Leverage: Cancelled by TNT, No Season Six

leverage last episodeTNT has officially cancelled Leverage after five seasons on the air. The action series will conclude its run on Tuesday, Christmas Day. Thankfully, the show about modern Robin Hoods will have a suitable ending.

Executive producer Dean Devlin recently wrote an open letter to fans. He penned, “As of the writing of this letter, we still do not know if there will be a season six of our show… Because of this uncertainty, John Rogers and I decided to end this season with the episode we had planned to make to end the series, way back when we shot the pilot. So, the episode that will air on Christmas is, in fact, the series finale we had always envisioned.”

Here’s TNT’s official statement about the cancellation:

TNT’S “LEVERAGE” COMING TO AN END

TNT’s Leverage has thrilled audiences with its delightfully intricate plots, its “stand up for the little guy” attitude and its terrific performances from stars Timothy Hutton, Gina Bellman, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf and Aldis Hodge. But after five wonderful years, it’s time to say goodbye. Leverage will come to a close on Christmas, Tuesday, Dec. 25, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), with a series finale that stands as one of the show’s best episodes.

We are honored to have worked with executive producer Dean Devlin, Electric Entertainment, creators John Rogers and Chris Downey, and all the cast and production crew on Leverage. We look forward to exploring new opportunities to work with them again in the future. We also want to thank the passionately devoted fans of Leverage, who have been the driving force behind its success.

What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that Leverage won’t be back for a sixth season or do you think this is a good time to end the series?

    Not a smart move to cancel a great show like this its a shame please come out with at least one more season to have some more closure or do what prison break did make a two hour episode to end it wish more shows whould do that

    You are crazy to cancel this show. Very family-friendly. No crazy sex and over the top violence. In fact, the only harm that I see comes from a knock out. Nothing more than we saw from the A-team back in the day. Love the show!!!

    YES I TOTALLY THINK IT SUCKS THAT WE WILL NOT BE GIVING YOU ANOTHER SEASON, I PERSONALLY THINK IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS ON TV. THAT BULLSHIT. TNT SUCKSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

    Another 5 seasons please. If not, then at least give us a couple of spinoffs. Perhaps the Leverage team can “mentor” some new teams in other cities???

    This was one of my favorite shows, I am sorry to find it will not be returning. I had a feeling when I saw the Christmas show that that was it, I am sorry my feelings were right. It took me quite a bit of hunting to find this out, now I wish it were not true!
