Leverage Lives OnLeverage Lives On and There’s More to Come



The Leverage fans have spoken and in huge numbers. Dean Devlin has always put the fans first,especially with the  hit TNT original series. The fact that the network has cancelled the show does not mean that Leverage is dead. Electric Entertainment owns the Leverage franchise, which gives Devlin a lot more flexibility to revive the series in many ways. Tim Hutton, Gina Bellman, Christian Kane, Aldis Hodge and Beth Riesgraf all agreed to continue if the show does go on.




Dean Devlin revealed his plans for Leverage to Deadline’s Dominic Patten on January 11th, 2013:

“We’re going to try to shop it around now and see if there is any other interest elsewhere,” the executive producer told Deadline today. That elsewhere could include a feature film version of the drama. “That would be fun to do. That’s definitely a possibility,” said Devlin, who is scheduled to make his own feature directorial debut with a global disaster film written by himself and Paul Guyot. “I have a giant pile of stories we still wanted to tell. Creatively the show was far from exhausted.” Devlin says of the drama.


Deadline’s Dominic Patten points out that Leverage fans were far from exhausted as well. Leverage is the first cancelled Television series to ever win a People’s Choice award.


“One of the great things about this show is that it was produced independently so we can control its destiny to some degree. So, if we don’t survive as a TV series, who knows? We’ve already started a series of {Leverage} books so maybe there’s a movie down the line. Maybe an Internet series, comic books, I don’t know. We’re wide open to all ideas,” Devlin says.



So all of my fellow Leverage fans, please let Dean Devlin and the Leverage cast, crew and writers know how you would receive Leverage as a feature film. Would you go and shell out the bucks to see Leverage on the Big Screen? Or would you prefer a series of TV movies?


Leverage has gone into syndication and past episodes can be viewed on ION television, TNT and CBS owned stations as well as some stations owned by Sinclair and Hearst Broadcast groups. Check your local programming for dates and show times. The first Leverage novel, “The Con Job,” is available as a mass market paperback at
