FX renews “Damages”

This was a show I fell in love with instantly, but because of my move to Portland this summer I was only able to watch about six episodes. I still don’t know how the first season tied up. But luckily, there’s DVD and now FX has given the go ahead for two more seasons of the time-bending lawyer drama.

Glen Close, Rose Byrne and Tate Donovan will all be back for 26 more episodes. Production will begin early next year.

?FX is proud of our status as a leader in fostering bold, high-quality scripted programming,? said FX Networks President John Landgraf. ?We commend [creators] Todd A. Kessler, Glenn Kessler, Daniel Zelman and their magnificent cast, headed by Glenn Close, with pulling off this hugely ambitious series and establishing ?Damages? as one of the best dramas on American television.?

The series drew critical praise but didn?t do as well as other FX originals in the ratings and skewed older. The first runs of its episodes averaged 2.5 million total viewers and 1.1 million adults 18 to 49.

Can’t wait to see the end of season one and then continue to watch this show unfold. Hopefully, my love for the show was more than a summer fling and we can renew our affair well into the fall and winter.
