Showtime has released the trailer for seventh season of its award-winning series Ray Donovan, starring Golden Globe nominee Liev Schreiber.
The show, created by Ann Biderman, revolves around Ray Donovan, a former South Boston thug turned “fixer” for Hollywood’s elite. Known as the go-to guy in LA by celebrities, athletes and business moguls who want to make their problems disappear, he often finds himself haunted by his past.
The trailer gives viewers a glimpse into the new challenges Donovan faces. According to the official synopsis, “Between NYC Mayor Ed Feratti (Zach Grenier), an unrelenting NYPD officer hunting for the truth and clients old and new, Ray struggles to find the balance between fixing for clients and fixing himself. And when Feratti’s corruption brings a piece of Mickey’s past (Jon Voight) back to New York, Ray is forced to seek answers to long-buried questions.” One of the scenes features him during a session with Dr. Amiot (Alan Alda), who asks him “You’re really pretty angry at your father, aren’t you?” “It’s a long story,” he replies.
Season 7 will also see some cast additions. Josh Hamilton will play Kevin Sullivan, a billionaire mogul whose shady operations will have implications for Ray’s business, Kerry Condon will portray Molly Sullivan, Kevin’s sister and manager of the Sullivan family’s high-profile businesses, and Louisa Krause will portray Liberty, an alluring healer and provider of alternative medicine who offers Terry the aforementioned healing opportunity.
The soundtrack music is the 2017 single “Violence” by American indie rock band The Unlikely Candidates, from their 2017 EP “Bed of Liars”.
Season 7 of Ray Donovan premieres on Sunday, November 17.
