Damages Resurrected For Two More Seasons

Now this is a big surprise.

Despite strong reviews, FX’s ratings-challenged legal drama “Damages” was officially cancelled after its recent third season. The reason was obvious – the show was expensive while the ratings had slipped to less than a million viewers per episode.

The book had essentially been closed on the series until late yesterday when cable TV provider DirecTV and Sony Pictures Television announced they had picked up a further twenty episodes of the series spanning two more seasons reports The Associated Press.

DirecTV also will have the rights to air the previous three seasons of “Damages” and will air the new episodes exclusively on DirecTV’s satellite service.

Glenn Close, Rose Byrne and other regulars will return with production to kick off early next year.
