The entire series was filmed on location in Malaysia.
What is the official plot of Strike Back: Silent War (series 7)?
When a Russian bomber crashes in the South China Sea, three covert special-ops soldiers of Section 20 – Gracie Novin, Thomas “Mac” McAllister and Samuel Wyatt – are reunited and sent on a mission to investigate.
Arriving in Malaysia, they cross paths with Katrina Zarkova, a highly trained rogue Russian operative with questionable loyalties. Under orders from their new commanding officer, Col. Alexander Coltrane, S20 pursues the valuable stolen contents of the downed Russian jet across Southeast Asia.
Working alongside the Malaysian police to shut down a Triad gang in Kuala Lumpur, the team uncovers a corrupt plot by a wealthy Indian nationalist running for Parliament, plunges into the jungles of the Golden Triangle in Myanmar, and faces off against mercenary drug agents and terrifying warlords as they unmask a conspiracy that threatens to push the world to the brink of global conflict.
What about Scott and Stonebridge, will they feature again?
There’s no word yet if Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) and Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) will feature again this season. It would be fantastic if they did but we aren’t expecting them to save the day this time. If we eventually get that long rumoured Strike Back movie then hopefully they’ll feature there.
Will there be a Strike Back season 8?
Funny you should ask, Cinemax has already renewed Strike Back for season 8. Sadly season 8 is set to be the final season.
