None of the original cast returns for this fifth season that sees the previously disavowed Section program – an elite, multinational covert special ops team -- restored to track down a terrorist following a prison break.

The manhunt will take the team across North Africa, the Middle East and Europe as they try to take down an interconnected web of terrorist activity. Daniel MacPherson, Roxanne McKee and Alin Sumarwata star in the series.
