ABSOLUTELY! Leverage is probably the best action/drama/comedy TV show out there. Keep it going! Don’t stop! TV won’t be the same without it.

This is a terrific, good guys win show. Acting is great, stories are clever and interesting. This show showcases the characters and combines humor with action. I don’t watch very many programs any more, they are either depressing and grim, silly sit coms, or even sillier reality programs. Please do not cancel Leverage. It’s in a class by itself.

Leverage should absolutely be renewed for Season 6 — and beyond, and with more episodes per season. It’s just reaching its stride, the stories are getting increasingly interesting and the actors are settling into the character, the writers into how to write it and how to break the pattern; their directors are firmly based in the process of creating an episode of Leverage in 7 days…this is a show that is only becoming better. Not to renew it would be insane.

Absolutely needs a sixth season! No doubt about it. Out of all the many (too many!) TV shows I watch, Leverage is definitely my number one. Superior storytelling and acting and, just plain everything! I would boycott TNT if they ever made the stupid decision not to bring it back for another season. TNT is my favorite station for a reason (Leverage!). And if they get rid of that reason, well. No reason to stay loyal, no reason to tune in anymore.

Leverage is seriously the only thing that I find worthwhile on TV. I let my cable go when the season ends, and start it up again in July for the premiere. I buy the DVDs as soon as they come out, and can’t figure out why TNT doesn’t think they’re making money on this HIT show? Best Buy was sold out and I got the last S4 in Target. So they’re not making as MUCH money as they wanted? In this economy, it’s a wonder anyone is making any money at all. PLEASE save this show, and bring it back… Read more »

TNT, please keep Leverage going for a sixth season and many more. It’s the one show I never miss an episode of. There are still so many more stories this show has to tell. Great cast of characters, great stories and wonderful actors – it’s the best of TV!!!!
