This show MUST be renewed!
I know they could wrap things up this season-but there are so many twists and turns that. Would affect the characters…I love this show because it is different than so many on network and cable…besides Hustle ended this year and I can’t lose both shows the same year!

You people are killing me!!! YOU HAVE TO RENEW LEVERAGE!!! I’m on my knees begging and pleading TNT. ALL of my favorite shows have gradually been cancelled. I’m down to nothing but Leverage. I’m a TV junkie, and I NEED my Leverage fix. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring back my show for many many seasons. Seriously, I live near Atlanta. I will be down there picketing in front of the TNT building if y’all don’t do this soon.

Unequivocally the show needs to be renewed. Leverage is hands down the best show on TV and one of the fully trully original shows on television. So many shows now are rehashes of the same old formula – cop drama, lawyer drama, forensics show, etc. A show as high quality and entertaining needs to stay on the air. PLEASE renew leverage for season 6 and beyond!!!!!

Definitely need to have a season 6. This is one of the best shows on tv right now. So many people love it and watch it , why would you remove it? The cast is awesome! They play so well off of one another great chemistry there.

NEED SEASON 6 and maybe even beyond.
