Showtime’s officially announced the renewal of two of its dramatic series: Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex. Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex will both be back for third seasons in 2015.

Showtime gave 12 one-hour episode orders to both series and expects to get into production on both shows early next year.

The Ray Donovan Plot:

Set in the sprawling mecca of the rich and famous, Ray Donovan stars Liev Schreiber as LA’s best professional fixer, the man called in to make the city’s celebrities, superstar athletes, and business moguls’ most complicated and combustible situations go away. Season one came to a close with an epic showdown resulting in Boston mobster and fugitive, Sully’s (James Woods) demise. Season two of this powerful drama, will explore the fallout of his murder for Ray, his father Mickey (Jon Voight) and the FBI, headed by LA Bureau Chief Cochran (guest star Hank Azaria). As the season unfolds, Ray continues to seek balance between the demands of his family, including his volatile relationship with Mickey, and the demands of his Hollywood clients.

Masters of Sex Plot:

Starring Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan as real-life pioneers of human sexuality, William Masters and Virginia Johnson, the series chronicles their unusual lives, romance and pop culture trajectory. Their research touched off the sexual revolution and took them from a mid-western teaching hospital in St. Louis to the cover of Time magazine. The series is an adaptation of Thomas Maier’s book Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, The Couple Who Taught America How To Love.
