'Strike Back' teaser: One night in Bangkok

Cinemax will air for the first look at the fourth and final season of "Strike Back" just before Friday’s episode of "The Knick," but you can see it here first.

The clip shows stars Philip Winchester, Sullivan Stapleton, Michelle Lukes and Robson Greene filming in Thailand, where much of the upcoming season is set. And in typical "Strike Back" fashion, they’re blowing things up, jumping from motorcycles to cars and "shooting bad dudes in Bangkok," as Stapleton says.

One new twist this season, as Winchester points out in the video—they’re jumping off tall buildings. "Probably the scariest thing I’ve done on ‘Strike Back,’ " he says, "because I’m not a huge fan of heights."

The season will debut sometime in 2015 after filming was delayed several months when Stapleton was injured off-set. Production will resume later this year on the 10-episode season.

It’s the first time the production has filmed in Asia, a goal set by co-executive producer, writer and director Michael J. Bassett.

"We want to change the pallet and go to the East, go at a new enemy," Bassett told me during San Diego Comic-Con 2013.

In "Strike Back," the above cast members play operatives of an elite British military unit called Section 20. Cinemax plans to release more details about the new season in the upcoming weeks.

The network currently is airing all the previous seasons of the show, in order, on Wednesday nights.
