‘Leverage: Redemption’ Revial Series Gets A Trailer
US streaming service IMDb TV has released a trailer for ‘Leverage: Redemption‘, the revival series of crime drama ‘Leverage’, albeit will a few cast changes.
In this new iteration and new world, the ‘Leverage’ crew have watched as the rich and powerful continue to take what they want without consequence. Grifter Sophie Devereaux (Gina Bellman), thief Parker (Beth Riesgraf), hitter Eliot Spencer (Christian Kane), and hacker Alec Hardison (Aldis Hodge) have watched the world change over the last eight years. Since their last job, it’s become easier – and sometimes legal – for the rich to become richer and the powerful to squash anyone who gets in their way. To address the changes in the world around them, the team finds new blood in Harry Wilson (Noah Wyle), a corporate lawyer who is looking for redemption after realizing he’d been sitting on the wrong side of the table for his entire career, and Breanna Casey (Aleyse Shannon), Hardison’s foster sister who has a knack for computers, robotics, and getting into trouble.
Kate Rorick serves as showrunner and executive producer alongside original series exec producer & director Dean Devlin, Marc Roskin and Rachel Olschan-Wilson of Electric Entertainment. Original series creators John Rogers & Chris Downey serve as consulting producers. The series is produced by Devlin’s Electric Entertainment.
The series will premiere Friday, July 9 exclusively on IMDb TV in the USA. The crime drama will debut with eight new episodes this Summer followed by an additional eight episodes in the Fall.
If you’re a little confused as to what IMDb TV is, it’s a free streaming service that is currently only available in the USA either as a channel on Amazon Prime Video or an app on Amazon Fire TV. We don’t yet officially know where ‘Leverage: Redemption‘ will air in the UK, although you would expect it to come to Amazon Prime here, given IMDb TV is owned by them. However, it is also possible there may be some differences with the international rights, which could mean they have to make separate deals outside of the US. We’ll just have to wait and see…
