TNT announced in a press release last week that it has renewed the crime caper drama Leverage for a third season, ordering 15 episodes of the series. Leverage is currently airing on Wednesdays at 9 PM (ET/PT); it airs its summer finale on September 9th and will return with the final episodes of the second season later this year. The third season is scheduled to debut next summer.
Leverage stars Timothy Hutton as Nate Ford, a former insurance investigator determined to bring down the kind of corrupt bigwigs whose neglect led to the death of his son. His highly skilled team includes Sophie Devereaux (Gina Bellman), a grifter who uses her acting skills to corner her marks; Eliot Spencer (Christian Kane), a “retrieval specialist” with bone-crunching fighting skills; Alec Hardison (Aldis Hodge), a gadget and technology wizard who keeps the team connected and informed; and Parker (Beth Riesgraf), a slightly off-center thief adept at rappelling off buildings or squeezing into tight places.
The first season of Leverage is available on DVD from Mysteries on TV.
