We're now into the third run of the Liev Schreiber-fronted drama, and the season hasn't dipped one iota since the shocking, deadly twists of its predecessors.
Donovan is a wolfish 'problem fixer' for big-money Hollywood, but beneath the brutish exterior - all guns and grunts - it's his constant struggles with his own family's failings that form the tender heart of the show. Viewers are voyeurs in the ugly reality that lies behind the glitzy mask of La, where money is the driving force for corrupt officials, hollow celebrities and violent gangsters.
Schreiber's muscular and intoxicating performance - along with magnificent scene stealing by Jon Voigt as the larger-than-life rogue grandfather Micky - powers the gripping storylines.

TV show description:
A former lawyer, Ryan (Elijah Wood) is an introverted and troubled young man who's struggling to make his way in the world. He's suicidal but things change when his neighbor asks him to take care of her dog for the day. He ends up forming a unique friendship with the pooch, Wilfred (Jason Gann). While everyone else in the world sees Wilfred as just a four-legged canine, Ryan sees him as a crude and somewhat surly, yet irrepressibly brave and honest Australian guy in a cheap dog suit.
Jenna (Fiona Gubelmann) is
It ultimately ended as a sobering account of someone’s mental illness. There wasn’t some grand mytholgical ending where Wilfred was a mischevious god named Krungel or Matdamon. Nope. But it didn’t need that. It offered rational answers for everything and even gave us answers to why Wilfred looks the way he does, or who Bruce is.
Nothing is more disheartening than a series that isn’t allowed to reach its conclusion. When Wilfred’s third season began spiralling downwards in the ratings – the season averaged only 580,000 total viewers – I became concerned FX would cancel the series
What did come as a surprise was the remake's first confirmed piece of casting - David Tennant is to reprise his role as lead male detective, though this time with a Yank twang. Let's just hope his 'Generican' accent has improved since the Rex Is Not Your Lawyer days...
But, of course, Tennant isn't the first star to become his own Us counterpart - Friday Fiver presents a quintet of actors who followed their characters all the way to Hollywood.

Mark Strong - in Channel 4's Low Winter Sun
Based on an Australian series of the same name, Wilfred revolves around the relationship of Ryan Newman (Elijah Wood) and his neighbor's dog, Wilfred (Jason Gann). Their relationship is unique in that Ryan sees Wilfred as man in a dog suit and the two have ongoing conversations. Fiona Gubelmann and Dorian Brown also star.
Wilfred's ratings have been in decline since its first season which attracted an average of 1.47 million viewers. Season two brought in 1.11 million and season three, which finished airing last month, dropped to an average of 590,000.
Season four, which will be the show's final run, will air on new channel Fxx sometime in
FX Networks announced today that the unique sitcom will return for a fourth and final season of 10 episodes… but it will do so on Fxx, the new network that is now also home to It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The League.
Stars Jason Gann and Elijah Wood will, of course, return for the show's concluding run, as will writer/producers Reed Agnew and Eli Jorné.
They took over as co-showrunners during Wilfred Season 3, which wrapped up in September.
Look for Wilfred Season 4 to kick off in the summer of 2014.
Season 4 will see original showrunner David Zuckerman return to co-showrun the series with Season 3's heads, Redd Agnew and Eli Jorne. "Wilfred's" fourth season will be slightly reduced, as it's getting 10 episodes instead of its usual 13.
"Wilfred's" ratings had dropped considerably from Season 2 to Season 3, and there was some concern that the series wouldn't be renewed. Fortunately for fans of the dark comedy, "Wilfred" will be able to have its swan song and tie up all remaining loose ends following the Season 3 cliffhanger ending.
Also having made the move to Fxx are "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," "The League," "Legit" and "Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell." Are you glad "Wilfred" will get one final season?
