'Leverage' Canceled by TNT After 5th Season
A sad lump of coal in the stockings of Leverage fans, TNT has cancelled the series after five seasons. But there will be one final present under the tree in the form of one more new episode of Leverage on Christmas (Tuesday) night at 9pm. Previously series creator and executive producer Dean Devlin had written that they’d prepared the fifth season finale as a series finale just in case in case it wasn’t renewed. So it sounds like fans will at least get the closure they want.
