Showtime continues to make Sunday nights awesome. The network announced at the Television Critics Association fall previews on Tuesday that it has renewed two dramas, Masters of Sex and Ray Donovan, for 12-episode fourth seasons.
"Both Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex are signature series for Showtime," Showtime chief David Nevins said in a statement. "They are emblematic of what Showtime stands for — quality, premium programming that you cannot find anywhere else on television."
Here's what else Showtime announced at press tour:
Web Therapy canceled Sorry, but your Friends reunions will have to take place on another show. The Lisa Kudrow comedy, which has aired four seasons, is "done," Nevins said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
