TVLine Items: Strike Back Premiere Date, an Americans Return and More

Cinemax’s military drama Strike Back will launch its fourth and final season on Friday, July 31, at 10/9c, the network announced Monday.

Although Season 4 initially was slated to air last summer, production was delayed after star Sullivan Stapleton sustained a serious injury off set.

As previously reported, the show’s final run will follow Sgt. Damien Scott (Stapleton) and Sgt. Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) as they try to crack a missing-persons case in Bangkok, unveiling a massive terrorist plot in the process.
