NEW YORK (AP) - “Damages,” the award-winning, critically acclaimed legal thriller, has won a reprieve after three low-rated seasons on the FX network.

DirecTV and Sony Pictures Television announced Monday that the drama series will return for 20 episodes spanning two more seasons. Emmy-winning Glenn Close, Rose Byrne and other stars will return for the new episodes. They will be produced early next year and air exclusively on DirecTV’s satellite service.

DirecTV also will have the rights to air the previous three seasons of “Damages,” the companies said.

The series, which was not expected to be renewed by basic-cable network FX, has won a Golden Globe award, four Emmys, and recently landed five Emmy nominations.
