Strike Back is a British–American action and military television series, broadcasting on Sky1 in the United Kingdom, and Cinemax in the United States. It is based on a novel of the same name by novelist and former Special Air Service (SAS) soldier Chris Ryan. Strike Back follows the actions of Section 20, a secretive branch of the British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6), who operate several high risk, priority missions throughout the globe.

The series began broadcasting on Sky1 on 5 May 2010, showing the first six-part series. After a second series was commissioned, it was announced that Cinemax would co-produce the franchise. The ten-part second series, undergoing the banner title Project Dawn in the United Kingdom, first aired on Cinemax on 12 August 2011. A ten-part third series, under the banner title Strike Back: Vengeance, has aired in the United Kingdom and United States. The fourth series, Strike Back: Shadow Warfare, has aired both in the United Kingdom, and the United States. The final series Strike Back: Legacy aired from 3 June to 29 of July.

As of July 30, 2015, 46 episodes have aired.
