ocean under suspicious circumstances. The confrontation turns bloody when members of a brutal Malaysian triad arrive, setting off a chain of dangerous encounters in the skies and skyscrapers of Kuala Lumpur.
Section 20 forges an uneasy alliance with Zarkova in hopes of tracking down a stolen nuclear warhead in Kuala Lumpur. The group is frustrated when Police Inspector Amy Leong, who has connections to triad leader Godfather Kim and his henchman Laoshu, pulls them off the job after a false alarm. High Commander McKitterick finds himself in an untenable dilemma, while Novin defies Coltrane's orders to settle a score.
Section 20's search for the missing nuclear warhead leads them to Goa, India, where three scientists have been kidnapped by Gopan, a militant under orders from a mysterious "kingfisher." When one of the scientists escapes, the team catches up to him and his daughter, gaining valuable intel on Anjali Vartak, a rich Hindu with a personal vendetta against Muslims. S20 infiltrates a suspicious fundraiser as Coltrane and new S20 computer whiz Olivia Chetri deal with a breach in security.
As Wyatt is tortured by Vartak's henchmen, Mac presses her corrupt lawyer to hand over an encrypted hard drive that might hold clues to the whereabouts of a pair of "nuclear suitcases." After being sorely tested in a deadly hostage standoff at an office building, the team is forced to lean on Zarkova to commandeer high-end Russian technology, crack the encryption code and make a final foray to a secret hideout, where Vartak, Gopan and the nuclear packages await.
Following a high-speed jungle ambush in Myanmar, the suitcase nukes end up in the hands of Jean-Baptiste Zaza, a brutal Rwandan drug lord with a jealous streak. Even as they continue to suspect Zarkova's motives, Section 20 journeys to the Punchan Province and connects with Lauren Gillespie, a DEA agent with inside intel on Zaza and Dagon, his second in command. With the suitcase on the verge of being sold to a jihadist, Coltrane tasks Novin with impersonating the buyer in order to ascertain the WMD's location. Meanwhile, Colonel Beshnov, the Russian Alpha Group leader, surprises Pavel with a revelation about Zarkova.
After ditching the seaplane they hijacked, Novin and Zarkova find themselves at the mercy of corrupt police, while Mac and Wyatt take temporary refuge in a local village. Coltrane finally learns the location of the suitcase nukes, but the revelation comes at a high price. Finally, Section 20 tracks down Zaza and the nukes - as well as an unexpected interloper - in a remote compound, and all hell breaks loose. Expecting the worst, Wyatt makes a call back home, while Pavel forces Zarkova to come to terms with what happened to Alpha Group.
