"Royal Pains" Season 8 is a drama series on USA Network.

The series centers on Hamptons' newest doctor-on-demand, Hank Lawson (Mark Feuerstein, "What Women Want," "In Her Shoes," "Good Morning Miami"). After Hank, a young doctor on the fast track to success, fell from grace when he was blamed for the death of a hospital trustee, he inadvertently stumbled into the world of private medical service for the elite denizens of the Hamptons. With the encouragement of his younger brother Evan (Paulo Costanzo, "Joey") and an ambitious young woman who volunteered to be his physician's assistant, Hank reluctantly agreed to be a "Concierge Doctor" for the summer. But will he be able to treat his high-flying clients while still managing to keep his own feet on the ground?

Season 3

Season 3 addresses many unresolved questions: will Hank and Jill rekindle their relationship? Will Divya and Raj (Rupak Ginn) survive the plague scare and break off their marriage? What will become of Eddie (Henry Winkler) now that the government has sentenced him to prison, is there a wealthy Baron that will help him out of this situation?

Season 4

Season 4 finds Hank embarking on a fresh start with his medical practice and separating from his brother Evan, who also starts his own venture. As Divya attempts to reconcile the brothers, HankMed teams up once more in the face of a Hampton's emergency.

Season 5

The series is back with Hank Lawson — after spending the winter recuperating from brain surgery — ready to return to work on the first weekend of summer — or so he thinks. With their Hamptons medical concierge service, HankMed, busier than ever and Boris' (Campbell Scott) death still a mystery, Hank finds himself relying on Jeremiah (Ben Shenkman) in a very surprising way. Evan's rescue of an influential neighbor (recurring guest star Frances Conroy) has unexpected consequences for his future. Paige's (Brooke D'Orsay) work at an auction house gives her an eye-opening look into Boris' estate. A newly single Divya (Reshma Shetty) finds her plan to focus solely on work hitting an unexpected snag after the return of an ex. And a change in ownership at the local hospital brings new complications for HankMed. Callum Blue will recur this season as Milos, Boris' cousin.

Season 6

Season 6 promises to bring more fun and sun and a host of celebrity guest stars to the Hamptons. This season, Hank will return from his world travels with Boris to find that his HankMed family has moved on without him during his 9-month absence. No longer in the comfortable dynamics he left behind, Hank forges ahead to figure out how he fits into this new normal.

Season 7

The seventh season brings us back to the sun-drenched Hamptons with Hank setting his sights on obtaining what's been missing in his life, while Evan juggles his promotion with his desire to start a family with Paige and Divya fights to keep her family together.

Season 8

The 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 favorite concierge doctor, Hank must decide if his professional fulfillment equals his personal fulfillment. Evan and Paige endure challenging marital decisions and must examine what family really means to them.

Meanwhile, a number of life events complicate Divya's career aspirations. Jeremiah must choose between research and patient care; and just as Eddie has earned the trust of Hank and Evan, they discover he still has secrets that can rock their world. All the while, Boris makes a series of life-altering decisions that could change the group dynamic forever.

A special musical episode will feature guest stars Christine Ebersole and Cloris Leachman. When Ms. Newberg's life-long best friend, Annette, 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, Mark's on and off love interest Jill, Libby, and General William Collins. Additional prominent guest stars featured in the final season include Annie Potts, Teri Polo, Sebastian Roche, Dan Lauria, Constance Wu, Hal Linden, Ana Ortiz and Maria Dizzia.

The cast includes Mark Feuerstein, Paulo Costanzo ("40 Days and 40 Nights"), Reshma Shetty ("30 Rock"), Brooke D'Orsay ("Two and a Half Men"), Ben Shenkman ("Burn Notice"), Jill Flint ("Gossip Girl"), Campbell Scott ( "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," "Six Degrees") and Christine Ebersole ("Saturday Night Live").
