“We’ll Always Have the Hamptons”: Royal Pains Begins Its Farewell Season Tonight

Jeff Pfeiffer

Although newer USA Network series like Mr. Robot have grabbed more of the spotlight over the years, Royal Pains has steadily been a tried-and-true audience favorite for the channel. The drama series begins its eighth and final season this month.


“It’s with great sadness, but even greater thankfulness, that we prepare for our final summer sunsets as Royal Pains comes to an end,” said co-creator and executive producer Andrew Lenchewski and executive producer Michael Rauch in a release.

USA says that the final season, along with featuring the show’s 100th episode midway through, will explore pivotal life decisions for everyone at HankMed. Hank (Mark Feuerstein) in particular must decide if his professional fulfillment equals his personal fulfillment. Meanwhile, Evan (Paulo Costanzo) and Paige (Brooke D’Orsay) endure challenging marital decisions and must examine what family really means to them.

Season 8 will feature a special musical episode guest-starring Christine Ebersole and Cloris Leachman, while influential patients and characters from the past will also turn up throughout the season.

It will certainly be sad for fans to say goodbye, but they may agree with what the producers also said, in a reference to the show’s upscale setting: “We’ll always have the Hamptons.”

The eighth and final season of Royal Pains airs on USA Network Wednesdays at 10pm ET/PT beginning May 18.
