    Leverage star Timothy Hutton has dropped hints about the upcoming fourth season.

    The actor told Assignment X that the show's team of con artists will be operating "under the radar" in future episodes.

    "The team [is] in a strong place with one another [because of the] success they've had, but there's definitely an undercurrent of concern that they've been exposed because of their success," he explained. "People are out there looking for them."

    He continued: "They have to watch their backs in a way they haven't had to before. They have to go a little bit underground."

    Hutton explained that the increased scrutiny will cause "tension" within the ranks of the Leverage team.

    "This [exposure] becomes troubling... so if anyone's doing anything that's not part of the playbook, there's some conflict between team members that we haven't quite seen before," he revealed.

    "They've got wind of a real possibility that they're being monitored [in] some of the most private places. They discover that perhaps where they live or [in] the cars they drive, somebody has a window onto their every move."

    Leverage producer Dean Devlin previously claimed that the fourth season will be more emotional.

    Leverage returns to TNT on Sunday at 9/8c.

    Anyone watching this season?

    It has had some really strong episodes - the grave danger one last week was really tense, and this weeks one in the Airport was very clever (and shows what a bastard Nate can be when he is pushed). Definitely one of my favourite summer shows.

    Season 4 is currently airing on FX, about six or seven episodes in I think. They started into season 4 straight after season 3 was finished so maybe they'll follow on with season 5 as well.

    I'd never heard of this show while it was airing, but they've got the whole thing up on Netflix now and I'm compulsively watching it all. Very fun.

    Anyone know if it will be available on a streaming service here or will alternate methods be necessary?

    It's going to be on IMDB TV, which is only available in the US.

    Full series drops July 9th.



  • Registered Users Posts: 54,996 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    It's Leverage however it's Leverage light without two of the main cast in the show.

    One not returning was flagged and the other well I should have guessed from the trailer.



  • Registered Users Posts: 66 ✭✭ Tri Oidhcheannan Eile


    I am six of the eight episodes in, and to my immense disappointment, I'll probably leave it at that.

    As said, Tim Hutton isn't involved and Aldis only guest stars for the first two episodes, so it's left to Gina (top billing) to essentially carry the whole bag.

    There's just something missing. I suspect it's Hutton's absence: his character always had a darkness to him (much like Lester's character in Hustle) which gave the show a subtle edge. The writing on "Redemption" just seems twee and needlessly moralising.

    Dare I say, at times it treads dangerously close to being a parody of itself and the villains are almost cartoonish in their shenanigans. Shame.

    Christian and Beth are still great though 😀

    I still liked it. I thought it odd that Aldis Hodge was listed as a guest star for the first few episodes, but it became clear why after that. He was definitely a loss.

    The show was enjoyable overall with maybe 5 strong episodes and 3 weak ones. The finale was a bit of an anti-climax. After the first two episodes, the rest were all standalone. I'd like to have seen Reed Diamond back for the finale instead - I think it would have rounded off the season a bit better.

    Decent overall though - I enjoyed it.

    Edit: I see there are still 5 episodes to go. I take back what I said about the finale. 🙂



  • Registered Users Posts: 66 ✭✭ Tri Oidhcheannan Eile


    Maybe my remaining episodes are two of your strong ones? 😀 I'll maybe give them a go if I can't sleep tonight.

    (I probably inadvertently ruined it for myself by binge-watching some of my fave episodes (from ten years ago) over the last few weeks.)



  • Registered Users Posts: 66 ✭✭ Tri Oidhcheannan Eile


    Seems there are another eight, @Mr E, at least according to Beth in the above interview.

    Also, no Hutton/Ford means no delectable Kari Matchett/ex-Mrs Ford 😞

    Ah that's good. IMDB credits the actors for 13 episodes though.

    I enjoyed it.

    Shows like this, Burn Notice, White Collar, etc weren't exactly what I would turn too for serious entertainment so was happy to have more of it.

    If anything their plans seemed to work better than usual. How many episodes in the original series did they always seem to plan that their plan would go wrong? In this when it did go wrong, they came up with a new one on the fly.

    Still unsure on Breanna. I liked her enough but she could be annoying. And being ready to go into the field after 1 or 2 missions seemed a bit soon. Maybe Hardison will have a bigger role in the second half, though do we need 2 hackers?

    I wonder will Nate return from the dead.


    Case has been closed against Timothy Hutton


    “Timothy Hutton has officially been cleared by law enforcement of a criminal complaint filed against him,” the actor’s U.S. lawyer Joshua Rosenberg told Deadline. “The Canadian authorities scrutinized the matter and found a glaring lack of support and proof of Ms. Johnston’s claim,

    As the first comment at the bottom of the article says "Now will this get covered as much as the accusation? Hope so, but doubt it!" which usually seems to be the case.

    Like this is the first I've read of it and that article is a month old.

    But the damage is done. The same ones who rush to "cancel" someone aren't as quick to say they're wrong.

    He lost a potential job in Leverage because of this
