The Donovans will always hold a very special place in our hearts. ⠀ ⠀ To Ray, who takes care of it all. ⠀ To Mickey, who always has a plan, for better or worse. ⠀ To Bunchy, who always tries to do the right thing. ⠀ To Terry, who’s always in his brothers’ corner. ⠀ To Daryll, who’s learned what it means to be a Donovan. ⠀ To Bridget, who’s following in her father’s footsteps. To Connor, who brings the family together. ⠀ To Abby, the heart of the Donovan clan. ⠀ To honorary Donovans Lena and Avi. ⠀ ⠀ And to our Donofans… sláinte. 🥃⠀ ⠀
Schreiber added that the voices of the concerned fans are heard and that even though it was too soon to tell when the show will come back, there would be more "Ray Donovan."
He ended by thanking the show's fans who had their bats out and beat the odds in their show of support.
Many of the fans went on social media, using hashtags such as "Renew Ray Donovan," and "Save Ray Donovan," to petition Showtime.
"Page Six" also confirmed that "Ray Donovan" would either come back for a few final episodes or as a movie to lay the show's characters to rest, while sources exclusively confirmed that the show would return for a proper ending.
A source told the news outlet that the support from fans of the show is enormous and that they pummeled "Showtime," who didn't recognize the power of the fanbase and social media. The source also said:
"We're thrilled. Liev took the news very hard, he is a serious actor and takes this role seriously, not to be able to finish this character was hurting him, it was torturing him."
"Page Six" also gathered that "Ray Donovan's" Cast and Crew would likely return to set in the fall to begin shooting for the new episodes.
Many of the fans went on social media, using hashtags such as "Renew Ray Donovan," and "Save Ray Donovan," to petition Showtime, asking for another season of the show, to give it a perfect ending.
Some other fans also called on other streaming service platforms like "Hulu" and "Netflix" to take over the series. Ray Donovan premiered in 2013 and ended its seventh season on January 21, 2020.
