         “Banshee is a unique and compelling show that helped set high standards for
original programming for CINEMAX,” says 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,” notes 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.
