Tv Season Info

Season 5 of the drama series opens with Ray (Liev Schreiber) undergoing treatment for his anger issues, which put him at odds with his family. Meanwhile, his father and brothers prepare for Terry's (Eddie Marsan) wedding, not without running into problems. Bridget (Kerris Dorsey) has a secret and mysterious new friend; and Conor (Devon Bagby) adjusts to life at military school.

Critic Reviews for Ray Donovan Season 5

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

It's a risky choice, but the risk looks like it could pay off as this is the most promising season premiere of Ray Donovan since the series began.

As the season rolls on, the answers will come, but for now we'll have to settle for the lack of clarity. Just when you think you're out, Ray Donovan pulls you right back in.

Look for dad Mickey (Jon Voight) to provide his usual complications.

Aug 14, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

C. Thomas Howell was, at first, unrecognizable to me as Ray's court-appointed therapist, but behind that beard, he does excellent work.

Aug 8, 2017 | Full Review…

I was dreading the return of the show, but somehow, it's back to being a show I look forward to on a weekly basis.

Audience Reviews for Ray Donovan: Season 5

    A fantastic change for the Donovan's. They're breaking new ground and taking some risks. I love where the show is going and it's new potential.

    Season 5 (through the first several episodes) is a disappointment. Disjoined (in places incoherent) and rather sad, Season Five is quite the let down. Following the first four seasons, culminating in a dynamic and feel good Season 4 finale, Season Five is a buzz kill.
  • Dec 06, 2018
    Great series. Season 5 sucks. Bad scripts, directing, and editing. Fire everyone involved for taking a good formula and screwing it up.
  • Oct 26, 2018
    Season 5 seems like a totally different concept of what this series was about. It's slow and for me very frustrating. Flashback after flashback and being halfway through this series I'm tired of the focus on one person’s depression and the passing of a cast member. So far midway through the series what they wanted to say could have been done in one episode. It's repetitive and frustrating not to mention disappointing. I hope I can make it to the end. The main premise of Ray Donovan as a series is gone
  • Feb 15, 2018
    Jon Voight continues to do great work on this show.
  • Dec 31, 2017
    Awful...ruined a great show with flashbacks and little action. Plot was overly complicated for no need.
  • Nov 03, 2017
    Damn yo. I'm half way through season 5 episode 2 and I just closed it down at the Vegas dinner season because I realized how effing bored I was. If a series has reached 5 seasons, usually I'll keep watching despite the showing turning into crap because of emotion and time invested already (EG. Walking Dead). But not this one though. This crap is painful and I value my time too much. What a massive disappointment. :(

    A great show went bad! So disappointed in Season 5. Writer changed for the worse....bring back the Season 1-4 writers!
  • Oct 28, 2017
    Seems like it might be the best season so far.
  • Oct 19, 2017
    A little bit to much drama, but still very exiting
