FX announces return of 'Nip/Tuck' and 'Damages'

November 12, 2008 | 11:37 am

Niptuck Ooh la la! FX's sexy, crazy, intricate, crazy, complicated, crazy, funny (did we say crazy?) plastic surgeon drama, "Nip/Tuck," will return Jan. 6 to complete its fifth season. But wait, that's not all: FX also announced today the return of "Damages," the sexy, intricate, complicated and, yes, a little crazy, legal thriller, "Damages." That series, which earned Glenn Close and Zeljko Ivanek Emmys this fall, returns Jan. 7 for its second season.

In the remaining part of "Nip/Tuck's" fifth season, Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh) tries to rebuild his life — AGAIN — after being brutally attacked — AGAIN. Sean and Christian's (Julian McMahon) medical practice undergoes a crisis AGAIN and Christian vows to settle down with one woman. Really?

"Damages" will pick up with Patty Hewes' (Glenn Close) pondering her next move after her unprecedented victory over Arthur Frobisher (Ted Danson). But little does she know that a man from her past, Daniel Purcell (William Hurt), will catapult her into a new legal challenge as Ellen (Rose Byrne) continues to assist the FBI with its criminal investigation of Patty and her firm.

Midseason is shaping up to be a TV fanatic free-for-all. We are already getting worried about the capacity of our DVRs.
