The Ray Donovan four years after the original showtime series concluded, a spinoff titled The Donovans is set to premiere later this year on Paramount+.

The original series, which starred Liev Schreiber as the titular "fixer," captivated audiences for seven seasons and a concluding film in 2022. Now, the story takes a transatlantic leap, shifting its focus to the Donovan family in London.

The Donovans will follow the Donovan family as they navigate the dangerous and high-stakes world of fixing problems for London's elite. The official synopsis describes them as "the most powerful clients in Europe, with fortunes and reputations at risk."

The series boasts a familiar face behind the camera: Guy Ritchie, the renowned British filmmaker who directed several episodes of the original series, will be taking the helm as director and executive producer. The screenplay is penned by Ronan Bennett, who served as writer and executive producer on Ray Donovan.

While details about the specific cast are yet to be revealed, it is expected that some familiar faces from the original series might return in guest or recurring roles. However, the focus will likely be on a new generation of Donovans, establishing a fresh chapter in the family's complex and often destructive legacy.

This news comes as the Ray Donovan franchise continues to find new life. The original series explored the intricate web of power and corruption in Los Angeles, and The Donovans promises to offer a similar blend of intrigue and drama in the international arena.

Fans of the original series and those seeking a thrilling new drama with a familiar touch can look forward to The Donovans on Paramount+ later this year.
