‘Banshee’ Scoop: Odette Annable Returning for Season 2

'Banshee' Renewed
Alan Ball's Cinemax thriller gets a second season.
Odette Annable hasn’t even appeared on the current season of Cinemax’s Banshee yet, but Celebuzz can report that she’ll be back for the newly announced Season 2.

Annable revealed the news to Celebuzz while promoting the haircare line, Clear Hair and Scalp Beauty Therapy. Additionally, a Cinemax spokesperson also confirmed Annable’s second season return to the new series from True Blood co-creator Alan Ball.

So, who is Annable playing? “I come in towards the end of the season. Her name is Nola Longshadow,” the actress tells us.

“It’s a different character than I have ever played,” the House alum also says. “Completely different, actually. I play a Native American assassin.”

Yes, the last name should ring a bell. We’ve already met two Longshadows: the father-son team that runs the town of Banshee’s casino. But, apparently, fans will have to wait until Season 2 to see Nola mix it up with Lucas Hood (Antony Starr), the ex-con who’s masquerading as Banshee’s sheriff.

“Right now, they just set her up and they just show her backstory and how she’s mixed up with her family, how her character sort of comes in,” Annable explains. “It’s very background and then she’ll sort of dive into her agenda.”

Banshee airs Fridays at 10PM on Cinemax.

What’s your take on Nola Longshadow? Even without meeting her yet, are you to excited that she’ll be back for Season 2?
