Espionage thriller COMMANDOS arrives this week at SBS On Demand


Dutch drama series Commandos premieres this week at SBS On Demand.

Three years ago, a Dutch Special Forces team led by Commander John de Koning (Werner Kolf) was secretly sent to Northern Nigeria to rescue an important hostage kidnapped by Boko Haram.

A covert mission that turned into a nightmare.

In addition to the terrorists, many civilians – including a group of young girls – were killed, and the liberated man turned out to be a monster and a paedophile.

Now, John is charged with protecting a Nigerian Minister visiting the Netherlands as a guest of honour. This minister turns out to be none other than the man John’s team rescued three years ago in Nigeria, where he’s now an important politician.

He wants assurances that his reputation will not be tainted by what happened back then.
When his best friend and colleague is shot dead, John realises that he and the former members of his platoon are all in great danger.

In Dutch with English subtitles.

Commandos – Australian Premiere Thursday, 19 November 2020 on SBS On Demand (all ten episodes available to stream)
