Want to know the Ray Donovan season 5 premiere date? Showtime announced that earlier, with Episodes to go with it!
Let’s start here with Ray Donovan, which has got a slightly later premiere date this year on Sunday, August 6 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern, where it will follow some episodes of Twin Peaks, which will move into an earlier timeslot then. The official synopsis below gives you a good sense as to specifically what is coming up on the show this time around:
“The new season of RAY DONOVAN finds Ray (two-time Emmy® nominee Liev Schreiber) turning his attention back to Hollywood and his celebrity fixer firm. Meanwhile, Mickey (Oscar® winner Jon Voight) is overjoyed to at last be welcomed into Ray’s home and swears to finally mend his criminal ways. Joining the series in a season-long arc is Oscar winner and four-time Emmy-nominated actress Susan Sarandon as legendary media mogul “Samantha Winslow,” who sets Ray against her own fixers in fear they may know too much.”
Meanwhile, Episodes season 5 (otherwise known as the final season) is going to premiere on Sunday, August 20 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern. We wonder at this point how many people will know that the show even still exists by then, given that more than two years already have passed since the show first came out. The network did offer up a little more insight into what’s coming for Matt LeBlanc and company to make that wait a little bit easier:
“Several months have passed and the game show is now a runaway hit. Unfortunately for Matt, this means he is now only thought of as a game show host, his years as an actor completely forgotten. Sean (Stephen Mangan) and Beverly (Tamsin Greig) are equally miserable. Sean’s loathsome ex-partner is now in charge of their new show, The Opposite of Us, and Sean and Beverly must now endure his utter lack of humor or talent as they watch him slowly destroy their show.”
These are obviously two very different shows, but in between all of this and Twin Peaks, it feels very much clear that Showtime is doing their part right now to try to stock up for summer in the past way they know how.
