FX Renews Damages for Two More Seasons

Damages Will Be Back — Twice!


Good news, Damages fans: FX has finally made its decision about renewing the acclaimed but low-rated drama — and it's getting not just one but two more seasons!

The network has committed to a total of 26 new episodes — two 13-episode seasons — of the series, and it's expected to go back into production early next year (presuming the writers are writing again by then, I suppose). Glenn Close, Rose Byrne, and Tate Donovan are all signed on for the additional seasons — but there's no mention of Ted Danson. Is that a clue about the ultimate fate of Arthur Frobisher?

I said earlier that I couldn't imagine how the show could get a second season, but the season finale made me change my tune; I loved the dynamic it set up between Close's Patty Hewes and her young, now not-so-innocent associate, Ellen (Byrne), and I'm thrilled we'll get to see it play out. Do you think Damages can keep up its dramatic twists for two more years?

I would not have watched this show except for a few posts you did on it. I have to say it was an exceptional show and I look forward to seeing the next season. I don't think there will be a reason to bring Frobisher back because the real meat should be Ellen's character trying to get the goods on Patty.

Terrific! Watched this show on my ipod in the dark. Sometimes it was creepy and it was always entertaining. Thrilled they're coming back.

Finally, I was getting restless. I needed some good news after a horrible week. I loved the first season this show. It has a great cast. Glen Close can do no wrong in my book, but we have to watch out for Rose Byrne. She is on fire.

Fantastic news. Damages is one of the most creative and thought provoking shows of the new season.

Great news. Frobisher was shot but I don't think he actually died--yet. If Ted Danson doesn't sign on, Frobisher is dead for sure. The finale was well done; satisfying if the series didn't get renewed and even more intriguing if it did. Glad we'll have two more seasons to watch Glen Close.

syako — I thought they left it open as to whether Frobisher died or not. We saw him get shot, but I think he was still (technically) alive last we saw ... but it probably would have been tough for him to get out of that field.

And, yes, per the finale, I definitely think this show can keep going on. It should be interesting.

Frobisher was killed in the finale, remember?
