“Banshee” will be back for its second season on Friday, Jan. 10.
Cinemax announced the return date for the 10-episode series on Thursday. The show about a thief starting anew in Banshee, Pa. — a town full of secrets — is executive produced by Alan Ball, Peter Macdissi, Jonathan Tropper, David Schickler and Greg Yaitanes.
The series stars Antony Starr (“Rush”) as Lucas Hood, the ex-con who assumes the identity of the local sheriff. Other returning regulars include Ivana Milicevic (“The Mind of the Married Man,” “Charlie’s Angels”) as Carrie Hopewell; Ulrich Thomsen (“The Celebration”) as Kai Proctor, a dangerous, wealthy businessman; and Frankie Faison (“The Good Wife,” “The Wire”) as Sugar Bates, a powerful and wise former boxer and ex-con.
Also returning are Ben Cross (“Star Trek,” “Ben Hur”) as Mr. Rabbit, a ruthless Ukrainian gangster, and Anthony Ruivivar (“Southland,” “Third Watch”) as Alex Longshadow, the son of Kinaho Tribe Chief Benjamin Longshadow.
New guest stars include Zeljko Ivanek (“Damages,” “Seven Psychopaths,” “True Blood”) as Jim Racine, a renegade FBI agent; Tatanka Means (“The Host,” “Tiger Eyes”) as Hoyt Rivers, head of security for Alex Longshadow; and Julian Sands (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” “24”), as Rabbit’s younger brother, a brilliant, devout and amoral Ukrainian priest.
