TNT renews 'Leverage'
TNT has renewed its hit heist dramedy "Leverage" for a second season.
The cable network announced on Monday (Feb. 2) that it has ordered an additional 15 "Leverage" episodes slated to begin later in 2009.
Timothy Hutton, Gina Bellman, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf and Aldis Hodge star as a group of sometime-crooks now doing the Robin Hood thing as they right corporate misdeeds. "Leverage" premiered to an audience of 5.6 million viewers back in December and has averaged 3.2 million viewers through its first season.
"We’re thrilled that audiences and critics have responded so positively to 'Leverage' and made the show a solid hit,” TNT programming head Michael Wright says. "We look forward to another great season of fun and exciting storylines brought to life by the outstanding cast, led by Timothy Hutton, and the incredible production team, headed up by executive producers Dean Devlin and John Rogers."
In addition to Devlin and Rogers, "Leverage" is also executive produced by Chris Downey.
The series has reliably ranked as ad-supported cable's #1 entertainment program in its Tuesday 10 p.m. ET slot.
“We had an amazing experience shooting the first season of 'Leverage' with such a talented cast and crew and with the full support of TNT behind us,” Devlin says. “We can’t wait to get to work on season two and take viewers on another adventure with Nate and his team.”
