NO. One of my favorite shows…Why do you cancel shows like this and leave silly ,non thinking shows in place? Shame on you.
Lisa Henrich says
WHY RAY DONOVAN?????
That show is moving along so well with all the stuff that’s happening with Ray and his family
Billy Sutherland says
I can’tbelieve whatI am reading!!! This was one of my favorite shows!!! I agree, Linda, shame on them!!!
I agree 100%!!!
Wow!!! Probably not a lot of comments, because no one would expect such a great show to be cancelled:( Are the networks being hacked, or tampered with as far as ratings??? Because I am seeing series being cancelled that I know for fact that us normal people who just enjoy watching TV!!! Aren’t really being accounted for:( For example Constantine cancelled. River monsters cancelled. Grimm cancelled. Hannibal cancelled. And many more:( I think that that networks should really investigate The ratings statistics. Since technology this is a doggie dog world more than ever!!! And if people are actually taking the time to write comments on how upset they are:( Even if only 2. Reality is that you are carving your own tombstone:(
They need to change the entire system! If they are still using Nielsen ratings they need to come into the 21st century. They also need to change the ages they survey! As a Boomer, ALL of my favorite shows are being cancelled. I guess we don’t matter any more as far as ratings go! All the crap and reality shows and bs they keep on is outrageous! There is nothing like watching a great series we a wonderful story line and Ray Donovan is one of them! SHAME ON THOSE WHO MAKE THESE AWFUL DECISIONS!!
To be fair Grimm was cancelled by its creator, As he think 6 seasons is more than enough to tell whole story

“Since technology this is a doggie dog world..”
wait, did you say doggie dog world?
really, just push a knife through your heart
Ya know.. it could just be the “last season” for Avossi — based on the information here.. there’s no way to tell the SHOW is over, only that Avossi won’t be part of future seasons. Lots of leaps and bounds taking place here.
Simon Varga says
Wow! At least the Networks could give the fans a sense of some closure; rating are misleading, sometimes fans like me don’t have Showtime but still follow it, mind you a year late, by buying the series on DVD. Hope it gets revived…
No Way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s a great show!!!! One of the very best on TV. PLEASE re-consider!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
Cydney Chamorro says
You’ve GOT to be KIDDING!!! This is one of the best shows on TV today! How could this possibly be considered for cancellation????
Please DON’T cancel Ray Donovan!!!
The only reason I got showtime was because of this show. I watch it all the time. I guess I will cancel showtime now.
This is one of the best shows on television. I’ve never heard anything but rave reviews. Please say this is just a bad dream.
Ray Donovan is a tremendous show. I hate to see it go. I noticed it says no season 6, which means one more season at least for them to wrap things up. If I’m not mistaken there have only been 4 seasons so far.
I mean 5 seasons is a very good run in general, And your correct Nancy -They have enough time to wrap up storylines as they are still filming it
GREAT SHOW! SORRY TO SEE IT GO!
ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS ON TV.
How could u cancel this show number one show on TV I know so many friends that watch this, so much garbage on TV that will get renewed idiots!
I agree with all these POSITIVE comments. Its one of the best shows on TV, and there aren’t that many. Every character fits their role perfectly! I’ve never heard anyone put this show down. I have one question; WHY?

So… an Instagram post from a girl who was a background extra as a UFC “fan” saying “too bad it’s the last season” is the source of this story? Very weak…
One of the best shows on Showtime. I guess I have no use for Show Time anymore……Thanks for your non thinking, end results……

I think it’s a good decision to end with season 5. I mean how much more can that family really go through? They have been through so much, it’s time for things to come to an end. It was such an amazing series, & I too really hate to see it come to an end, but it’s time. Thanks Showtime for giving us Ray Donovan!
Alan Dvorkis says
I am sad to hear that. With the son/dad relationship evolving into something very interesting, the show had a chance to veer into an entirely different direction while still maintaining the essence of the show. Very sad to read.
