Cinemax’s brand new series Banshee got off to a violent, sexy and fun start! Now the series is back for its second installment and we are assuming it will be more mayhem…and we mean that in a good way! Check out the synopsis for episode 2 and a couple of teaser clips!
Banshee airs Friday nights at 10pm only on Cinemax.
Synopsis: Hanson (Toby Leonard Moore), a desperate underling of Proctor, holds a rave in an Amish barn, selling homemade E pills stolen from his boss to Banshee youth, including Deva (Ryann Shane), Carrie’s rebellious daughter. Catching wind of the plan, Lucas and his team orchestrate a raid, but the effects of a tainted batch of pills send many revelers into convulsions, with one notable fatality. Though Deva is ferried home safely by Lucas, Hanson isn’t as fortunate when he returns to Kai’s mansion following the debacle.

We’ve been proud to present this entertaining, high-quality series for two seasons and to work with an incredible ensemble of talented actors, producers and creatives as well as our partners at BermanBraun Television. We’d like to thank the show’s dedicated regular viewers for their tremendous support.”

Dan Stevens who has portrayed Matthew Crawley since the first episode of the series, confirmed with the Telegraph, that he will not be returning for a fourth season. Stevens says in the interview, “It is a very monopolising job. So there is a strange sense of liberation at the same time as great sadness because I am very, very fond of the show and always will be.”
The third season of Downton Abbey has already aired in the UK and won’t air in the United States until January 6th and Stevens will be in the Christmas special.
The question we have here at the Pop Culture Principle, is how will his character exit the show? What are you thoughts?
