Cinemax has made official what a number of observers have felt would happen, confirming that the fourth season of “Banshee” will be the show’s last.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show’s final season will debut in January, running for eight episodes.
In a statement, HBO Programming President Michael Lombardo said: “‘Banshee’ is a unique and compelling show that helped set high standards for original programming for Cinemax.”
The show’s co-creator and executive producer Jonathan Tropper added: “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.”
