Set in Los Angeles, Ray Donovan is a “fixer” for the rich and famous. Originally from South Boston, he works for Goldman/Drexler, the most powerful law firm in town, led by his confidante and mentor Ezra Goldman and Lee Drexler, making all the problems of the city’s celebrities, superstar athletes, and business moguls disappear. At his side are Avi, an imposing Israeli, and Lena, a laconic, hard-boiled lesbian. However, Ray seems at a loss when it comes to his own family, which includes brothers Bunchy and Terry, along with his wife Abby, daughter Bridget and son Conor. To Ray, all of their problems can be traced back to his father Mickey Donovan, a gangster with the Irish mob who never protected his family. Everything is turned upside down when Mickey is unexpectedly released from prison and arrives in Los Angeles hungry for revenge, wanting money, a new life and his place at the head of the family. His arrival results in setting off a chain of events that shake the already damaged Donovan family to its core as the FBI comes after Ray and his associates.

Ray Donovan: Season 2 premieres on Showtime on Sunday, July 13, 2014 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
