Ray Donovan cancelled after seven season

Ray Donovan has been cancelled after seven seasons. 

The series, which starred Liev Schreiber as the titular character, finished its seventh season in the US on January 19th.

It had been expected to return for an eighth and final run, but will now end at seven seasons. 

Makers Showtime said of the cancellation: "After seven incredible seasons, Ray Donovan has concluded its run on Showtime. We are proud that the series ended amid such strong viewership and on such a powerful note."

They continued: "Our deepest thanks go to Liev Schreiber, Jon Voight, showrunner David Hollander and the entire cast and crew, past and present, for their dedicated work.”

The show starred Schreiber as a professional 'fixer' working for the successful law firm Goldman and Drexler, whose clients include the wealthiest of Hollywood's elite. He can make any problem go away, except those created by his own family...

Schreiber's co-stars over the years have included Jon Voight, Hank Azaria, Eddie Marsan, Susan Sarandon, Wendell Pierce, Katie Holmes and Ian McShane. 

Ray Donovan scored a plethora of Emmy and Golden Globe nominations during its run.

The show won an Emmy for guest star Azaria and a Golden Globe for Voight. Schreiber has been nominated five times for a Golden Globe, three times for an Emmy.
