Life’s thrown the worst that both the east coast and west coast have to offer at Ray Donovan (Liev Schreiber) and the fixer’s still standing – did Showtime really think it stood a chance?
The cable network may have changed Ray Donovan‘s stomping grounds from Los Angeles to New York City, but they’re perfectly fine keeping him in the Showtime family, renewing the series for a seventh season. Filming will once again take place in NYC, with production slated to start this spring for an expected late 2019 premiere.
Set in the sprawling mecca of the rich and famous, Ray Donovan does the dirty work for LA’s top power players. The one-hour series stars Emmy® and Golden Globe® Award nominee Liev Schreiber in his first lead television role as the go-to guy who makes the problems of the city’s celebrities, superstar athletes, and business moguls disappear. This powerful drama unfolds when his father, played by Oscar® winner Jon Voight, is unexpectedly released from prison, setting off a chain of events that shakes the Donovan family to its core.
Produced by Showtime Networks, Ray Donovan premiered in 2013 and has proven itself to be a major player for the cable giant over the past five years. The series currently ranks among the network’s top five scripted series, putting their live+3 numbers near 2 million viewers – and that does not take into consideration viewers watching on-demand and through other services. The sixth season of Showtime’s Ray Donovan airs its season finale on January 13.
