TNT is bringing back the caper drama for 15 new episodes in 2012.
August 12, 2011
TNT has renewed drama Leverage for a fifth season, which will consist of 15 episodes. The show, which follows a gang of unsavory characters who act as modern-day Robin Hoods, is closing in on this season's summer finale which airs August 28.
Leverage is the latest TNT series to receive an order for a new season. Rizzoli & Isles was picked up for a third season last week and Falling Skies earned a second season back in July. In its fourth season, Leverage has actually seen an increase in its ratings.
"While many shows decline in their second, third or fourth seasons, Leverage has defied the odds and continued to climb," said Michael Wright, network executive vice president, in a press release. "More and more viewers are discovering this weekly joy ride through wonderfully complex schemes and con games, all brought to life through smart writing, sharp directing and a terrific cast."
Season 5 of Leverage is scheduled to kick off next Summer.

I enjoy Leverage. Too many shows are vulgar and thinly written counting on the vulgarity to make the thing interesting. Leverage has good stories, well written and fun to watch. Bravo and keep it up. Thanks.

It's season 5 of Leverage and it's as great as ever. I hope there will be a season 6. I'm truly hooked on this show. I rarely watch reruns of anything but I do enjoy watching reruns of Leverage.
