Get ready for more Leverage. TNT has ordered a fifth season of the Timothy Hutton starrer that’s currently averaging 4.8 million viewers, up 10% over season three.
The new season will bow next summer.
The series centers on a gang of grifters, hackers and thieves who are out to settle scores against the rich and powerful. After the show’s Aug. 28 summer finale, Leverage will return to wrap up its fourth season with new episodes in November and December.
Leverage first premiered on TNT in 2008. Besides Hutton, who plays an insurance-investigator-turned-thief, Leverage also stars Gina Bellman, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf and Aldis Hodge.
