Release Date: 8/12/2011
TNT has renewed its fast-paced, light-hearted caper drama Leverage for a fifth season, just as the fourth season is shaping up to score the show’s biggest ratings yet. TNT has ordered 15 episodes of Leverage, with the fifth season slated to launch in summer 2012. The series – which centers on a gang of grifters, hackers and thieves out to settle scores against the rich and powerful – currently airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. (ET/PT). After the show’s Aug. 28 summer finale, Leverage will return to wrap up its fourth season with new episodes in November and December.
Leverage is the latest high-profile series renewal from TNT following new season orders for Rizzoli & Isles, which is running neck-and-neck with TNT’s The Closer as basic cable’s #1 series; Falling Skies, which ranks as basic cable’s #1 new series for the year-to-date; and Franklin & Bash, which ranks among basic cable’s Top 10 new series this summer. TNT’s top-ranked drama The Closer is in the midst of its extended final season, which will continue in the winter and wrap in summer 2012.
Leverage premiered in 2008 and has grown its audience in each of its four seasons. This summer, leading into TNT’s new blockbuster hit Falling Skies, Leverage has expanded its audience to more than 4.8 million viewers, up 10% over season three, with 1.9 million adults 18-49 (+6%) and 2.3 million adults 25-54 (+9%).
“While many shows decline in their second, third or fourth seasons, Leverage has defied the odds and continued to climb,” said Michael Wright, executive vice president and head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “More and more viewers are discovering this weekly joy ride through wonderfully complex schemes and con games, all brought to life through smart writing, sharp directing and a terrific cast.”
Leverage stars Academy Award® winner Timothy Hutton as insurance-investigator-turned-thief Nate Ford, who makes it his mission to bring down those who use their power and wealth to victimize others. Also starring are Gina Bellman as brilliant grifter Sophie Devereaux, Christian Kane as retrieval specialist Eliot Spencer, Beth Riesgraf as slightly off-center thief Parker and Aldis Hodge as gadget and technology wizard Alec Hardison. Leverage is produced by Dean Devlin’s Electric Entertainment, with Dean Devlin and creators John Rogers and Chris Downey serving as executive producers.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of Aldis’ fans! Thanks for making this an awesome first year for AHO!!!

Breaking News: TNT’S HIT SHOW ‘LEVERAGE’ RENEWED FOR A FOURTH SEASON ON TNT
The heist show starring Timothy Hutton has been growing its audience this summer by 60%
By CARL CORTEZ, Contributing Editor
THE SKINNY: It’s good news for fans of the TNT series’ LEVERAGE – it’s been renewed for another season set to air in 2011.
That means 15 more episodes of the hit heist show which airs Sunday nights at 9/8c.
“TNT has enjoyed tremendous success on Sunday and Monday nights with LEVERAGE, THE CLOSER and RIZZOLI & ISLES,” says Michael Wright, executive vice president and head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “All three shows feature terrific casts, sharp writing and top-notch production teams. We look forward to continued success with new seasons in 2011.”
LEVERAGE stars Academy Award® winner Timothy Hutton (ORDINARY PEOPLE), Gina Bellman (COUPLING), Christian Kane (TNT’s INTO THE WEST), Beth Riesgraf (ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS) and Aldis Hodge (FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS) and follows the adventures of a highly skilled team out to settle scores against those who use power and wealth to victimize others.
LEVERAGE is currently averaging 4.1 million viewers in its third season, showing growth among young adult demos when compared to the second season.

The growth is particularly strong among key demos, with adults 18-34 rising 101% vs. Live (45% vs. Live + Same Day); adults 18-49 up 77% vs. Live (41% vs. Live + Same Day); and adults 25-54 rising 72% vs. Live (39% vs. Live + Same Day).
