As you have probably heard by now, there was an annoucement yesterday regarding Banshee Season 2… and that was:
BANSHEE SEASON 2 WILL PREMIERE IN THE US ON JANUARY 10TH AT 10/9c ON CINEMAX
If you don’t live in the US, you will need to check your local guides around that time to see if the network that brought you season 1 will fast track season 2. *fingers crossed*
Earlier this year at Comic Con, Access Hollywood spoke to the Banshee gang about what we can expect from season 2 of the show. You can see Antony’s interviews here. The following article sums up what was said during the interviews with the cast as well as Greg Yaitanes and Jonathan Tropper.
Cinemax’s Banshee Sets Season 2 Premiere Date; What’s Next For Lucas Hood?
by Jolie Lash, Access Hollywood, October 18, 2013
He barely made it out of Season 1 alive, but Lucas Hood will be back when “Banshee” returns to Cinemax for Season 2 in January.
The network has confirmed that the series, from executive producers Alan Ball, Peter Macdissi, Jonathan Tropper, David Schickler and Greg Yaitanes, will premiere its second season on Friday, January 10 at 10 PM ET/PT.
Ivana Milicevic who plays Carrie/Ana on the heart-pounding series, told AccessHollywood.com that Lucas (Antony Starr) won’t be the exact same guy when fans see him next.

There’s still gonna be no stones left unturned, you’re gonna still not be able to catch your breath – or else we haven’t ‘Banshee-d’ correctly.”
Addressing that same topic, Antony said the collection of people that came together in the show’s season finale to save Lucas from Ana’s father, Rabbit, helped propel the change in his character.
“Everything was about Ana in the first season… now he’s got a community. You’ve gotta look at it like this… He committed suicide, basically. He swapped himself out for [Ana/Carrie's son], effectively going, ‘Yep, Rabbit’s gonna kill me. I accept that, so that’s a massive change from Episode 1, [where he] was this guy just coming up basically to f*** everyone over and get back what was his. So, there’s already a massive growth going on,” Antony said.
“He got tortured by Rabbit, went unconscious, for all he knows waking up was never gonna happen. He does and realizes that everyone, without [him knowing], this community of people have gone [to] bat for him,” Antony continued. “For someone that… just has this massive sense of being an outsider and needs to belong, that must be huge.”
