Season 8

In its final season, Royal Pains will celebrate crossing the 100th episode milestone midway through the season, and will also include a visit to Hong Kong and a unique musical episode featuring several new and returning guest stars.

Royal Pains' final season will explore pivotal life decisions for all of the staff at HankMed, and with everyone's focus pulled in various directions, the future of the business is at stake.

After years in the Hamptons as everyone's favourite concierge doctor, Hank (Feuerstein) must decide if his professional fulfillment equals his personal fulfillment. Evan (Paulo Costanzo) and Paige (Brooke D'Orsay) endure challenging marital decisions and must examine what family really means to them.

Meanwhile, a number of life events complicate Divya's (Reshma Shetty) career aspirations. Jeremiah (Ben Shenkman) must choose between research and patient care; and just as Eddie (recurring guest star, Henry Winkler) has earned the trust of Hank and Evan, they discover he still has secrets that can rock their world.

All the while, Boris (recurring guest star, Campbell Scott) makes a series of life-altering decisions that could change the group dynamic forever.

A special musical episode features guest stars Christine Ebersole and Cloris Leachman. When Ms. Newberg's (Ebersole) life-long best friend, Annette, (Leachman) visits the Hamptons, she begins seeing every situation around her as a musical number. While Hank attempts to diagnose what is wrong with her, everyone at HankMed bursts into song and dance.

This season also brings back some of the most influential patients and characters including Divya's husband, Raj (Rupak Ginn), Mark's on and off love interest Jill (Jill Flint), Libby (Meredith Hagner), and General William Collins (Bob Gunton).

Additional prominent guest stars featured in the final season include Annie Potts, Teri Polo, Sebastian Roché, Dan Lauria, Constance Wu, Hal Linden, Ana Ortiz and Maria Dizzia.

Many iconic guest stars have graced the Hamptons during the show's run, including Oscar winner Marcia Gay Harden, Today host Matt Lauer, Grammy Award-Winner John Legend, NFL wide receiver Greg Jennings, reality stars Khloé Kardashian and Scott Disick, Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi, and NBA Superstar Muggsy Bogues, among others.

Created by Andrew Lenchewski, Royal Pains is executive produced by Lenchewski and Michael Rauch. Rich Frank also serves as executive producer along with Jeff Kwatinetz from Prospect Park. Connie Burge, Carol Flint, Jon Sherman and Jessica Ball are executive producers.

From Universal Cable Productions, the series filmed in New York (Long Island and Brooklyn) and at locations in and around the Hamptons. Throughout its run, the series travelled abroad to destinations including Hungary, Italy, France, South Africa, Argentina and Puerto Rico, and this season - Hong Kong.
