Cinemax confirmed that Banshee‘s fourth season will be its last. Banshee will be back in January 2016 for an eight episode final season with Antony Starr, Ivana Milicevic, and Ulrich Thomsen back in starring roles. Jonathan Tropper, Alan Ball, Greg Yaitanes, Peter Macdissi, Adam Targum, and Ole Christian Madsen are executive producing season four.
“Banshee is a unique and compelling show that helped set high standards for original programming for CINEMAX,” stated Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. “The show’s exceptional blend of action and drama earned a vocal and passionate fan base that will not be disappointed in Banshee’s final season.”
“Banshee has been an incredible ride, and we continue to break new ground in season four,” added co-creator and executive producer Jonathan Tropper. “While we certainly considered returning for a fifth season, I always said that when the story was told, it would be time to move on, and that time has come. I am grateful to CINEMAX for making Banshee the great success it has been and for supporting our creative decision to wrap things up.”
