I believe this is our first really good look at Rhona Mitra in action in the upcoming second season of “Strike Back” (or Season 3 to you International types who have been with the show for a while). Mitra’s character is essentially a replacement for Amanda Mealing, who left the show after last season, and I think it’s safe to say she won’t be returning anytime soon.
Season 2 of “Strike Back” does return stars Philip Winchester, Sullivan Stapleton and Rhashan Stone, though, and is set to debut on Cinemax August 17th, which is, yes, next month. Wow, has it been that long since Season 1 ended? Apparently so. I’m surprised Cinemax isn’t pairing “Strike Back” with the Melissa George spy show “Hunted”, though. That show won’t premiere until October. You’d think they would be made for each other, especially given that the two shows share producer Frank Spotnitz.
But hey, what do I know. Check out the latest trailer for “Strike Back”, which is as action-packed and bullet-heavy as you might expect. One thing about the show — they sure buy their squibs by the truckload!
