"Ray Donovan" will see a second season.
Showtime's new summer series has just got under way, but it has already been renewed. In his first TV series starring role, Liev Schreiber stars as Hollywood's leading professional fixer; he's called upon to help with all sorts of problems in Los Angeles. Drama hits, though, when his father, Mickey Donovan (Jon Voight), is unexpectedly released from prison.
"'Ray Donovan' is on track to be our biggest season 1 show ever," said David Nevins, president of entertainment for Showtime Networks, in a statement. "Ann Biderman and the extraordinarily talented creative team, coupled with the brilliant ensemble cast led by Liev Schreiber, have produced one of the hottest new dramas of the year. We are proud and excited to pick up another season."
"I was shocked. Script after script was just remarkable on our first season," Schreiber recently told "CBS This Morning" about "Ray Donovan." "And also our production value. One of the difficult things was shooting 12 one-hour films over the course of the year."
"Ray Donovan" airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on Showtime.
