Leverage: Redemption Season 2 Release Date, Cast, And Plot - What We Know So Far

There's nothing more satisfying than seeing the undeserving get what's coming to them. "Leverage" seemed to understand that better than many similar series in the crime drama category. Packed with intrigue, action, humor, and even romance, the series became a hit for TNT when it premiered in 2008 (via The Hollywood Reporter).

A lingering interest among fans to bring the show back helped it return through IMDb TV. The Amazon-owned streaming service saw the first season of "Leverage: Redemption" trend on social media, while also driving interest in their new offshoot of the popular film site. With a total of 16 episodes, the project brought back familiar faces and added new names to the roster of talent (via TV Insider).

Now, it seems like the show is set for a return, as IMDb TV announced a second season of the revival (via Deadline). While much is still unknown about the next chapter of "Leverage: Redemption," the team is back to what they do best. As they would say, "let's steal a new season."

What is Leverage: Redemption Season 2's release date?

As of late 2021, there is no release date for the 2nd season of "Leverage: Redemption." IMDb TV has yet to provide filming details or additional information about when audiences can expect the next new episodes. Co-showrunner and executive producer Dean Devlin isn't giving away any specifics either. "Bringing back these characters has been a dream come true, and working with such incredible people as the team at IMDb TV has been an absolute pleasure. So excited we get to do it all over again," he told Variety of the renewal.

Season 1 of "Leverage: Redemption" consisted of 16 episodes, with the first and second parts debuting months apart from each other. The staggered schedule gave fans a chance to catch up on new episodes while also getting in two binge-filled viewing sessions. It also helped fans get to know the new cast members as well as the characters added to this already established group.

Who is in the cast of Leverage: Redemption Season 2?

One of the main selling points of "Leverage: Redemption" is the show's returning characters. With the exception of one actor, the entire leading cast who originally brought the crew to life came back for Season 1, and it looks like they'll return for Season 2 (via TV Insider). Gina Bellman heads up the group this time as Sophie Deveraux. Much like her previous incarnation of the character, Bellman plays Deveraux as a larger-than-life figure who can't quite conquer a theater stage but somehow knows just how to pull off the con.

Christian Kane, a favorite among Dean Devlin's Electric Entertainment projects, portrays Eliot Spencer, a tough guy with a penchant for all things gourmet. Beth Riesgraf comes back to give Parker a new story, one that builds on her romance with Aldis Hodge's hacker character Alec Hardison. Hodge was unavailable to return for an entire season due to other projects. Instead, he came back for various appearances while writers kept the storyline going through outlets such as brief mentions or phone calls with an unseen Hardison.

The two big newcomers in Season 1 also look to return for the 2nd season, with Noah Wyle playing lawyer Harry Wilson. Still dealing with his own demons from years serving the rich and powerful, he's proving to be a valuable resource for the team. Aleyse Shannon comes to the project as Breanna Casey, Hardison's foster sister and a tech genius in her own right. While she has a lot to learn, she's been building a reputation for coming up with some pretty useful ideas.

What's the plot for Leverage: Redemption Season 2?

The grifter, thief, hitter, and hacker setup established on "Leverage" returned on "Redemption," and that's proven how some things may change while others stay the same. Sophie Devereaux brings the team (Parker, Hardison, and Spencer) back together after the loss of her husband, former team member, Nathan Ford. The grief doesn't last long as they learn there are still a lot of people who need to pay for their wrongs. While Sophie is unsure if she can do it again, the former actress takes up the mantle of team leader. Now, Deveraux is leading her friends into new cons while also coming to terms with her grief.

Not so different from Sophie is Harry Wilson. Separated from loved ones and dealing with guilt from decisions he made as a lawyer, Wilson is finding a place for himself. The 1st season ended with Wilson breaking away from the team. Season 2, meanwhile, could potentially delve into how he'll return or if the lawyer will choose another path away from new friends, as his actor, Noah Wyle, hinted to Collider.
