Cinemax’s “Banshee” will conclude its run with a fourth and final season, Variety has confirmed. The news was first reported by TVLine.

Producers have been working with execs at the cable network toward an end date for the action-drama, and mutually agreed on this solution, according to a source inside the  production.

“It’s equal parts of feeling the story has been told, wanting to go out while the show is a major success for Cinemax, and lead actor Antony Starr’s growing demands and vocal desire to leave the show,” said the source.

The season premiere of “Banshee” in January drew 540,000 same-night viewers and its finale in March drew 692,000.

Showrunner Greg Yaitanes is also at work on Cinemax’s “Quarry,” now filming in New Orleans and Memphis.

The eight-episode final season of “Banshee” is set for an early 2016 premiere. In addition to Starr, the cast includes Ivana Milicevic, Ulrich Thomsen and Frankie Faison. It was created by Jonathan Tropper and David Schickler. They and Yaitanes exec produce along with Alan Ball and Peter Macdissi.
