CINEMAX ANNOUNCES START OF PRODUCTION FOR

FOURTH SEASON OF HIT ACTION SERIES BANSHEE

Banshee S3 Key ArtNEW YORK, April 8, 2015 – Production has begun in Pittsburgh on the fourth season of the Emmy®-winning CINEMAX action series BANSHEE, it was announced today by Kary Antholis, president, HBO Miniseries and CINEMAX Programming. The eight-episode season will air in 2016, with Alan Ball, Greg Yaitanes, Jonathan Tropper, Peter Macdissi, Adam Targum and Ole Christian Madsen executive producing.

BANSHEE concluded its third season last month, achieving record ratings for CINEMAX as well as critical acclaim. Yahoo! named it “TV’s best action show,” while the A.V. Club described the series as “one of the best things on television, period.” The Huffington Post called the show “wildly witty,” and Grantland said BANSHEE is “a whole hell of a lot of fun.”

Debuting in Jan. 2013, BANSHEE stars Antony Starr (“Wish You Were Here”) as Lucas Hood, an ex-con and master thief who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, Pa., where he continues his criminal pursuits while enforcing his own code of justice.

Other cast includes Ivana Milicevic (the upcoming “Aloha,” HBO’s “Mind of the Married Man”) as Carrie Hopewell, a notorious jewel thief who lives in Banshee under an assumed identity with her new family, which has recently learned of her criminal past; Ulrich Thomsen (“The Celebration”) as Lucas’ arch-enemy, Kai Proctor, an intimidating, wealthy businessman who believes he is above the law; Hoon Lee (“The Blacklist”) as Job, a dangerous transvestite computer hacker who assists Lucas and Carrie in their criminal enterprises; Frankie Faison (“The Good Wife,” HBO’s “The Wire”) as Sugar Bates, a wise and powerful former boxer who owns the local watering hole and serves as confidante to Lucas and Job; Matt Servitto (HBO’s “The Sopranos”) as Brock Lotus, Lucas’ long-suffering veteran deputy; Ryann Shane (“Lights Out”) as Deva Hopewell, Carrie’s teenage daughter, who is rattled after learning Lucas fathered her; Lili Simmons (HBO’s “True Detective”) as Rebecca Bowman, Proctor’s sexy niece, who has taken on a larger role in his criminal activities; Matt Rauch (“The Blacklist,” “The Wolf of Wall Street”) as Clay Burton, Proctor’s multifaceted, complicated bodyguard and right-hand man; Tom Pelphrey (“The Following”) as Kurt Bunker, a former skinhead who joins the Banshee sheriff’s department as a deputy; and Chris Coy (“The Walking Dead,” HBO’s “Treme”) as Calvin Bunker, Kurt’s unsavory brother, who has kept his Nazi ties.

New to the cast are Eliza Dushku (“Dollhouse,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) as Veronica Dawson, a tough, sexy and shockingly reckless FBI profiler with no shortage of personal demons, who joins forces with Lucas, and Ana Ayora (“The Big Wedding”) as Nina Cruz, a Banshee deputy working as an inside plant for Proctor.

In Sept. 2013, BANSHEE received a Primetime Emmy® Award for Outstanding Special Visual Effects in a Supporting Role.

Season four credits: BANSHEE was created by Jonathan Tropper and David Schickler; executive producers, Alan Ball, Greg Yaitanes, Jonathan Tropper, Peter Macdissi, Adam Targum, Ole Christian Madsen; producer, Robert F. Phillips.
