TNT has decided to cancel "Leverage" after five seasons on the air. The final episode of the series will air on Christmas, Tuesday, Dec. 25.
Despite the late notice of the cancellation, fans can at least be secure in the knowledge that the season 5 finale on Tuesday will also serve well as the series finale. "Leverage" executive producer Dean Devlin explained this situation to fans in an open letter released on Dec. 6.
"As of the writing of this letter, we still do not know if there will be a season six of our show," Devlin wrote. "Because of this uncertainty, [series creator] John Rogers and I decided to end this season with the episode we had planned to make to end the series, way back when we shot the pilot. So, the episode that will air on Christmas is, in fact, the series finale we had always envisioned."
The network did not give much information in its announcement, »
