The Hollywood Reporter is saying that Nip/Tuck has been given the green light for 3 more seasons on FX.
The eight-figure pact includes a commitment for Murphy to continue on the hit FX series for three more seasons. He also will develop new drama and comedy projects through a three-year overall deal with 20th TV, which begins immediately and includes a first-look component with FBC.
It is almost never a bad idea to keep the creator of a show to stick around for the long haul. Also, having the security of knowing you have 3 more years should help with the shows direction.
The only part of the article that makes me nervous is that next seaons will be 22 episodes instead of the usual FX season of 13-15. I hope that this doesn't cause the season to drag.
