Tv Season Info

Season 2 of this involving crime drama continues to chronicle the exploits of an ex-con who assumes the identity of a lawman named Lucas Hood (Antony Starr) in the small, out-of-the-way Pennsylvania town of Banshee. The series kicks off with the arrival of an FBI special agent (Zeljko Ivanek) who opens an investigation into the vicious shootout between Hood and New York mob czar Rabbit (Ben Cross), whom the "lawman" once double-crossed, and metes out his own brand of justice. Hood's former partner-on-crime, Carrie ( Ivana Milicevic), tries to patch up things with husband, Gordon (Rus Blackwell), and daughter, Deva (Ryann Shane ), but is spurned. Meanwhile, a horrific murder triggers problems between the Amish community and the Kinaho tribe, and during the investigation, Lucas and his deputies confront an unruly gang of Kinaho bikers. Local crime kingpin Proctor (Ulrich Thomsen) takes matters into his own hands and delivers a peace offering to the Kinaho in hopes of cooling off the hostilities between the two groups. In the Series 2 finale, Lucas and Carrie head to New York, where they prep for a final showdown with Rabbit.

Critic Reviews for Banshee: Season 2

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1)

This Cinemax series knows it's crazy. It delights in its trashiness, its pulpiness. There's lots of crazy violence. There's lots of crazy sex. There are lots of crazy gunfights. The actors... are crazy hot.

This first episode of season two doesn't disappoint.

If, amidst all the fisticuffs, high-speed robberies, and squirrel crushing Banshee can discover and show the audience what it is about these characters that makes them want to choose one life over the other, then season 2 might just top the first.

The beauty of Banshee comes from its compelling storytelling but also from its layered and complex characters, each of them continually being fleshed out.

My affection for this show grows as it pummels its way into a taut, enjoyable second season.

January 10, 2014 | Full Review…

If Banshee's first season, at its best, was a gleeful binge on pop storytelling at its most disreputable, the second season feels like the hangover.

Audience Reviews for Banshee: Season 2

½

This season was more of the same and not of the good kind. The whole Mr. Rabbit ordeal should've been solved on S01 and we're treading on the same ground here as far as our protagonists go. Still, the villains get some more screen time with mixed results. The annoying flash back montage is here too, the silly romance too; only the nuttiness of the fight scenes and action set pieces is still top notch.

Picking up from what's left in the end of season 1. Season 2 still shines brightly, the plot still managed to be interesting, it featured the subplot of racial tension within the peaceful town, which lead to a war between the Amish community and the Native American clan.
