“Ray Donovan” will continue his work as a Hollywood fixer next year.
The series starring Liev Schreiber as a tough guy who helps the A-list out of jams earned a season 5 renewal from Showtime, network president and CEO David Nevins announced Thursday at the Television Critics Association TV press tour in Beverly Hills.
Production on 12 new episodes will begin next year, the network said.
Created by Ann Biderman, “Ray Donovan” broke ratings records for Showtime when it premiered back in 2013. The fourth season premiered in June.
The series has won critical acclaim and award nominations. This year, the series earned a second consecutive Emmy nomination for Schreiber in the title role, as well as nods for Jon Voight in a supporting role and Hank Azaria in a guest part.
Showtime has not announced a premiere date for the fifth season.
