Strike Back Show Synopsis: The second season begins with Scott on a standard security mission in Kenya and Section 20 facing new pressures from command. Now out of the unit, Stonebridge 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.
The second season was shot on location in South Africa for storyline locations including Kenya, Somalia, Mozambique, Algeria, Zimbabwe, England and South Africa itself. The production works with a team of consultants who are in the field of counterterrorism and the military, contributing to the realistic tone of the show. In addition, the cast endured nearly a month of military training and tactics to prepare for the shoot.
In the meantime, you can check out a behind the scenes video for the second season:
