About The Show
Banshee takes place in the fictional small town of Banshee, Pennsylvania. The series is based around an unnamed protagonist, who spent 15 years in prison after stealing $10 million in diamonds from his employer, a Ukrainian mob boss called 'Rabbit'. Upon leaving prison, the protagonist realizes that Rabbit is still after him, and he escapes to a small town called Banshee. This is also the town that he believes his former lover and accomplice, Anastasia, is living in. Unbeknownst to him, she has also assumed a new identity (Carrie Hopewell) and is married with two children. In an attempt to start a new life, the protagonist assumes the identity of Lucas Hood, a police officer, and becomes the town sheriff. Banshee sees Hood struggle with adapting to his new identity while dealing with the machinations of local crime lord Kai Proctor, piecing together his relationship with Anastasia, and remaining hidden from Rabbit.
