DAMAGES Season 4 Premiere Date Announced

Glenn Close - Damages

The fourth season of DAMAGES premieres July 13 at 10pm ET/PT on DirecTV’s the Audience Network. The highly anticipated move to DirecTV allows series creators and executive producers KZK (Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler) to explore another chapter of the series, pushing the envelope in terms of storytelling and content.

Damages follows the turbulent lives of Patty Hewes (Glenn Close), the nation’s most revered and reviled high-stakes litigator, and her bright, ambitious young protégé Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne). John Goodman and Dylan Baker will join the cast as series regulars in the new season, which also features an impressive roster of guest stars, including Chris Messina, Judd Hirsch, Fisher Stevens, Griffin Dunn, Julie White, Bailey Chase and Derek Webster.

The fourth season of Damages finds Patty and Ellen embroiled in a wrongful-death suit against a private military contractor, Howard T. Erickson (John Goodman). Erickson has made a fortune supplying the U.S. Government with security forces in Afghanistan and is protected by his connections within the highest echelons of power in Washington, D.C. Chris Sanchez (Chris Messina), a decorated soldier who now works for the security firm, is drawn into the web of intrigue when Ellen and Patty set their sights on his corrupt employer. Complicating matters is Jerry Boorman (Dylan Baker), a shadowy opportunist with ties to both Erickson and the Middle East who is intimately involved in the season-long conspiracy at the heart of the lawsuit.
