Report: FX’s ‘Damages,’ One of the Best Shows on TV, Won’t Be Back

Jul 6, 2010  •  Post A Comment

 TV Guide’s Matt Roush reports that "Damages," the award-winning legal drama starring Glenn Close, is not coming back for a fourth season.

Writes the well-repsected Roush: "After the first year, FX gave the show two seasons to catch on, and while season 3 was a vast improvement over 2 in terms of quality and story, it didn’t draw an audience big enough to justify the expense of a star-heavy show filmed in New York. This was a business, not a creative, decision."

Back in April EW’s Michael Ausiello wrote that the producer of ‘Damages," Sony Pictures Television, was talking to DirecTV about possibly partnering with FX on a fourth season of the show, a la DirecTV did with NBC and "Friday Night Lights."

During its run "Damages’ was critically acclaimed and won four Emmys (two for star Glenn Close) and a Golden Globe Award (also for Close).


  1. CBS should pick up the show. Hey Les, give it some consideration. It’s too good of a show to go away!

  2. The reason to renew is Zach Booth.

  3. “Law & Order,” “Damages” … what’ll be next: “Mad Men”?

  4. Interesting article, I can’t say I agree with all you say, but it seems well thought out.
