leverage-cancelled-renewed-season-five-tntRenewals and cancellations are coming every day lately. And we keep track of them all in two articles: cancelled shows on 2011 and the renewed shows on 2011.

But in this case something that can make every network exectuve wanting to be in TNT´s shoes. They have a great lineup, that includes the recently renewed Franklin & Bash, Falling Skies that also got renewed, Rizzoli & Isles also renewed, and many more good hours of TV.

Well, now it was time for TNT to announce the renewal of Leverage for season five.

Leverage renewal order consists of 15 episodes slated to air in summer 2012, bringing Timothy Hutton´s vehicle to our televisions for another run.

For TNT to renew Leverage was probably a no brainer, since the show posted gaining numbers in total viewers 10% up from season three to season four, and a 6% gain in the coveted adult 18-49 demo. Something that´s quite a tendency, since the show has been gaining numbers each year since the debut in 2008.

Ergo, a solid Leverage earns a renew for season five by TNT and we are happy. Except for Men of a Certain Age getting cancelled, TNT is doing homework good. Fates still to be known are for Memphis Beat and Hawthorne, and my gut tells me it´s one greenlight and one red light. Still not sure which one goes which way.

What do you think? Are you happy that TNT renews Leverage for season five? Let me know in the comments section.
