Ray Donovan's Season 5 Trailer Is Full Of Mystery And Susan Sarandon

Showtime is already packing them in thanks to the Twin Peaks revival, but now the network is getting a bit more stacked with a new season of its hit drama, Ray Donovan. Season 4 ended with the Donovan family on top of the world, but if this trailer is any proof, it's that there's always going to be a problem that needs some fixing. Check out the first trailer for Season 5 of Ray Donovan, with lots of Susan Sarandon thrown in for good measure.

In Season 5, Ray Donovan is turning his sights back to being the best fixer in Los Angeles, after taking a little detour to deal with some pesky Russians. However, any good will that the Donovan's felt won't last long, as Season 5 throws them right back into the thick of it. In the new trailer for Season 5, we find out that Ray has once again surrounded himself in problems. In addition to learning that his father and brother have been hospitalized under mysterious circumstances, Ray is now working for Samantha Winslow, the head of a movie studio played by Susan Sarandon. Sarandon joins the show in a season-long recurring role, so get used to seeing more of her in the Showtime series.

Susan Sarandon's character hires Ray to deal with a problem revolving around star Natalie James (Lili Simmons). Natalie James is causing some "big fucking problems" after walking off the set of a $3 billion franchise. Sarandon's movie studio head hired Ray because he's "discreet" and she's willing to pay any fee to make her problem go away. What exactly that means will have to wait until Season 5 airs later this summer.

Ray Donovan stars Liev Schreiber as the title character and Los Angeles' best fixer. Originally from South Boston, Ray now works in California as a fixer for the rich and powerful. Whenever someone needs someone else bribed, paid off, or threatened, they turn to Ray to make it happen. Though Ray is a great fixer, he can never quite seem to solve the problems with his family. The series also stars Paula Malcomson, Eddie Marsan, Dash Mihok, Pooch Hall, and Jon Voight.

Ray Donovan returns Sunday, August 6, 2017 on Showtime. There are bound to be a few more updates on the hit series, so make sure to stick with CinemaBlend for all your TV news.
