FX has ordered two more seasons of its original series Damages
KZK Productions, Sony Pictures Television and FX Productions will crank out 26 more episodes of the program starring Glenn Close beginning 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.
In addition to Ms. Close, cast members Rose Byrne and Tate Donovan are signed on as regulars for season two.
