Showtime Cancels ‘Ray Donovan’ After Seven Seasons

Showtime has canceled the long-running crime drama Ray Donovan, starring Liev Schreiber, which recently concluded its seventh season.  The network said in a statement, “after seven incredible seasons, Ray Donovan has concluded its run on Showtime. We are proud that the series ended amid such strong viewership and on such a powerful note. Our deepest thanks go to Liev Schreiber, Jon Voight, showrunner David Hollander, and the entire cast and crew, past and present, for their dedicated work.”

Liev thanked fans for their support back in January after the Season 7 finale, and urged them to reach out to Showtime for an eighth season, saying at the time: “Either way it’s been an amazing ride and we have all of you to thank for it.”

Ray Donovan premiered in 2013 and followed Schreiber’s title character, a fixer for the rich and famous. The show was nominated for multiple Emmys and Golden Globes during its run. Voight won a Golden Globe for his work as Ray’s criminal father, Mickey, and Hank Azaria took home an Emmy in 2016 for a guest role.
