It turns out that San Diego "ain't no place for no hero, go home."

Cinemax has announced that it will be holding the world premiere of "Strike Back" season 2 at this year's San Diego Comic-Con International alongside cast members Philip Winchester, Sullivan Stapleton and Rhona Mitra.

On Friday, July 13 at 8PM in Room 6DE, Hitfix's Alan Sepinwall will moderate the "Strike Back" season 2 panel with Winchester, Stapleton and Mitra. The next day, Cinemax will hold a special screening of the first two episodes of the season at 1PM in the Cinemas Gaslamp Stadium 15; which is only three blocks away from the convention center. All three cast members will also be present for the event and seating will be available on a first come, first served basis.

Cinemax has also released a brief synopsis of the new season of "Strike Back."

The second season begins with Damien Scott (Stapleton) on a standard security mission in Kenya and Section 20 facing new pressures from command. Now out of the unit, Michael Stonebridge (Winchester) is training recruits at a military base, staying close to home and being a dutiful husband. When Scott’s mission takes an unexpected dangerous turn, Section 20 must find an immediate and creative solution.

The team’s risky missions focus on priority targets. They work in complete secrecy, sometimes behind enemy lines. Their efforts are rarely known and sometimes have unfortunate consequences. The operatives are highly skilled and dedicated, often at great personal cost.
And if that's not enough "Strike Back" for you, our friends at Cinemax have passed along a new production video in which Winchester describes Stonebridge's "Batman moment."



The new season of "Strike Back" begins on Friday, August 17, only on Cinemax!
