Ray Donovan Season 8: Is It Officially Cancelled? Movie Is In Production

Ray Donovan Season 8

Created by  Ann Biderman for Showtime, Ray Donovan has runned for 7 seasons so far. With an amazing run in these years, the fans of this crime drama series have been hoping to see the main lead to be back in the game. Following Liev Schreiber as the main lead, Donovan, the show sets its primered for the audience. Not only the show receives great response but the breakdown of the viewership not only amaze the audience but also the cast. After successfully releasing its 7 seasons in the following years, the show is set to talk about the upcoming chapter. Ray Donovan Season 8 is a much-talked series after the popular Criminal Neo-noir show got massive success over these years. The fans of the show have been expecting the showrunners to confirm Season 8 and bring back the action on. 

The series is one of the most popular and known series of Showtime and being a signature show, it would be quite awkward if the show makers would cancel it. Season 8 of this series might get renewed after all the positive aspects we have talked about. 


Centers around  Ray Donovan who is the main lead and has been a professional man when it comes to his job. He is a known “fixer” who is expertise in Brines, Payoffs, threats, and many other illegal activities.

As the show continues we see numerous of the things that could have led to the uplift of the man and his professional world. The show also features his wife who has a complicated relationship with him. As the series continues, we will be getting a lot more things that we didn’t expect. After season 7 ends on a cliffhanger, is there any possibility of another season? I am persian;lly thinking that the show makers wouldn’t end this in the mid way. Being such a known series, I think that showtime would be investing their much more time in the series than any other. 

In this article, we’ll be talking about everything about  Ray Donovan Season 8 in detail.
