Showtime has opted against an eighth season of drama “Ray Donovan,” which means the seventh season ender on January 19th is now the series finale.
“After seven incredible seasons, ‘Ray Donovan’ has concluded its run on Showtime,” the network said in a statement. “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.”
Premiering on June 30, 2013, ‘Ray Donovan’ followed Schreiber’s title character, a fixer for the rich and famous who isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty — or bloody. For his work as Ray’s criminal father, Mickey, Voight won a Golden Globe, while Hank Azaria took home an Emmy in 2016 for a guest role. A total of 82 episodes of “Ray Donovan” were produced.
