The veteran drama ends after seven seasons.
February 4, 2020
Showtime announced today that Ray Donovan has completed its run and will not return for Season 8. The news comes two weeks after the long-running drama's Season 7 finale on January 19, which now serves as its series ender.
The news was somewhat unexpected given the show's continued solid performance, but at last month's TCA, Gary Levine, the cable network's co-president of Entertainment, commented that he thought it was nearing the end of its run. Many interpreted that as a signal that a final eighth season would be ordered, but obviously that was not the case.
Ray Donovan stars Liev Schreiber as the titular character, who does the dirty work for some of Los Angeles' most-powerful figures. As their go-to guy, he makes the problems of the city's elite celebrities, athletes, and businessmen disappear.

@Plop really why do we need to involve politics on this. Enough already. Not everything is associated with politics.

Conspiracy theory from The Plopster: Hollywood hates Trump. Jon Voight loves Trump. The show runners teased Micky's death more than once, including this season. His death obviously means he is off the show but they kept letting him live. Showtime execs got tired of the teasing and just axed the show.

This one makes no sense. This show was never even an "on the bubble" type show. Even the showrunner was shocked, I read. Hopefully, it gets picked up by somebody else.

I really hate that they are canceling Ray Donovan, I love this show. They seem to cancel all the good shows and put crap on that nobody wants to watch, no wonder they are losing all their viewers.

This was the only show that I kept my Showtime subscription for. My Showtime subscription has completed it's seven season run, and will not be renewed.

Ray Donovan. Great Show! But if you couldn't tell as the seasons progressed the story was running out. They should have did one more season after the wife died to end the whole thing. If you couldn't see the progression they were painting themselves in a corner.

No Ray Donovan, no showtime for me.

Ditto here. Thanks Nancy and Cheri, for contact info. After the finale of Homeland, I'm out of Showtime as well. Showtime seems to be in a original program (save, Billions) dessert with the loss of Shameless. Shameless at least gets the dignity of a sendoff. So disappointed.

All these years I devote to this program and you don’t give us an ending!

Haven't seen this season yet, I hope they don't leave on a cliffhanger. I understand every show has to end sometime but I probably won't need a showtime subscription after Shameless final season airs, no other shows besides Billions and I don't need a yearly subscription for that.
