Leaving Soon


By Rashmi Goel

Damnation is a USA Network / Netflix co-production that will be departing Netflix in January 2023 as an original series. During the Great Depression in 1931, Damnation is a film that follows Seth Davenport, a man whose past has been violent, as he gathers a congregation of townspeople to stand up against greedy industrialists, corruption in the local bank, sheriff's office, and newspaper. The film is set in 1931 amidst the American labor wars. In contrast, Davenport is opposed by Creeley Turner, an ex-con who works for the Pinkerton National Detective Agency, and who has been hired by a rich industrialist in order to stop Davenport's strike from taking place. It is unknown to the townspeople and industrialists that Creeley and Seth are estranged brothers. As part of the cast of Damnation, Killian Scott, Logan Marshall-Green, Sarah Jones, Chasten Harmon, Christopher Heyerdahl, Melinda Page Hamilton, and Joe Adler provided their talents.

The series was produced by NBC Universal for USA Network, and Netflix acquired the exclusive global rights for the show and is co-producing it with NBC Universal. The underlying rights to the series, however, are owned by NBC Universal. A season of the series landed on the platform on November 7th, 2017. Unfortunately, the show only lasted for one season, but it is something that we highly recommend watching after watching the first season. There is a possibility that USA Network did not think the series was popular enough to warrant continuing it because the show was canceled one week after its season 1 finale. What is even worse is that Netflix may well have had its own data suggesting that it should not continue offering the service in the first place.
What Is The Damnation Series Based On?
There was a campaign for a farm strike in the early 1930s by the Farmers' Holiday Association which was the inspiration for this story; the location in the series is Plymouth County, Iowa at the time in which the strike and related events took place in the county seat of Le Mars, Iowa, as well as rural areas of the county starting in early May 1932. During this period, penny auctions became a common tactic used by farmers to raise money, as well. During the same time, a coal miners' strike took place in Kentucky, which has become known as the Harlan County War or Bloody Harlan, and it forms the basis for that element of the plot as well. Florence Reece and Sheriff J. H. Blair were two historical characters. "Which Side Are You On?" by Reece (performed in the second episode) is based on Sheriff Blair's actions during the Harlan County War. In the 1930s, the Pinkerton Detective Agency, which employs Creeley Turner, and the William J. Burns International Detective Agency, which employs Connie Nunn, focused on strikebreaking. This villainous vigilante group in Damnation is based on a 1930s fascist paramilitary group with the same name. Minorities in the Midwest were terrorized by the Black Legion, which targeted labor organizers and striking workers in particular.
