“Both Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex are quintessentially Showtime: bold, provocative, premium television with production values at the top of the food chain,” said Showtime Networks president David Nevins. “These acclaimed shows are filled with complex and interesting characters and settings that will no doubt give audiences compelling television to invest in for seasons to come.”

Both shows are nominated for Emmy’s with Masters of Sex scoring five nominations including a best actress nom for star Lizzy Caplan. Ray Donovan has co-star Jon Voight up for supporting actor during this year’s Emmys as well.

Allison Janney already won guest actress in a drama for Masters of Sex on Saturday at the Creative Arts ceremony.

Paired together since they were first announced at Showtime, Masters of Sex and Ray Donovan have seen a hike in ratings since their freshman seasons last year, with Masters of Sex currently averaging 4 million weekly viewers (live, DVR, on-demand, Showtime Anytime), while Ray Donovan averages 5 million viewers.

Production on both will begin early next year.

Be sure to catch the 66th Annual Primetime Emmys Monday, August 25 on NBC.
