Ray Donovan ended its fourth season on Showtime, and the man in charge spoke about the end of the series. It isn’t coming soon, but he is thinking ahead.
David Hollander spoke about the endgame for the Live Schreiber series. He said the following in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter:
“I’m beginning to seriously think of an endgame, I think it’s essential. This is a series and a story that in its inception was never designed with a grand design of where Ray Donovan was going. That was the design. And it worked in an interesting way, it was an instinctive and — in a beautiful way — disorganized show. So I’m always gentle with thinking of larger plotting for the show because I don’t want to hurt what [creator] Ann Biderman designed initially, which was a show that took wild swings and had flights of fancy. Yet there has to be a narrative to bring us to where we want to go. I’m doing the dance between the style of the show and the greater narrative of who is Ray Donovan within his family and who is this man and where is he going next? We have to reach a point with Ray where we say goodbye to him, and the goodbye shouldn’t be death. Goodbye needs to mark a time in his life where we felt like we’ve seen what we needed to see.”
He also said that he does not see the series ending with its fifth season, but he also realizes that is decided by the network.
