Showtime Cancels ‘Ray Donovan’ After 7 Seasons

Showtime confirmed on Tuesday that the Liev Schreiber-fronted drama wouldn't be again for Season 8, telling TVLine in a press release, "After seven unbelievable seasons, Ray Donovan has concluded its run on Showtime".

We've seen the last of Ray Donovan, as Showtime has canceled the series after seven seasons on the network. "We're proud that the sequence ended amid such robust viewership and on such a robust be aware".

The seventh season of Ray Donovan averaged a 0.13 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 932,000 viewers.

He confessed: "I think Ray Donovan is nearing the end of its run". Still, in many ways, the season 7 finale does feel like a series ender by putting a bow on some of its other storylines.

News of the series' cancellation comes after Showtime's co-president of entertainment Gary Levine admitted at the Television Critics Association last month that the show was "nearing the end of its run" and would likely finish after a seventh or eighth season.

The truth is that something smelled like singe when Liev Schreiber, protagonist of the series, invited fans to request renewal for an eighth season just a few days ago. Eddie Marson, Pooch Hall, Jon Voight and Kerris Dorsey also played a leading role. Executive producers of the drama designed by Ann Biderman and produced by Showtime included David Hollander, Mark Gordon, Bryan Zuriff and Lou Fusaro.

Showtime's longest-running show, Shameless, will conclude its run on the network with an eleventh and final season. "Either way it's been an fantastic ride and we have all of you to thank for it". The sequence star, Liev Schreiber, was nominated for 3 Golden Globes and three Emmys for his efficiency, with the present choosing up a Supporting Actor Golden Globe for Jon Voight and an Excellent Visitor Actor Emmy for Hank Azaria.

Airing on Crave in Canada, season seven ended last month.
