    Please keep Leverage on the air. This is absolutely my favorite tv show. I have started collecting the dvd’s so I can watch this show over and over again. They seem to cancel the best shows and keep the crappy ones on. I watch TNT just for Leverage, Major Crimes and Rizzoli & Isles. These shows are my drugs….I’m so addicted to them. LEAVE LEVERAGE ON THE AIR PPPLLLEEEAAASSSEEE!!!!!!!!

  4. Fred says

    Well. It’s a done deal. TNT has decided to cancel Leverage. I am very sorry to see one of my favorite TV shows disappear. I sure won’t miss the final episode on Christmas Day.

    In a time where television is filled with horrible reality shows and sitcoms with punchlines my 6 year old can guess. Leverage is so far above the rest of these shows it is staggering to think that there is a question as to whether or not continue onto Leverage season 6. I am a single dad of two boys, 6 and 10, and Leverage is the only show that we watch together as a family. The writing is amazing, the sets and costumes are great, the cast has amazing chemistry together, and overall it is just an enjoyable show that I would be extremely disappointed not to see another season from.

    I loved the 1st 4 seasons of leverage. The 5th season, altho better than anything else on the tv, simply does not measure up to the previous seasons. Let it go before it goes downhill ant further.

  7. says

    I have been anxiously waiting for the announcement of the renewal of Leverage. I love love love this show. My teenagers watch it too and last year when my mom came for a visit we watched a marathon of Leverage that I had saved on my DVR…please don’t end it for all of us. Its a great show with a fun twist!

  8. Jane K says

    ABSOLUTELY renew Leverage for Season 6 & beyond!! Great show, original & highly relatable characters. Original stories, snappy dialogue, characters we really pull for – best, most clever thing out there!!!

  9. Chris Blystone says

    TNT has done a great job over the last several years with some great series. In My opinion, leverage has been one of the bests. Need to canciel Falling skies, but not ANYTHING else. And stop these 5 and 6 episode shows. Thats whats killing ratings. Play the full season!!

  10. says

    Can’t take it anymore. We’ve watched from the start, but no more. The heavy-handed political statements are nauseating.

    Don’t you think it’s odd that your “interns” are working for free, don’t like it, but are too STUPID to quit?

    Adios!

    • nubian princess says

      please bring leverage back. It was a wholesome show. No violence and true to life story lines. Leave it on which ever night has the less competition. Why do we keep on the violent shows? That is why we have so much bloody killings

  11. Donna Manning says

    Leverage is my favorite show. I sincerely hope it continues for a sixth season. I have all prior episode and frequently rewatch them. Love the gang.

  12. Pat says

    I hope the producers of this show are not even considering cancelling this show. There are so few shows on TV now that a person really wants to tune in to see and Leverage is one! The actors and the scripts are far and above the average TV show. TNT is so much smarter than the national channels (NBC, ABC, CBS) because they offer better shows for their viewers! The national channels don’t even realize that we don’t want to see stupid reality and 2 – 1/2 Men and 2 Broke Girls! TNT has had (and I hope will continue to have) some of the best programming available today — The Closer, Bones and so many more. PLEASE DON’T CANCEL LEVERAGE!!!
