Sullivan Stapleton and Philip Winchester, the original stars of Cinemax’s Strike Back, will guest star in two episodes of the new season. The action-packed military drama recently returned for a new season with an all-new cast that includes Luther’s Warren Brown, Daniel McPherson (A Wrinkle in Time), Roxanne McKee (Game of Thrones), and Alin Sumarwata (Jack Irish). But even though the series has welcomed a brand new batch of soldiers to Section 20, that doesn’t mean it’s forgotten those who came before, to help make the series what it is.
As such, Strike Back season 5 (or season 6, if you live in the U.K.) will see the brief return of Sgt. Damien Scott and Sgt. Michael Stonebridge. The pair will be back for the final two episodes of the new season in what Cinemax is calling “special guest appearances,” so while it’s a sure thing that the duo will be around, it’s unclear (for American audiences, anyway) what sort of impact they’ll have on the season’s storyline or its sure-to-be explosive finale.
