The Cinemax action drama “Strike Back” debuts its third season at 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 9.

Returning series stars are Philip Winchester, Sullivan Stapleton, Rhona Mitra, Michelle Lukes and Liam Garrigan, and new cast members are Robson Green, Dougray Scott and Milauna Jackson.

A summary of Season Three, provided by Cinemax, is as follows:

In “Strike Back’s” third season, stealth counterterrorism unit Section 20 pursues a deadly terrorist network from Colombia to Lebanon to Eastern Europe, uncovering deadly plots that threaten the West. The team tracks the elusive terrorist al-Zuhari and his well-financed drug cartel partners as they target European and American interests, both at home and abroad, including Section 20 itself.  As they often must do, the Section 20 team is forced to resort to extraordinary measures to protect the greater good, making some members question their future with the unit.
