From executive producer Alan Ball, creator of True Blood, this Cinemax action drama charts the continuing twists and turns that follow Lucas Hood (Antony Starr), an ex-convict who improbably assumes the identity of sheriff of the rural, Amish-area town of Banshee, where his former lover and partner-in-crime (Ivana Milicevic) lives under her own alias, Carrie Hopewell. Season 2 takes up immediately after the S1 finale, when Carrie’s father, gang kingpin Rabbit (Ben Cross) was left for dead after a climactic warehouse shootout. Carrie, now exposed and estranged from her husband and kids, is torn between her devotion to her family and her connection to Lucas, who had given himself up in order to save her years earlier. The new season finds Lucas, having escaped detection after being interrogated by FBI agent Jim Racine (guest star Zeljko Ivanek), with his hands fuller than ever as sheriff, dealing with (among other things) the murder of a Kinaho tribe girl, the continuing escalation of tensions between Amish overlord Kai Proctor (Ulrich Thomsen) and Kinaho tribe leader Alex Longshadow (Anthony Ruivivar), and the unwelcome appearance of a surprise visitor: the reprobate son of the real (dead) Lucas Hood.

Just as awesome as the first season. Can't wait for season 3. Barely anyone has heard of it so I tell everyone to watch it. Very underrated.
Banshee is my guilty pleasure. Yes, it's gratuitous and hyper violent and sexual. But underneath all that it has some of the best and most complex characters currently on TV period. Combined with a unique setting and storytelling that focuses on the overall story arc, this all comes together for a thrill of a ride. It might be the in your face, gritty action that keeps you on the edge of your seat--but its the nuanced and original storytelling that manages to make very real world emotional connections (despite the admittedly fantastical/not realistic at all backdrop) that actually keeps you coming back to the show.
I wasn't quite sure how they would top season one, but was pleasantly surprised at just how well season 2 flowed from season 1's storyline. The Rabbit plot line comes to a satisfying conclusion, and a whole new world of other drama is set into motion mainly dealing with the local Native tribe and Proctor (the unscrupulous ex-Amish mafia boss). Banshee also didn't...
Consistency of characters, continuity of existing story lines coupled with action, excitement and intrigue are what makes Banshee a great series!
Where can they possibly head next?
Can't wait until next year!!
Banshee - one of the best shows on cable - gets a FIVE STAR rating!
