Leverage: Scoop on the season 5 summer finale and an update on a possible season 6 renewal
Here’s some scoop on Leverage from Entertainment Weekly’s Sandra Gonzalez’s The Spoiler Room column, which was posted on 9/15/12.
Any news on a Leverage renewal? — @allisonyoung
No. But how about we bug Aldis Hodge about it again? Join him (and posssssssibly another guest!) for a summer finale live-chat on Sunday night! The live-blog kicks off right here (on EW’s ViEWer) at 9 p.m. ET. I’ll be on-hand for the first hour of the finale. Then, at 10p.m. ET, Hodge — and maybe a mystery guest! — will take over during the second hour. No need to RSVP. Just come ready to party.
TNT and creators John Rodgers and Chris Bellman have done such fantastic work on this series, I really don’t understand why TNT his hesitant in giving Leverage a sixth and seventh year. Might as well for that that 100 episode syndication mark now.
Plus, the fan base for this show a feverish. Not only that, but ratings were up half a million viewers from last season. Sure Leverage ratings dipped from season 2 to season 3, but were back up in a big way this year. That should be a sign to TNT for renewal.
Leverage is also TNT’s number one series DVD/BluRay performer. So, I guess we’ll have to wait a few more weeks before we get the season 6 news. Still if your a fan, don’t be worried as I mention about the show is trending up and is established, I’ll be shocked if it’s not renewed.
The new Leverage, 5×09 ‘The Frame-Up Job,’ will premiere tomorrow Sunday Night, September 16, 2012 on TNT. Leverage stars Timothy Hutton, Gina Bellman and Christian Kane.
