On the second season of Showtime's Ray Donovan, Liev Schreiber's titular Hollywood fixer will have to find a way to fix his biggest problem: himself.
The drama's first season dealt primarily with Ray's complicated history with his father Mickey (Jon Voight), whom Ray eventually tried to have killed by Sully Sullivan (James Woods), one of Mickey's old Boston rivals.

This could, and deserves to be, FX's Walking Dead-sized blockbuster.
Showtime's Ray Donovan returns for Season 2 on Sunday, July 13 at 9/8c, and it looks like Ray has a whole lot of things that still need fixing...
