Banshee, , the Cinemax action-drama created by Jonathan Tropper and David Schickler, follows the continuing twists and turns that follow Lucas Hood (Antony Starr), an ex-convict who improbably assumes the identity of sheriff of the rural, Amish-area town of Banshee, PA, where his former lover and partner-in-crime has been living under her own alias, Carrie Hopewell (Ivana Milicevic). This action-packed series has developed a devoted fan base of “Fanshees” who are hooked on the high-octane storytelling and compelling characters. Timed to its fourth and final season, Banshee: The Complete Third Season debuts on Blu-ray + Digital HD copy and DVD on April 5, 2016. The release is loaded with extensive bonus content taking “Fanshees” behind the scenes of the show.
Season 3 picks up a month after the Season 2 finale, when Carrie’s father, gang kingpin Rabbit (Ben Cross), finally met his demise after a climactic church shootout. Carrie, now exposed and estranged from her husband and kids, remains in Banshee, working as a waitress by day while moonlighting with Lucas, Sugar Bates (Frankie Faison) and Job (Hoon Lee) on a variety of local heists. As Lucas finds it harder and harder to keep his true identity from his deputies – especially Siobhan Kelly (Trieste Kelly Dunn), now his romantic interest – he and the police force become embroiled in a new conflict between Amish gangster Kai Proctor (Ulrich Thomsen) and Chayton Littlestone (Geno Segers), the vicious, vengeance-minded leader of the Redbone wing of the Kinaho tribe. And as fists and bullets fly in and around the town, Lucas concocts a new scheme that could net his thieves a fortune – by robbing a decommissioned Marine compound housing millions of dollars.
Season 3 is a chaotic ride from start to finish that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It has all of the action, deceit, and thrills from the first two seasons that Banshee fans love! The special features are a fun and interesting look into how they did the iconic scenes from season 3.
