Susan Sarandon Returning to 'Ray Donovan' as Series Regular
Susan Sarandon is returning to Ray Donovan — and this time, the actress is sticking around.
The Oscar-winner will reprise the role of studio head Samantha Winslow in the Showtime drama's upcoming sixth season after appearing on seven episodes during the 2017 run.
Season six marks one of big changes for the drama about the troubled fixer. Production has relocated from Los Angeles to New York, with filming getting underway this month. Sarandon's return seemed all but assured with the way the last season ended, with her character one of the last standing clients of Liev Schreiber's titular Donovan.
The actress has been an increasingly familiar presence on TV of late, earning raves for her portrayal of Bette Davis on Ryan Murphy's Feud and lending her voice to multiple animated projects, including Netflix's Neo Yokio.
Sarandon is repped by UTA.
