TNT Gives Leverage the Axe

Posted by at 8:43 pm on December 21, 2012

Dean Devlin revealed a few weeks ago that the Season 5 finale for Leverage was being written as though the show might not be back after that point, and today that prediction has come to pass. Devlin revealed the show’s demise at the hands of TNT in a letter to fans that was posted on

The Long Goodbye is our final goodbye.

It has been decided today that this Tuesday’s episode of Leverage “The Long Goodbye Job” will be the series finale as TNT has decided not to renew the show for a sixth season.

I want to take the opportunity to thank TNT for five amazing seasons and 77 episodes of a show that has been so good to me.  I’m incredibly proud of the show and what we’ve accomplished.  Throughout this journey TNT have been the most amazing partners.  Their support and collaboration I will cherish forever.

I also want to thank everyone involved in making the show.  Tim, Gina, Beth, Christian and Aldis are the finest ensemble of actors I’ve ever worked with.  They’ve become our partners, our friends and our family.

The amazing crew who pulled off miracles every day on our show.  Thank you for everything you’ve contributed.  Your blood and sweat is in every frame of our series and I’m eternally in your debt.

And, of course, on behalf of everyone involved in the show, thank you to all the fans who’ve supported us and the show.  You have amazed us all.  We love you and thank you all.

I’m so happy we were able to film the series finale we had always envisioned and I’m happy we’re able to present it on Christmas as our gift to you.  It’s a bittersweet goodbye.

Gratefully yours,

Dean Devlin

Executive Producer/Director LEVERAGE

We here at ToT have loved the show since the beginning and are sad to see that there won’t be another season. Congrats to the cast and crew on a job well done. The final episode of Leverage airs Dec. 25 on TNT.
