Showtime’s Ray Donovan has been a stand-out performer for the premium network over the last two years, with the drama following the morally ambiguous (understatement!) Hollywood fixer receiving high levels of praise from audiences and critics. The fact that it sports a stellar cast including Liev Schreiber (as the titular Ray Donovan), John Voigt, Paula Malcomson, Steven Bauer and Elliot Gould hasn’t hurt either.
And as this trailer for the upcoming third season shows, it’s time for some changes:
It’s the music that sells me on this trailer. The haunting choral rendition of The Mamas and The Papas’ “California Dreamin'” transposed with the visuals and monologue emphasises Ray’s state of mind going into the third season. And we’ve also got another pair of big names appearing this season – as seen in the trailer Ian McShane will have a major recurring role and Katie Holmes will also be making an appearance. Although I doubt even someone like Ray Donovan will be able to fix Tom Cruise.
Ray Donovan season 3 will premiere on Showtime on 12 July, and I’m looking forward to it. How about you?
