It’s not going to be a very Merry Christmas for the fans of the TNT series Leverage. TNT has just announced that they are cancelling the series and that the Christmas season 5 finale will be the last episode of the series.
“Leverage has thrilled audiences with its delightfully intricate plots, its stand up for the little guy attitude and its terrific performances â¨from stars Timothy Hutton, Gina Bellman, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf and Aldis Hodge. But after five wonderful years, it’s time to say goodbye. Leverage will come to a close on Christmas at 9 pm, with a series finale that stands as one of the show’s best episodes… We want to thank the passionately devoted fans… who have been the driving force behind its success.”
Show creator Dean Devlin spoke with the news site TVFanatic about the possibility of the show being cancelled and how they would wrap up the series.
The final episode of Leverage airs December 25th at 10/9c.
