Damages gets 2 more seasons
Glenn Close, Rose Byrne and Tate Donovan have all re-signed with the drama.
There was no guarantee that Damages would get a go ahead. Ratings in the US have followed a similar downward trend as in Australia, troubled by so much plot layering. In Oz it was also compounded by too many “encore” episodes which only confused the audience.
But the show has universal critical acclaim for its dark, unnerving stories and dynamite acting performances. This vote of confidence by FX, will no doubt be reflected in upcoming industry awards.
Production is set to start in NYC early next year, subject to the writers’ strike.
There are three more thrilling eps to air in Australia on the Nine Network.
