Announced today during the network’s TCA (Television Critics Association) presentation, Showtime has renewed both “Masters of Sex” and “Ray Donovan” for fourth seasons. Both Masters of Sex and Ray Donovan season four will run 12 episodes each and will premiere on Showtime in 2016.

“Ray Donovan” stars two-time Golden Globe and Emmy nominee 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 three found Ray adrift from his family and those closest to him, while he focuses on his business and desires to be his own boss.

The cast also includes Paula Malcomson, Eddie Marsan, Dash Mihok, Steven Bauer, Katherine Moennig, Pooch Hall, Kerris Dorsey and Devon Bagby. Joining the show for season three were guest stars Golden Globe winner Ian McShane and Katie Holmes, with Oscar and Golden Globe nominee Elliott Gould returning.

A Showtime production, “Ray Donovan” is executive produced by David Hollander, Mark Gordon and Bryan Zuriff, and created by Ann Biderman.

Starring Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Michael Sheen and Emmy nominee Lizzy Caplan as real-life pioneers of human sexuality, William Masters and Virginia Johnson, “Masters of Sex” chronicles their unusual lives, romance and pop-culture trajectory. Masters and Johnson’s 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 also stars Tony winner Annaleigh Ashford. Guest stars for season three have included Emmy nominee Josh Charles, Emmy winner Allison Janney, Emmy and Golden Globe winner Beau Bridges, Tate Donovan and Emmy winner Sarah Silverman.

“Masters of Sex” 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.” The series was developed for television by Michelle Ashford (“The Pacific”) who also serves as an executive producer. In addition, the series is executive produced by Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly, Amy Lippman and Judith Verno. Dave Flebotte serves as co-executive producer. Michael Sheen, Tammy Rosen and Thomas Maier serve as producers. “Masters of Sex” is produced by Sony Pictures Television.
