No surprise here: Showtime’s summer hit Ray Donovan was just renewed for a second season. The show premiered June 30 and its most recent episode scored 2.2 million viewers Sunday night.
Liev Schreiber stars as L.A.’s best professional fixer, the man called in to make the problems of the city’s elite go away. Drama unfolds when his devious father, Mickey Donovan (Jon Voight), is unexpectedly released from prison, setting off a chain of events that shakes up the Donovan family.
“Ray Donovan is on track to be our biggest season 1 show ever,” said David Nevins, president of entertainment for Showtime Networks, in a release. “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.”
