Leverage (2008-2012) is a crime dramedy which follows the exploits of Leverage Consulting & Associates, a team of heroic criminals led by a former insurance investigator. The team takes a modern-day Robin Hood approach of finding people and corporations who have committed wrongs and attempting to restore justice as they see it, using their skills to run elaborate Ocean's Eleven-style cons on their targets. Think of them as a modern-day version of Mission: Impossible or The A-Team.
The show finished its fifth and final season after TNT opted not to renew it for a sixth. However, the franchise is being continued through tie-in novels and role-playing games. A Korean adaptation titled Leverage: Con Artists debuted in October of 2019.
In April 2020, Deadline announced that a sequel has been ordered by IMDb TV, with Gina Bellman, Beth Riesgraf, Christian Kane returning as regulars while Aldis Hodge will be a recurring cast member due to prior commitments. Noah Wyle will join the regular cast in place of Timothy Hutton. The sequel, Leverage: Redemption, began shooting in August 2020.
