When Damages returns Wednesday (at 10 on DirecTV) for its fourth season, Patty Hewes will be alone and seeing a shrink, while Ellen Parsons takes aim at her first big case against a powerful private military contractor.
Turns out three long years have passed and much has changed since that day on the dock in the third season finale when Ellen asked Patty: "Was it all worth it?" Series executive producers Glenn and Todd A. Kessler and Daniel Zelman say it's a question that will continue to be answered by both women throughout the season. They talk to TVGuide.com about the changes in Patty, why Ellen keeps coming back for more, the show's move from FX to DirecTV and their early plans for Season 5.
The fourth season of Damages isn't coming until next month, but it will be well worth the wait judging by the emotional trailers.
This season features Chris Messina as an old high school chum of Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) who suffers from PTSD. In the trailers, we get glimpses of the drama to come, including nudity of the non-titillating variety, hints of torture and John Goodman playing a very loud, corrupt and scary military contractor. We can't wait!
Season 4 of Damages will premiere July 13 on DirecTV.
"The opportunity to be on DirecTV this season allows us to explore another chapter in the lives of Patty Hewes and Ellen Parsons, and push the envelope in terms of storytelling and content," series creators Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler said Wednesday in a statement.
The show will be carried Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the Audience Network, which is the new name for DirecTV's 101 Network.
