Damages will continue.
DirecTV, which saved Friday Night Lights, will team with Sony Pictures Television to keep the series alive for at least two more seasons, translating to 20 episodes. However, unlike the Lights deal, Damages will run exclusively on DirecTV.
In addition, DirecTV has acquired the rights to air repeats of Seasons 1 through 3.
