Ray Donovan has been wowing audiences with another rip-roaring season but will the show be back for an eighth series?
It's never a nice feeling, not knowing whether one of your favourite TV shows will be back for another series.
And while fans have been able to enjoy another rip-roaring batch of episodes, starring acclaimed actors such as Liev Schreiber, Alan Alda and Jon Voight, there is the lingering doubt that the show will not return to our screens for an eighth season...

Ray Donovan's season 7 return
Ray Donovan returned to our screen for its seventh season in November 2019 and the final few episodes of the 10-episode season are upon us.
Season 7 has seen Ray come up against one of his toughest challenges yet as tensions between him and his father escalate further as the Donovans are implicated in a murder enquiry.
And yet, despite still being a crowd-pleaser, fans were still left wondering if season 7 will mark the end for the Showtime and Sky Atlantic series.

Will there be a season 8 of Ray Donovan?
The eighth season of Ray Donovan has not been confirmed, but Liev Schreiber has fans hopeful!
Deadline notes that the actor wrote on Instagram: “It seems like your voices have been heard... Too soon to say how or when, but with a little luck and your ongoing support, there will be more Ray Donovan.”
That's all we need to hear!
As earlier highlighted by Variety, a statement from Showtime expressed: “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. 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.”
So, it looks like it may just find a new home.

SHO cancelled Ray Donovan after a great season— The Great Fowler (@TheGreatFowler) February 5, 2020
I did not see that coming
I bet it gets picked up elsewhere.
The show needs a conclusion@netflix ???
Ray Donovan was one of the best shows on TV. I would rank it up there with The Sopranos and Breaking Bad. The acting and story lines were top notch. The writing was riveting. I cancelled my Showtime subscription - no Ray, no Toni. God bless!— ToniM (@tonib67) February 5, 2020
I don't watch the show, but this is a shabby way to treat fans who have tuned in for seven seasons. Dropping #RayDonovan without resolving major story threads is a boneheaded move that makes no sense for a subscription service like @Showtime. https://t.co/rAlrAemeGn— Ron Hebshie ️ (@RONTHINKblog) February 5, 2020
