'Ray Donovan'

Showtime's Ray Donovan isn't going anywhere.

The pay cabler has renewed the Liev Schreiber-led drama for a fifth season, Showtime Networks president and CEO David Nevins announced Thursday at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour.

The series, which centers on a Los Angeles-area fixer with a complicated family, is currently in the midst of its fourth season. Airing on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT, season four has brought double-digit ratings increases for the drama.

Ray Donovan also recently earned five Emmy nominations, including a best actor in a drama nom for Schreiber, a best supporting actor mention for Jon Voight and a best guest actor in a drama nom for Hank Azaria.

Paula Malcomson, Eddie Marsan, Dash Mihok, Pooch Hall, Steven Bauer, Katherine Moennig, Kerris Dorsey and Devon Bagby co-star.

Production on the 12-episode fifth season of Ray Donovan is set to begin next year.

The Showtime-produced series was created by Ann Biderman and is executive produced by David Hollander, Mark Gordon, Bryan Zuriff and Lou Fusaro.

Ray Donovan joins Showtime original dramas Homeland, Shameless, Masters of Sex, The Affair, Billions and newcomer Roadies, the last of which has yet to be renewed for season two. In addition to the highly anticipated Twin Peaks revival in 2017, the pay cabler also has upcoming dramas I'm Dying Up Here and Purity.

Season four of Ray Donovan concludes in September.
