Exclusive: The BBC has no intention of broadcasting the final two seasons of Sony’s legal drama series Damages, sources at the BBC confirm exclusively to TVWise.

The first three seasons of the series starring Glenn Close were broadcast by BBC One between January 2008 and May 2010, but since then the channel had remained silent about airing subsequent seasons. The BBC declined to say why they would not continue to air the series, and would only confirm that they currently do not plan to air subsequent seasons of the series. That leaves Damages fourth and fifth seasons without a UK broadcaster.

The show’s fourth and fifth season (which was recently confirmed to be the show’s last) run a shorter length of 10 episodes due to budget cuts imposed when the series was picked up by DirecTV’s Audience Network in 2010 following FX’s decision to cancel the series. Notable guest stars for the the show’s final two seasons include John Goodman (Roseanne, The West Wing) and Ryan Phillippe (Cruel Intentions). The fifth and final season of Damages is due to be broadcast in the United States this summer on DirecTV’s Audience Network.

Damages has been re-added to TVWise’s Acquisitions Scorecard as unsold
