Ray Donovan is not the kind of guy you fire. More than a few of his friends have woken up to a dead body next to them, and even more than that count themselves lucky to wake up at all. Showtime knows this as Ray Donovan season 7 got the go-ahead, will according to Deadline.
The series, which stars Emmy and Golden Globe Award nominee Liev Schreiber as Ray Donovan, saw its setting change from Los Angeles to New York state in season 6. Season 7 will remain in New York.
Donovan moved to New York after his life was saved by a Staten Island cop named Mac, played by Domenick Lombardozzi. The former Boston mobster stayed for the pizza, and got friendly with media mogul Sam Winslow (Susan Sarandon), who wants Anita Novak (Lola Glaudini) to be the next mayor. Ray is a “fixer.” He does the dirty work for top power players.
Ray’s father Mickey (Jon Voight) is hunting for Ray on a mission of revenge. Ray’s daughter Bridget (Kerris Dorsey) told her father to put some distance between himself and his father because of the chaos he brings to most situations. It makes sense. Mickey was safer in jail, even after he ratted out everyone who put him there.
