RAY Donovan has been renewed for a second season by Showtime.

The drama, starring Liev Schreiber as a fixer to Hollywood’s rich and famous, made its UK debut on Sky Atlantic last night (Tuesday, July 16, 2013) following its US premiere in June (where it debuted to record-breaking numbers and ranks as the cable network’s highest-rated series debut ever).

Since then, the series from Southland‘s Ann Biderman, has continued to go from strength to strength.

Showtime Entertainment president David Nevins said in a statement: “Ray Donovan is on track to be our biggest season-one show ever. Ann Biderman and the extraordinarily talented creative team, coupled with the brilliant ensemble cast led by Liev Schreiber, have produced one of the hottest new dramas of the year. We are proud and excited to pick up another season.”

The series co-stars Jon Voight as Donovan’s father.
