The Donovan clan will be back for another season and they are on the move.
The network has ordered a sixth season of its hit drama series Ray Donovan, starring multiple Emmy® and Golden Globe® nominee Liev Schreiber and Jon Voight in his Golden Globe winning role.
The announcement was made today by Gary Levine, President of Programming, Showtime Networks Inc.
Consisting of 12 episodes, the sixth season is set to relocate from Los Angeles, where it has been based for the past five seasons, to New York City when production begins in early 2018, following an intensely emotional season five that finds Ray in turmoil and needing to rebuild his life anew.
Ray Donovan is one of the network’s top dramas and is currently averaging nearly 5 million weekly viewers across platforms.
”RAY DONOVAN broke new ground this season with its deeply emotional and innovative approach to Abby’s passing, without sacrificing any of the intensity that has been its trademark,” Levine said. “We so appreciate that David Hollander is never satisfied with the status quo, and his creative plan for moving the show to New York reflects his relentless ambition for this series.”
“For our show, creatively, New York is exciting. Fashion, media, finance, theatre, culture. It’s going to present new challenges for Ray Donovan which mean new opportunities for us as dramatists,” said showrunner David Hollander. “Ray came to Los Angeles to build a life for himself and his family. They’re not there anymore. Ray’s career has changed and he is looking for a place to rebuild his life. Ray thinks he went to New York to help his daughter. He’s going to find out he’s there to help himself.”
The series fifth-season finale airs this Sunday, October 29 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
