Multiple sources have confirmed that the release is happening and that the three disc set will hit stores on Monday July 16th. I’m also being told that artwork for the set hasn’t been finalised yet, so the image on the right may not be the same as the front cover for the box set by time of release.
Sources also tell me that the box-set will include nine deleted scenes, a gag reel and two featurettes (“The Evolution of Patty Hewes” and “A Case For War: The Cast and Crew Discusses The Fourth Season). Sony are expected to formally announce the title within the next month.
In the fourth season of Damages, Patty Hewes (Glenn Close) prepares for a class action suit against a multinational pharmaceutical company, Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) returns to Hewes & Associates to pursue her own lawsuit against military contractor High Star Security and its powerful CEO, Howard Erickson (recurring guest star John Goodman).
This will be the first time that the show’s 10 episode fourth season will have been available to fans of the series in the UK. The first three seasons of Damages were previously broadcast by BBC One in the UK, however TVWise recently confirmed that the broadcaster has no plans to air the show’s fourth or fifth seasons. This comes after Sony took a similar approach with Breaking Bad, by releasing the show’s third season straight to DVD after the series was dropped by its UK broadcaster due to disappointing ratings.
TVWise’s UK Premiere Dates page has been updated with this new information.
