Banshee‘s third season achieved critical acclaim and record ratings for CINEMAX. “Banshee has been an incredible ride, and we continue to break new ground in season four,” said 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”. In addition to that, Michael Lombardo, president of HBO Programming said on the show that “Banshee is a unique and compelling show that helped set high standards for original programming for CINEMAX. 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.”
