With Banshee now entering it’s third season, it’s time for fans to own the complete second season of this action-packed series on Home Release. Released in stores nation-wide as of today (Wednesday 14th January), the Home Release of Banshee is packed full of special features including episode recaps, Banshee origin stories, twitter commentary with the cast and crew, deleted scenes, and more.
Executive producer Alan Ball, creator of True Blood, is heavily involved in this Cinemax action-drama about the constant twists that follow Lucas Hood (Antony Starr), an ex-con who assumes the identity of sheriff of the rural, Amish-area town of Banshee, where his ex-lover and crime partner (Ivana Milicevic) lives under the alias Carrie Hopewell.
Season 2 kicks off right where Season 1 left off, when Carrie’s father, gang leader Rabbit (Ben Cross) was left for dead after a warehouse shootout. Carrie, now exposed and estranged from her family, struggles between devotion to her family and her connection to Lucas, who has given himself up in order to save her years earlier.
The new season finds Lucas, having escaped detection after being interrogated by FBI agent Jim Racine (guest star Zeljko Ivanek), with his hands fuller than ever as sheriff, dealing with (among other things) the murder of a Kinaho tribe girl, the continuing escalation of tensions between Amish overlord Kai Proctor (Ulrich Thomsen) and Kinaho tribe leader Alex Longshadow (Anthony Ruivivar), as well as the unwelcome appearance of a surprise visitor: the reprobate son of the real (and late) Lucas Hood.
