The third season of Cinemax’s drama series Banshee will receive its UK premiere on Sky Atlantic on Thursday June 4th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Created by Jonathan Tropper & David Schickler and executive produced by True Blood showrunner Alan Ball, Banshee follows Lucas Hood, an ex-con and master thief who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, Pa., where he continues his criminal activities, even as he’s hunted by the shadowy gangsters he betrayed years earlier. The drama series stars Antony Starr, Ivana Milicevic, Ulrich Thomsen, Frankie Faison, Hoon Lee, Rus Blackwell, Matt Servitto, Trieste Kelly Dunn, Ryann Shane, Lili Simmons, Odette Annable and Geno Segers. New cast additions for season three include Langley Kirkwood as Col. Douglas Stowe, a duplicitous Marine leader, and Afton Williamson as Alison Medding, Banshee’s new assistant district attorney.
In the opening episode of the show’s third season, titled The Fire Trials, Lucas, Brock and Siobhan exact payback on a skinhead responsible for Emmett’s death. Now waitressing at a local diner, Carrie faces new challenges in the wake of her revelation to Gordon and Deva about her past. After Alex Longshadow’s death, a new, menacing threat looms on the horizon for Lucas, not to mention Proctor and Rebecca: Chayton Littlestone, hell-bent on whipping the Kinaho tribe into a frenzy of violence against their enemies. Investigating the murder of four Marines, Lucas eyes the possibility of a huge, if dangerous, heist, and attempts to re-enlist Job to help him and Sugar pull it off.
