FX spring schedule includes 'Damages' return, 'Nip/Tuck' finale
'Archer,' 'Justified' and 'Louie' premieres also set for spring on FX
FX has set a busy schedule of spring premieres including the final season of "Nip/Tuck," a new season of "Damages" and the series premieres of "Justified," "Louie" and "Archer."
The busy new year will kick off on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2010 with "Nip/Tuck." The series finale, also the show's 100th episode, will air on Wednesday, March 3, 2010. Guest Stars for the seventh and final season of "Nip/Tuck" include Melanie Griffith, Joan Rivers, Mario Lopez, Frances Conroy, Donna Mills and Joan Van Ark.
The spring's other big return is the third season of "Damages," which begins its 13 episode season on Monday, Jan. 25. As usual, "Damages" has largely overhauled its supporting cast, with Campbell Scott, Martin Short, Lily Tomlin, Keith Carradine and Len Carion among those set to appear.
The first new show out of the gate is the animated comedy "Archer," launching at 10 p.m. ET on Thursday, Jan. 14. "Archer," a take-off on the spy genre, features vocal work from H. Jon Benjamin, Jessica Walter, Aisha Tyler and more. The series has a 10 episode order.
Things are a bit less specific for the launches of "Justified" (formerly "Lawman"), the Elmore Leonard-inspired drama starring Timothy Olymphant. FX will only say that "Justified" will premiere in March.
Also vague is the launch for "Louie," starring beloved stand-up star Louis C.K. FX will only say that that one is set for sometime in the spring.
FX has ordered 13 episodes of both "Justified" and "Louie."
