Ray Donovan

Suzanne Tenner/SHOWTIME

The third season of Ray Donovan doesn't start shooting until January, but we're getting a good tease of what's to come.

Paula Malcomson says we'll be seeing a different side of her character, Ray's wife Abby.

"There will be more of the same madness but Abby sort of starts to have her own agenda in a really big way because we can't have her nagging Ray any longer," Malcomson tells me. "I think she's going to take care of family matters and Ray takes care of the business. So we get to see more of the matriarch."

The Showtime series centers on Ray Donovan (Liev Schreiber), a Hollywood fixer for celebrities, athletes and more. Jon Voight co-stars as his Boston ex-con father, Mickey.

Malcomson hinted that Jim, the cop Abby's been sleeping with played by Chicago P.D.'s Brian Geraghty, may be back for more. "He's cute," she said. "We might need him from time to time."

And we can't imagine we won't be seeing more of the show's graphic sex scenes. Malcomson isn't complaining. "You just jump in, man," she said, laughing. "You just jump in. You go, 'Hello, pleased to meet you. I'm Paula. Let's get into bed. Would you like to make out with me?'"

In less naughty news, Malcomson plays Katniss Evergreen's mom in the Hunger Games franchise. "It's great for me," she said. "I don't have to do a lot of the lifting on these movies so it's kind of nice to just sit back a bit."

It was announced in September that Ray Donovan was getting a third season with a premiere reportedly happening next summer

If you haven't seen the show yet, you should. There's plenty of time to catch up on seasons one and two.
