STRIKE BACK returns for its fourth and final season this summer. In the new episodes, Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) and Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester), along with the rest of Section 20, are enlisted to crack a missing-persons case in Bangkok. This elite undercover unit of British intelligence quickly realizes that what seems on the surface to be a simple kidnapping is actually the first step in a massive terrorist plot with global implications. Scott, Stonebridge and the team crisscross Asia and Europe, battling Japanese Yakuza, Russian Mafia, cyber terrorists, elite mercenaries and other deadly forces. Series regulars Robson Green, Michelle Lukes and Milauna Jackson also return for the season; new cast members include Michelle Yeoh, Will Yun Lee, Dustin Clare, Max Beesley and Michael McElhatton. A CINEMAX Presentation in association with British Sky Broadcasting Limited; a Left Bank Pictures Production; executive producers, Andy Harries for Left Bank and Cameron Roach for Sky; series producers, Michael Casey and Sharon Hughff; co-executive producer, Michael J. Bassett.

Here are two bits about production in Thailand.

As for THE KNICK at least we know it will be a ten episode season.

THE KNICK returns for its ten-episode second season this fall. Helmed by Steven Soderbergh and starring Golden Globe nominee Clive Owen as the brilliant and emotionally tortured surgeon Dr. John W. Thackery, the show is set in New York City in 1900 and centers on Knickerbocker Hospital and its groundbreaking surgeons, nurses and staff, who push the bounds of medicine in a time of astonishingly high mortality rates and zero antibiotics. André Holland, Eve Hewson, Juliet Rylance, Jeremy Bobb, Michael Angarano, Chris Sullivan, Cara Seymour, Eric Johnson, David Fierro, Maya Kazan, Grainger Hines, Leon Addison Brown, Tom Lipinski, Zaraah Abrahams, Michael Nathanson, Rachel Korine, Charles Aitken and LaTonya Borsay round out the ensemble cast of the critically acclaimed series. The creators and writing team of Jack Amiel & Michael Begler also serve as executive producers, along with Gregory Jacobs, Steven Soderbergh, Michael Sugar and Clive Owen. Steven Katz co-executive produces; Michael Polaire produces.

As for a video clip the best we can do is a Post-Op clip from the Season One finale. Stay tuned Cinemax fans!

  • Yeah, I seriously can’t wait for S2 of The Knick. And I’m binge-watching Banshee very soon, haha.
