"Strike Back" was a surprise hit for Cinemax last season, and Season 2 (premieres Fri., Aug. 17 with back-to-back episodes starting at 10 p.m. ET) looks like it's back with a vengeance.

We've got an exclusive sneak peek at the Season 2 premiere episode of "Strike Back," which finds former Delta Force soldier Sgt. Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) being interrogated by notorious Somali warlord Huseyin Waabri.

The second season kicks off with Scott on a routine mission in Kenya that quickly turns dangerous. Meanwhile, Sgt. Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester), now no longer a part of Section 20, is training recruits, trying to stay close to home and his wife at a nearby military base ... but we have a feeling that Section 20 will have Stonebridge back in action and back with Scott soon enough.

We're getting 10 episodes this season -- almost double the premiere season's six-episode order -- so we're expecting double the action.

Watch our exclusive sneak peek right here, then tell us: Are you excited for more "Strike Back"?
