2009 Midseason TV Preview: Nip/Tuck

Nip/Tuck - Season 5 returns

Premieres: Tuesday, January 6, 2009 at 10:00 PM ET

Network: FX

Creator(s): Ryan Murphy

Starring: Julian McMahon, Dylan Walsh,


Nip/Tuck is bucking the trend. Last year the writer’s strike cut the fifth season off at 14 episodes. Where most shows continued on with new seasons, the writers and producers of the FX series went back to the stories and decided to finish up season 5. Giving audiences, finally, the full 22 episodes they were looking for.

The series picks up with the attack on Sean, which you can tell from the photos in the gallery below has left him in an altered state. He was left for dead by his former agent Colleen (played by the always wonderful Sharon Gless). While Nip/Tuck has always been one of the top rated cable shows I only catch on occasion I was pretty caught up in the first half of the January 6th return before being pulled away to go back to work at the restaurant.
