Season 7 of Royal Pains features favorite characters Hank, Evan, Paige, Divya, and Boris in situations that offer the balance of comedy and drama Royal Pains fans have come to expect. The show ended with Season 8, so the seventh season was the penultimate summer in the Hamptons for the characters.
The end of Season 6 set up a few big storylines for Season 7, like the disappearance of half sister to the Lawson boys Emma, the surprising purchase by Boris of the hospital, and the state of Hank’s always difficult love life.
Like other seasons, this season was filmed on location on Long Island and features many shots of the gorgeous beach shorelines. In addition to the expected medical mysteries for intrepid doctor Hank to solve, Season 7 has some big family changes for Evan and Paige, legal troubles for Divya, and some ups and downs in the romance department for Hank. After some time away, fan favorite Boris also plays a pretty big role in Season 7. After Boris purchases Hamptons Heritage, there are major big changes at HankMed that the characters all respond to in their own ways.
Some guest stars and background actors in Season 7 were portraying who they are in real life, including members of the Southampton Fire Department and transgender actress Nicole Amber Maines.
Unlike previous seasons of Royal Pains that had 12-18 episodes, Season 7 only has 8 episodes. The shorter episode count for seasons 7 and 8 was a decision made based on the planned ending of the show after Season 8 and the desire to hit the coveted 100-episode mark. Season 7 sets up Season 8, the show’s final season, perfectly.
The Royal Pains Season 7 premiere was on USA Network on June 2, 2015.
