Tasked with covert military intelligence and high-risk operations, the resurrected Section 20 embarks on a lethal manhunt that will uncover a vast web of interconnected criminal activity. As the team journeys across the Middle East and Europe, it uncovers a deadly conspiracy that threatens to change the face of modern warfare forever.

MJ Bassett returns as executive producer and director.

The six-part drama Rellik will debut on Friday, April 13 at 10/9c.

Harry and Jack Williams created the drama. They executive produce with Willow Grylls, Charlie Pattinson, Elaine Pyke and Stephen Wright. Sam Miller and Hans Herbots directed the season.
