Posted Tue Apr 23, 2013 at 12:00 PM PDT by

The second season of the action-packed Cinemax series will storm Blu-ray in August.

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

A high-octane, globe-spanning thriller with storylines ripped from today's headlines, Strike Back is a one-hour drama focusing on two members of a top-secret British anti-terrorist organization known as Section 20: Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester), a married Brit who has moved from field work to training recruits as Season 2 opens, and Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton), a U.S. Delta Force operative, discharged on the eve of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, who made the most of his second chance to help Section 20 bring down an international terrorist last season. Again co-produced by Cinemax and the UK's Sky TV, the second season follows Stonebridge, Scott and new boss Rachel Dalton (Rhona Mitra) as they scour Africa in pursuit of a fresh covey of criminals, each vying for possession of a box of valuable nuclear triggers that could launch Armageddon they fall in the wrong hands.

The Blu-ray set will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include episode commentaries, Ultraviolet Digital Copies, and more to be announced at a later time.

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