Strike Back finally returns to UK screens this Wednesday (June 3rd) for a fifth and final 10-part season which is subtitled Legacy. Our US readers may be confused as this will be known as season four – the US missed out on the first season – when it launches over there on July 31st.
Legacy was originally due to be aired in summer 2014 but an offset injury to Sullivan Stapleton, who plays the part of Sgt Damien Scott, delayed filming.
Other returning characters include Sgt Michael Stonebridge(Philip Winchester), Sgt Julia Richmond (Michelle Lukes) and Lt Colonel Philip Locke (Robson Green).
