There will be a lot more plastics on FX this fall. The network has ordered 22 episodes of Nip/Tuck for Season 5 - the biggest one-year deal in the cabler's history - with shooting scheduled to begin in May or June. has learned that all the major players will be back and making the move to the show's new Los Angeles setting. That includes Sean's estranged wife Julia (played by Joely Richardson, who had left the show - on what turned out to be a temporary basis - to care for her ill daughter), and those creepy Scientologist lovebirds Matt and Kimber.

What's on the operating table for next season? Look for some ego deflation when Miami's hottest plastic surgeons hit Beverly Hills only to discover that they're no longer the scalpel wielders du jour. Don't expect Christian ( Julian McMahon) to accept sloppy seconds for too long. - Reporting by Ileane Rudolph
