UPDATE (July 29, 2015) – Cinemax has made it official: Banshee cancelled after Season 4 – no Season 5.
HBO programming president Michael Lombardo confirmed the cancellation of the Cinemax drama via statement:
“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.”
Co-creator/executive producer Jonathan Tropper added:
“Banshee has been an incredible ride, and we continue to break new ground in season four. 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. I am grateful to Cinemax for making Banshee the great success it has been and for supporting our creative decision to wrap things up.”
Original story follows below…
Although unconfirmed by Cinemax, TVLine has learned exclusively that Banshee‘s upcoming eight-episode fourth season will be the show’s last.
I’m told producers have known for some time that that end was near, and, as a result, were able to craft an “epic” conclusion to the series.
