Today is the big day for Cinemax’s Strike Back – the premiere of its final season – and the network is capping off its week-long video series with a last countdown video that reminds audiences just how many places Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) and Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) have traveled to over four cycles of overwhelming bad guys.
Fans can check out “Spanning the Globe” by using the media player included with this article, and though it’s brief it really does capture how broad of a canvas the series has painted on since it launched in its current incarnation in 2011. (Die-hard fans will remember that a first series aired on British broadcaster Sky with Hannibal‘s Richard Armitage and The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln. Because it aired on different network with different characters, that series is generally not counted when referring to Strike Back as it airs in America.)
In addition, Cinemax is helping out fans who may need a little catch-up by posting a season three recap ahead of the kick-off to season four. Every episode of last season, as well as every episode from the Cinemax run, is also still available on demand via Cinemax On Demand or its mobile service MAX GO.
For those who can’t wait until tonight, our preview of the season premiere is available here. There’s clearly a lot of anticipation, because as of this writing, #StrikeBack was the top trending hashtag on Twitter.
Strike Back returns to Cinemax on Friday, July 31 at 10 PM ET/PT.
