Showtime Cancels “Ray Donovan”

Showtime Cancels Ray Donovan

Showtime has canceled its Liev Schreiber-led drama series “Ray Donovan” after seven seasons.

The announcement comes just weeks after the seventh season finale, a cliffhanger, aired on January 19th. That will now serve as the series finale. In all 82 episodes were made, one of the longest-running Showtime series to date. It also scored ten Emmy nominations across its run.

Schreiber starred as a fixer for the rich and famous at first in Los Angeles and later in New York. Eddie Marsan, Dash Mihok, Pooch Hall, Steven Bauer, Jon Voight, and Graham Rogers co-starred.

In an official press release, Showtime says: “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.”

The news comes as the network is wrapping up many of its biggest shows in coming months with both “Homeland” and “Shameless” to air their final seasons.
