Banshee: The Complete Fourth Season Blu-ray October 4th






HBO Home Entertainment has officially announced they will be releasing Banshee: The Complete Fourth Season to Blu-ray and DVD on October 4, 2016. The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video in the 1.78:1 aspect ratio and a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. Below are the official details:





**SYNOPSIS**



New York, N.Y., July 18, 2016 – When the final episode of the Cinemax® fan-favorite action-drama Banshee aired in May, it sent legions of “Fanshees” into a tailspin. For four electrifying seasons, the Emmy®-winning series, packed with white-knuckle action and gripping storylines, built a passionate fan base who turned the show into the highest rated original series on the network and a modern-era cult classic. Discover what A.V. Club calls “one of the best things on television, period” when Banshee: The Complete Fourth Season arrives on Blu-ray™ and DVD (both including Digital HD) on October 4, 2016. Sure to lift any “Fanshee” out of the doldrums, the 3 disc sets are packed with behind-the-scenes extras including audio commentaries, exclusive deleted scenes, episode recaps, “Banshee Origins” (which tells the story behind the story with eight prequel videos featuring the cast of Banshee), “Zoomed In Eps 1 – 8” (an on the set feature highlighting how key, adrenaline-filled scenes were created), and specially-created cast retrospectives on “Best Fight Scenes” and “Job’s Best Outfits.”

Created by Jonathan Tropper and David Schickler, this MAX action drama charts the final twists and turns that follow Lucas Hood, an ex-convict who assumed the identity of sheriff in the Amish-area town Banshee, where his former lover and partner-in-crime was living under her own alias, Carrie Hopewell. The final season takes place two years after Lucas gave up his badge after a bloody, multimillion-dollar heist at the Camp Genoa Marine Base which proved costly: Carrie's husband Gordon was killed, and Lucas's longtime computer-hacker partner, Job, was abducted by a shady criminal ring. After settling a score with a "recruiter" from Lucas's past whom he hoped would have intel on Job, Lucas went on a bender before being rescued by an unlikely savior, Proctor's niece. Emerging from a self-imposed exile, Lucas returns to Banshee to find it a changed town. Brock Lotus is now sheriff, Kai Proctor is the mayor, and the old "Cadi" police station has been replaced by a state-of the-art facility. A new deputy with ties to Proctor, Nina Cruz, has joined Brock's team, along with Kurt Bunker, the skinhead-turned-deputy who continues to make amends for his dark past while fighting the racist overtures of the group led by his younger brother Calvin. After reuniting with Carrie, their daughter Deva, and ex-boxer Sugar Bates, Lucas becomes immersed in a new Banshee crisis: rooting out a vicious serial murderer whose latest victim is someone near and dear to his heart.
