IMDb TV has announced the renewal of the popular heist drama series Leverage: Redemption, for a second season.
“Leverage: Redemption has delighted IMDb TV viewers with the perfect blend of familiarity and freshness,” said Lauren Anderson and Ryan Pirozzi, co-heads of content and programming for IMDb TV. “Thank you to the dedicated fans who have passionately championed this series. We look forward to our continued partnership with Electric Entertainment and providing viewers another season of the fan-favourite crew and their spirited heists.”
Season 1 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.
In the follow up to the original show the rich and powerful take what they want, and the Leverage team has reunited to take them down. Grifter Sophie Devereaux, thief Parker hitter Eliot Spencer and hacker Alec Hardison 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 realising 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.
Kate Rorick served as co-showrunner and executive producer in Season 1, alongside co-showrunner and executive producer Dean Devlin, and executive producers Marc Roskin and Rachel Olschan-Wilson of Electric Entertainment. John Rogers and Chris Downey served as consulting producers.
All 16 episodes of “Leverage: Redemption” are available to stream on IMDb TV. All five seasons of the original show are also available on the streaming service.
