Leverage: Redemption, the IMDb TV original series, is just over a month away and another trailer has dropped, answering a couple questions (or misleading us with clever editing). Based on the trailer it seems ‘Leverage International’ has expanded with 12 active teams, but who is leading it? Hardison and Parker ask Sophie for help with “just one job,” but we all remember how that “just one” line worked out in the original series.
Luckily for us viewers, it looks like the band’s getting back together!
Watch the new extended trailer below and catch the series, when 8 episodes drop for free on IMDb TV, July 9th 2021.
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.
