Fans furious as 'Ray Donovan' is axed after 7 seasons on a cliffhanger: 'Time to cancel Showtime'
The Liev Schreiber starrer was a beloved show, landing a slew of Emmy and Golden Globe nominations as well as winning one each
Fans of Showtime’s drama series 'Ray Donovan' are furious after the network announced that they were canceling the show after its season 7 finale, which aired on January 29. The Liev Schreiber starrer was a beloved show, landing a slew of Emmy and Golden Globe nominations as well as winning one each.
Fans are very disappointed that they will not even be given a closure or finale to tie up all the loose ends. In fact, the season ended on a cliffhanger. Fans felt that the time and energy they had invested in the show were completely wasted.
"Time to cancel Showtime. Why should fans dedicate 7 years watching your shows only to have them canceled on a cliffhanger? There should be a law than any show televised for 4 years or more must have 4 episode wrap up season," one fan said.
After the news broke, Schreiber "saluted" the show on his Instagram. They thanked Schreiber, though.
"Bollocks to you Showtime. You could at least, have had the decency to allow for a handful of episodes to round up the storylines. Thank you @LievSchreiber for being Ray. I can’t think of any other actor more suited to the role. #RayDonovan" tweeted one fan, while another said, "Looks like @Showtime canceled #raydonovan after 7 seasons. As a fan since the beginning, wish the network had told everyone working on the show that this would be the last season because the finale was DEF NOT a series finale. It's a big F U to the fans/"
Another fumed, "Showtime f***ed you guys AND the fans over. I'll be canceling my @Showtime subscription as soon as the final season of Homeland finishes airing. Homeland and Ray Donovan have been the only two shows worth watching on there."
Many said they would be canceling their subscriptions to Showtime since the whole situation was tragic. "Canceling this program will create an outpouring of fans that will contact their cable subscribers and cancel. The way you ended it without any real closure is bulls***" tweeted a fan, like many others. Some even called it a "cheap f***ing move".
