Leverage Redemption is a crime drama TV series that first came out on Amazon Freevee in 2021. It’s actually a comeback of the earlier ‘Leverage’ series that ran from 2008 to 2012.
Just like the original, ‘Leverage Redemption’ sticks to the same concept, where a group of former criminals puts their talents to good use by assisting individuals who have suffered injustices at the hands of the rich and influential.
Has Leverage Redemption Renewed For The Third Season?
Christian Kane, who plays a prominent role in ‘Leverage: Redemption,’ has expressed uncertainty regarding the possibility of a third season. Kane is among the cast members who returned for the relaunch of this crime drama series in 2021. The show centers on a group of former criminals using their unique skills to aid ordinary people in their fight against corporate and governmental injustices.
Alongside Kane, Gina Bellman, Beth Riesgraf, and Aldis Hodge also made their comeback for ‘Leverage: Redemption.’ While the second season concluded in late January and was available on Amazon Freeview, there hasn’t been any official announcement about a renewal for a third season yet.
All About Leverage Redemption Season 1 And 2
The initial two seasons of ‘Leverage: Redemption’ received praise from both critics and viewers. Fans were thrilled when the show was officially renewed for a third season in December 2021. However, as of now, there’s no official release date announced for this upcoming season.
In a recent interview with TV Insider in February 2023, Christian Kane, known for his role as Eliot Spencer on the series, shared that the show’s immediate future has been complicated by the ongoing writers’ strike. The Leverage Redemption team is currently in a holding pattern, waiting for developments.
The Writers Guild of America (WGA) initiated a strike on March 11, 2023, centered around issues like fair pay and residuals, particularly concerning profits from streaming services.
The duration of the WGA strike remains uncertain. If it concludes relatively soon, there’s still hope that ‘Leverage: Redemption’ Season 3 might hit screens in 2023. However, if the strike persists, viewers might need to wait until 2024 for the new season.
In the meantime, fans can revisit the excitement of the first two seasons of ‘Leverage: Redemption’ on Amazon Freevee. Additionally, the show is available for rental or purchase on various other streaming platforms.
