Damages Season Four Storyline: Revealed!

by at . Comments

As excitedly reported last summer, Damages has been saved by DirecTV. The Glenn Close-anchored drama will return with new episodes, aired exclusively on that provider, in July.

Now, Executive Producer Daniel Zelman has revealed the main storyline that will drive season four of the series.

He tells USA Today that Patty Hewes will tackle "a wrongful-death suit filed against a military contractor over something that happened in a war zone."

Known to make great use out of guest stars, Damages is casting two season-long characters:

  1. A former Navy SEAL who runs this fictionalized Blackwater and is a defendant in the case.
  2. A powerful, mysterious individual also involved in the crime.

Fellow producer Glenn Kessler adds that DirecTV is "encouraging us to take things even further than we did on FX." We can't wait to see what that means.

I can't WAIT for DAMAGES to come back. I don't have DirecTV, but episodes are online the next day. At least, that's how I'm getting to see FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS without having to wait till spring. DAMAGES won't be shown anywhere else on television. So I'm really hoping for online episodes.
That's such an addictive show.
