'Strike Back: Cinemax Season 2' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Tue Jul 2, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The second season of the adrenaline-fueled series takes aim at Blu-ray in August.

In an early announcement to retailers, HBO is preparing 'Strike Back: Cinemax Season 2' for Blu-ray on August 6.

The Emmy® nominated series continues to follow the stealth counter-terrorism unit Section 20 and the unlikely alliance between two crack special agents - one an American renegade, the other an elite British spy.

With world security storylines ripped from today's headlines, the second season begins with Sgt. Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) on a standard security mission in Kenya and Section 20 facing a new boss, Rachel Dalton (Rhona Mitra). Now out of the unit, Sgt. Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) is training recruits at a military base, staying close to home and being a dutiful husband. When Scott's mission takes an unexpected dangerous turn, the two are back together working to retrieve an elusive box of nuclear triggers coveted by everyone from Al Qaeda to the expatriate leader of a mercenary army.

Additional cast members include Rhashan Stone, Michelle Lukes, Vincent Regan, Liam Garrigan and Charles Dance. Strike Back is a Cinemax Presentation in association with British Sky Broadcasting Limited, a continuation of the six-episode series that aired on Sky TV in 2010, which was based on the novels of Chris Ryan, the pen name of a real-life former British Special Forces operative.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but the release will include audio commentaries.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $49.99.
