This band is sticking together. IMDb TV has renewed the Leverage: Redemption TV series for a second season. The first season of 16 episodes was released in two parts, in July and October of this year. Season two is expected to launch at some point in 2022.
A continuation of the 2008-15 Leverage TV show. The Leverage: Redemption series stars Gina Bellman, Aldis Hodge, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf, Noah Wyle, and Aleyse Shannon. Since we last saw them, accomplished British grifter Sophie Devereaux (Bellman), expert thief Parker (Riesgraf), hitter Eliot Spencer (Kane), and geeky computer hacker Alec Hardison (Hodge) have watched the world change. It’s become easier — and sometimes legal — for the rich to become richer and the powerful to squash anyone who gets in their way. To address the changes in the world around them, the team finds new blood with corporate lawyer Harry Wilson (Wylie) and Breanna Casey (Shannon), Hardison’s foster sister who has a knack for computers, robotics, and getting into trouble. Together, this group of reformed pros puts their unique skills to good use by helping ordinary people fight back against corporate and governmental injustices.
Here’s the second season renewal announcement:
The Leverage Crew Steals a Second Season on IMDb TV
Fan-favorite series Leverage: Redemption has been picked up for another season on Amazon’s free streaming service
CULVER CITY, California – IMDb TV, Amazon’s premium free streaming service, announced that it has renewed the heist drama series Leverage: Redemption for a second season. All 16 episodes of the first season of Leverage: Redemption are available to stream exclusively on IMDb TV. Additionally, all five seasons of Leverage are also available to stream exclusively on the service.
The rich and powerful take what they want, and the Leverage team has reunited to take them down. Sophie Devereaux (The Grifter), Parker (The Thief), Eliot Spencer (The Hitter), and Alec Hardison (The Hacker) watched the world change over the last eight years. It had become easier – and sometimes even legal – for the rich to become richer and the powerful to squash anyone who got in their way. The Leverage team found new blood in Harry Wilson, a corporate lawyer looking for redemption after realizing he’d been sitting on the wrong side of the table for his entire career, and in Breanna Casey, Hardison’s foster sister who has a knack for computers, robotics, and getting into trouble.
“Bringing back these characters has been a dream come true, and working with such incredible people as the team at IMDb TV has been an absolute pleasure. So excited we get to do it all over again,” said Electric Entertainment’s Dean Devlin, co-showrunner and executive producer of Leverage: Redemption.

We look forward to our continued partnership with Electric Entertainment and providing viewers another season of the fan-favorite crew and their spirited heists.”
Season One of Leverage: Redemption starred Gina Bellman as Sophie Devereaux, Beth Riesgraf as Parker, Christian Kane as Eliot Spencer, Aldis Hodge as Alec Hardison, Noah Wyle as Harry Wilson, and Aleyse Shannon as Breanna Casey. Kate Rorick served as co-showrunner and executive producer, alongside co-showrunner and executive producer Dean Devlin, and executive producers Marc Roskin and Rachel Olschan-Wilson of Electric Entertainment.
