International espionage has never looked so good. Sexy and explosive "Strike Back Season Two" is off and running before the show’s opening credits have even wrapped on the latest mission of the Cinemax Original Series. The scope of this season expands with the addition of American agent Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) who joins British special forces agent Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) as the two prepare to prevent highjacked nuclear hardware from falling into terrorists hands.

The agents of counterterrorism’s most elite squad "Section 20" are trained to enter into the most perilous global situations. For some, the pressure is more than they can handle, and Stonebridge finds himself caught between a rock and a hard place when one of his trainees goes rogue. All the while the duo eventually find themselves working with a new boss, Rachel Dalton (Rhona Mitra) who herself is trapped in hostile territory in Africa. In pursuit of criminals preparing to arm themselves against their own inner strife, the two must infiltrate the organization and rescue the hostages and prevent complete annihilation.

Fast-paced and full of intrigue, "Strike Back Season Two" is easy enough to jump right into with a stand-alone storyline that raises the stakes as the threat level reaches fever pitch. Audiences needn’t have subscribed to the first season to get in on the action here. The entire season is now on Blu-ray and is beyond cinematically intense. Season Two features audio commentary with the cast and crew that will take viewers behind-the-scenes and deep into the danger created for the screen.
