No. of Season: 7
Ray Donovan was canceled in February by Showtime without any advance warning, leaving fans and showrunner David Hollander in shock. In an interview with Vulture, Hollander said they “had no indicator that the show was ending.” While the network didn’t offer any explanation on why it pulled the plug on the series, Hollander said that the “easiest external” factor that possibly led to the show’s cancellation was the merger of CBS and Viacom. Series star Liev Schreiber, however, revealed on Instagram in August that a Ray Donovan movie, which will serve as the series finale, was being written.
Created by Ann Biderman, Ray Donovan stars Schreiber as the titular character, a crime cleaner or fixer who arranges bribes, payoffs, threats and other illegal activities, to ensure the outcome desired by his clients.
