In a recent interview Showtime president David Nevins spoke about what fans can expect from the next season of Ray Donovan.
While talking about switching writers for the show, Nevins told Collider that it was the need of the hour and that they were lookig to make some interesting changes in the story line. One dramatic change would be the fact that the next chapter might not focus on the Donovan family anymore, infact Nevins revealed that it might be about another "complicated family."
"We're going to get a little bit beyond the Donovan family. There's a season-long arc involving a complicated family, but it's not his family this time," he said. "And they have a great story involving real estate and a certain sport that doesn't have a franchise in Los Angeles, and all the machinations that are going on behind the scenes are really good."
In October last year, it was revealed that Biderman was stepping down as the head writer of the show. She was responsible for the writing of the first two seasons.
This will definitely impact the series in someway, as Biderman's distinctive imprint will be missing from the Showtime series. So on some level, fans might be in for a different take on things as, at the end of the day, the writing defines any show.
But the transition will be easy, the writer and producer won't be completely vanishing, though, she will continue with Ray Donovan in the role of a creative consultant.
Showtime President David Nevins expressed how grateful he was for having Biderman for as long as they did, calling her a "signature asset" for the network.
"Ann Biderman is a uniquely gifted writer and creator. She has done great work on Ray Donovan from her very first pitch through the first two amazing seasons. Ray Donovan has become a signature asset for Showtime and Ann will continue as a creative consultant on the show. We look forward to continuing our relationship with her," he stated.
As the show was recenty picked up for its third season, the producers are now in talks with writer and executive producer David Hollander to take Biderman's position.
The season 2 finale of Ray Donovan aired on Sunday, September 27 at 8 pm ET/PT on Showtime.
