    Just watched the pilot and I am really liking what I saw. Glad this has been renewed already.

    • Robin Russell says:

      I’m addicted already and thrilled a season two is on its way. Wish we didn’t have to wait until 2014 though!

    Excellent News great show

  3. Patricia says:

    Great news I’m hooked on this show already. Makes waiting for Strike Back to return not so painful

  4. Susie says:

    Nice, loving this show.

  5. Don't have a peen says:

    No surprises here, Cinemax doesn’t have anything else to ease the audience into the Fridays’ soft porn block. Apart from the jerking off value, this show is insulting to intelligence by its ridiculous derivativeness. But to each his own.

    • The Kaibosh says:

      Very well articulated comment….Wrong, condescending and short sighted; but well articulated.

      • Don't have a peen says:

        Just because my opinion differs from yours, it is ultimately wrong, obviously. Beautiful argumentation skills, and on the same level of rational predictability with the subject. Keep enjoying Banshee.

        • M3rc Nate says:

          Opinions can be wrong…idk why people think just cause its a opinion it can be right or wrong.

        • Robin Russell says:

          Totally agree with you dude. Well articulated comment but wrong. Banshee has depth. It is developing some very deep and dark characters and giving them what I consider heart-felt emotions. Antony Starr is particularly gifted. Talk about still waters running deep…..

    • Nico Fanelli says:

      Yea it’s hard trying to make shows that fit your superior mental capabilities you Phuck nut

    • Don't bust that nut here! says:

      Sounds like you jerk off a lot……So much you have lost your mind! Banshee has one of the most original story lines and twists there has been for a series in quite a while. You must have Tivo’d a few episodes and just fast forwarded to the jerk off scenes. It doesn’t sound like you are a person who looks for shows with story lines. Maybe pulling your chain has ruined your eyesight as well as your hearing.

  6. rachelle says:

    YES! Everything I love is getting renewed today!!

  7. Bill says:

    Good news, I really like this show.

  8. ABC says:

    The show is ok. Antony Starr is so handsome though!

  9. Lia says:

    great news, love the show

  10. Shane says:

    I love this show! I’m very excited that they a making a second season. Go Banshee!

  11. Debra says:

    I am a person that has a tendency to be very conservative and I absolutely love this show. But then I have always been more interested in the story a television show is trying to tell than the content that some people find objectionable. I love that the show has been renewed and can’t wait to see how this season ends and what happens when season 2 airs.

    • heather says:

      couldnt agree more Debra, the show is thrilling from one scene to the next & always has me wanting more. Love the way theyve finished season 1 with so many more thrills to come

  13. kmadison says:

    i was at dhs office today and this man walked in and started talking about how he has something to do with this show and that they were going to film season 2 in my town (sneedville tn)

  14. Beapryncess says:

    Great great show!! I’m glad they’ve renewed…but REALLY??? 2014??? SERIOUSLY !!!!!

  15. heather says:

    absolutely love this show, & hang out for each new episode every week. cant believe we have to wait until 2014 for season 2, my favourite show of the year other than SOA.

  16. Gabrijela says:

    Season I is very good and we’re impatient for season two…2014 is so far away.This is the best action TV show and we love it.Greetings from Croatia

  17. tony says:

    I guess you could say I am happy there will be another season. I think this show has alot of intrest and surprise. But i think the show moves fast which I like. Now for the bad the first season was predictable and I think it jumped off story a couple of times. Maybe some weird way it was relavent but I dont really know how. Alot of Van Damn and Stallone action this guy must be the real terminator to survive what he has. It was a constant bloodbath and I dont beleive even in a make beleive world he would of got away with half of what he did. Only in banshee i guess. Cant wait till next season when Rabbit comes back.

  18. Norm says:

    Bottom line… It’s thrilling entertainment with great actors and some nice boobs and butts. As for porn value… if this gets you hot you should subscribe to National Geographic and get your kicks every month instead of just 2.5.

  19. Naresh.Moorjani says:

    Nice. loved it saw all 10 episodes at a stretch. liked everything about it.

  20. Pat Garcia says:

    Love Banshee, Love Antony Starr, can’t wait for next season. Starr made me forget about Twilight for a while.

  21. Kirsty g says:

    you americans are so funny! hahaha love banshee cannot wait for season 2 left with so many cliff hangers from season 1 lets hope sherriff hood still looks as gorgeous in season 2 as he does in 1! :) from Kirsty Wigan, England.

  22. michelle healey says:

    Banshee holds your attention. It is an intelligently designed action packed thrill ride.
    Hold your breath, thank goodness there is more to come!
