"Leverage" Season 5 returns on TNT with television's coolest gang of thieves, grifters and con artists. Academy Award winner Timothy Hutton ("Ordinary People"), Gina Bellman ("Coupling"), Christian Kane ("Into the West"), Beth Riesgraf ("Alvin and the Chipmunks") and Aldis Hodge ("Friday Night Lights") star in this fast-paced, light-hearted caper drama series.

Leverage" Season 4 opens in epic fashion as the team heads to the rugged mountains of Alaska to help a woman whose husband has disappeared, possibly as a victim of foul play. More than any previous job, this one will push the "Leverage" team to the edge of endurance in one of the world's harshest terrains, where a single wrong step could send them plunging into an almost certain death.
The "Leverage" crew is led by former insurance investigator turned thief, Nate Ford (Hutton). His cohorts include Sophie Devereaux (Bellman), a brilliant grifter; Eliot Spencer (Kane), a retrieval specialist; Alec Hardison (Hodge), a gadget and technology wizard; and Parker (Riesgraf), a slightly off-center thief adept at rappelling off buildings.
Prior to the Alaska job, the team was laying low after finally fulfilling their obligation to a mysterious Italian agent who blackmailed Nate into hunting down a nefarious financier. The ordeal seems to have opened up a new side of Nate, who is more determined than ever to focus on bringing down bad guys. He is also reluctant to deal with the uncomfortable dynamic between him and Sophie after the two wound up in bed together.
This season on "Leverage," the team will face bigger challenges than ever before. They will be forced to face the moral ambiguity of what they do as Nate continues to struggle with his inner demons. Among their upcoming jobs, they will target a public relations expert (guest star Michael Gladis) who protects his clients by destroying the lives of anyone who gets in their way; a millionaire who pays to have himself moved up on a heart-transplant waiting list; a woman who profits from people's grief through a funeral scam; a big corporation out to bury potato farmers; and a group trying to kill a World War II veteran (guest star Danny Glover) who allegedly has a very rare Van Gogh painting. In addition, the team will once again face their nemesis, insurance-investigator-turned-InterPOL-agent Jim Sterling (guest star Mark Sheppard). They will also discover that someone has been spying on their activities, although the nature of the culprit's agenda is a mystery. 
"Leverage" Season 5 is produced for TNT by Devlin's Electric Entertainment. Executive producers are Dean Devlin ("Independence Day") and creators John Rogers ("Transformers") and Chris Downey ("The King of Queens").
