Antony Starr's Banshee picked up for second season

Banshee640Antony Starr must be doing something right – his American series Banshee has been picked up for a second season.

Cinemax has ordered a second batch of episodes for 2014 less than a month since the show premiered.

The kiwi actor features as the lead in the drama series, which Hollywood Reporter critic Tim Goodman described as “taut, entertaining and smart”.

Starr plays Lucas Hood, an ex-con who assumes the identity of a murdered sheriff in a small town and goes about serving his own brand of justice among other things.

The show can be seen here in NZ on SoHo.
