The return of the show for a seventh season has also been confirmed by the producers. Now you must be wondering what projects is he going to be seen in next? Well, below is a list of all his movies and television shows releasing in the near future. We hope his upcoming performances are as good as his previous ones.
4. Ray Donovan (2013-)
‘Ray Donovan’ is a crime and family drama which is perhaps Schreiber’s most acclaimed work in recent times. Every criminal requires a Tom Hagen to become a godfather-like character. Ray Donovan provides that exact service. He is a fixer, someone who helps rich and powerful clients get the desired results through bribery, threats, payoffs, and other illegal activities. Although Ray’s job is unsavory, he works for a powerful law firm that employs people like Ray so they do not have to get their own hands dirty.
Hailing from South Boston, Ray operates in Los Angeles, having practically made the city his own turf. Despite Ray’s unlikeable work life, he is a family man, and displays many redeeming virtues. Over the seasons, Ray’s job faces several hurdles as he operates within a strictly gray area. When his intimidating father is released from prison by the FBI, it spells trouble for Ray. The man is bent on taking down Ray and his associates, who are in no mood to let go of the most lucrative piece of business that they have.
Liev Schreiber’s performance as the titular Ray Donovan has been rightly tempered. It is a nuanced portrayal of a man who constantly questions whether morality is an absolute construct. The series has enjoyed a phenomenal run for six seasons and will be back with the seventh on November 17, 2019. We have no doubts that Schreiber will once again deliver a memorable performance as the troubled protagonist of the show.
3. A Rainy Day in New York (2019)
‘A Rainy Day in New York’ is a comedy helmed by Woody Allen. It follows two young people who arrive in New York for a weekend where they are met with bad weather and a series of adventures. Being a Woody Allen film, it will truly be magical for sure. Liev Schreiber appears in the role of Roland Pollard, an acclaimed film director who is smitten by the good looks of the aspiring journalist from Tucson, who tries to interview him. Over the course of the movie, he attempts to get the journalist to be his muse and move in with him.
The movie also stars Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Hall, Jude Law, and Elle Fanning. The filming of the movie has been completed but Amazon Studios halted its release due to Woody’s #MeToo controversy. Nonetheless, the director managed to release his movie internationally in places including Poland. Finally, on September 6, 2019, ‘A Rainy Day in New York’ made its US debut at the Deauville American Film Festival. We expect it to release in theaters by the end of this year.

We get to see the many challenges they face throughout the day, be it during practice or in moments leading up to the game.
If you want a good insight into the mind of a sportsperson, ’24/7 College Football’ is definitely the show for you. It started airing on October 2, 2019, and Schreiber is the narrator. With him guiding fans through the lives of college footballers, we are sure the series will continue for more seasons, focusing on other teams.
