Two dysfunctional couples rent a modern luxury desert home for the weekend hoping to sort out their messed-up lives. Just as they are about to settle in for a fun night, a neighbour turns up at their front door saying she has car trouble. And that's when the murderous trouble really starts.

Suffering from both PTSD and physical wounds, unseen but devastating, Luke wants nothing more than to forget the war, but his veteran father (David James Elliott) won't let him. At a local strip club, run by a ruthless killer (Fairuza Balk), Luke crosses paths with Michelle (Heather McComb) who leads him into a violent world every bit as dangerous and isolating as the brutality he desperately tried to leave behind in Afghanistan.

Ray Donovan is an American television crime drama series created by Ann Biderman for Showtime. The twelve-episode first season premiered on June 30, 2013. The pilot episode broke viewership records, becoming the biggest premiere of all time on Showtime. On February 4, 2020, Showtime cancelled the series after seven seasons. The show was cancelled without any advance warning, leaving fans and showrunner, David Hollander, in shock. Season 8 was supposed to have been the final season, and Hollander already had a plan in place creatively for the story. A week later, Liev Schreiber commented on his Instagram that due to fans' support and activity in media, there "will be more Ray Donovan".
