It was recently announced that DirecTV had saved Damages from cancellation. The series’ ratings have dropped and, as a result, FX said that they were unable to continue the series.
On the show, Glenn Close portrays Patty Hewes, a very tough New York attorney, and Rose Byrne plays her protege, Ellen Parsons.
Of the Damages pickup, Close told ET, “It’s very exciting to still be teamed with KZK [Productions] and Rose while going into new territory with DirecTV. Damages is a great ride and Patty is a character who continues to fascinate me. I’m proud of the show and grateful for Sony’s undying support.”
DirecTV has ordered seasons four and five of Damages, totaling 20 episodes, to be aired over the next two years.
