Ray Dono­van Sea­son 2 Wed­nes­days (from 21 June) e.tv (*194) 21:30

Los An­ge­les en­forcer Ray (Liev Schreiber) is punch­ing his way back onto free TV as sea­son 2 of Ray Dono­van (2013- cur­rent) kicks off. And he’s not the only one get­ting back to their rou­tine af­ter sea­son 1 ended with Bos­ton hit­man Sully (James Wood) be­ing shot dead. “Ray is a dif­fer­ent man than the one we en­coun­tered in the first sea­son,” says Liev. “He was sure­footed but he’s gone through a tremen­dous amount since that time. He is at rock bot­tom. He’s been there a few times [Laughs], but this is a very im­por­tant time for him.” And a lot of im­por­tant things are hap­pen­ing to the peo­ple around Ray too.
