Bangkok—The fourth and final season of the Cinemax action series “Strike Back” recently wrapped up filming for the last time in Bangkok, Thailand.

Southeast Asian publications, including the Inquirer, were invited to visit two sets on the last shooting day of the latest season, which will air in 2015.

The first set was at the Makkasan Station, also known as Bangkok’s City Air Terminal. The other location was within the red-light district Soi Cowboy.

Costars Sullivan Stapleton of “300: Rise of an Empire” and Philip Winchester of “Camelot” and “Fringe” spoke with reporters between takes.

Other actors who granted interviews were series regular Michelle Lukes and new cast members Christian Antidormi (“Spartacus: War of the Damned”) and Paul Swain, a former soldier injured in Afghanistan.

The new season will also feature actress-martial artist Michelle Yeoh and “Highlander” actor Adrian Paul.

The show previously filmed in Europe for the same season. Australian actor Stapleton plays a Delta Force operative, Damian Scott, while the British-American Winchester plays Sgt. Michael Stonebridge.

“Strike Back’s” final season will have 10 episodes. The airing dates will be announced in 2015.
