‘Ray Donovan’ Season 2: Showtime Renews for 2014

Ray Donovan Season 2 Renewal Showtime
Showtime

Showtime’s breakout fixer drama ‘Ray Donovan‘ may not be making the trek to Comic-Con 2013 with its Sunday lead-in ‘Dexter,’ but the Liev Schreiber-fronted series has plenty of reason to celebrate regardless. Showtime has officially renewed the Hollywood thriller for a second season, to definitively air in summer 2014.

“’Ray Donovan’ is on track to be our biggest season 1 show ever,” said network president David Nevins in a statement announcing the news. “[Series creator] 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.”

Even with mixed reviews of the first few episodes, ‘Ray Donovan’ set records for the premium cable network with its highest original series debut ever, as well as providing the first freshman drama in Showtime history to improve on its series premiere ratings with the second week.

‘Ray Donovan’ stars Schrieber in his first regular TV role as a contemporary Los Angeles “trouble shooter” and “fixer” working for the city’s elite. The series’ all-star cast also includes Jon Voight as the ex-con Donovan clan patriarch; Elliot Gould as Ray’s longtime client and mentor; Eddie Marsan and Dash Mihok, playing Ray’s brothers; and Paula Malcomson (‘The Hunger Games‘) in the role of Ray’s wife.

We’ve included the (editied) series premiere, “The Bag or the Bat,” to check out below, but what say you? Are you glad to see ‘Ray Donovan’ renewed for season 2?
