It had a good 5 year run on TNT but sadly the final episode airs (in the US) this coming Tuesday. It's not a surprise because the producers did mention a few weeks ago that this is most likely the show's final season. The good news is that it will have a proper finale. Since they anticipated the cancellation, they had enough time to write and film the finale that they envisioned for the show. The final episode is called "The Long Goodbye Job".

Real shame. I got in to this quite late and, thanks to FX, caught up quite quickly as they started it again from Season 1, Episode 1 at 6pm a few months back.

But then I guess 5 seasons isn't a bad run and at least it's getting a proper ending as well.

Yeah found out a few hours ago, really saddened about the news, seems theres a few US shows coming to an end after a long run, Flashpoint being one other last week. Oh well hopefully it makes way for some new exciting T.V shows in the new year.

You had mentioned Flashpoint as an example of one of the "US shows coming to an end after a long run." I simply pointed out is not a US show. It's Canadian.

Leverage has always been on my to-watch list but it's always been a mixed-bag kinda series. Each season was a mixture of a couple of stella eps, a few good eps and a couple of stinkers - but the quality of the stella ones made me forgive them the icky ones. This season, however, I can't remember if they've even had a good one -
Spoiler


So I will be sad to see it go, if the end ep rocks I won't be too disappointed - it's time to turn off the lights cos this party is over.

It's a shame that it's ending, it's one of my favourite shows at the moment. Still 5 seasons isn't a bad run I suppose.

Tempting to download S5 now I suppose, rather than wait until next year

That's exactly what I thought. The fizz was fizzling out of this show. Still it was much better than most other shows. I will miss it. Especially the cast, they worked so well together.

aww thats a shame. It was nice to have a formula style show that wasn't based around murder or police work. It was much less cringey than hustle but probably a good thing they didn't flog it to death.

It was a nice finale. I was satisfied with the conclusion and the final minute leaves enough of an opening for just in case they ever want to spin if off into another series some day (unlikely but one never knows).

I'm a huge fan of Christian Kane and the band Kane, but for some reason I just couldn't get into this show. I managed two or three episodes. Plus I found that blonde one incredibly annoying.

Still, I'm sad for the show, the cast/crew, and of course the fans.

If you're interested in giving it another go I'd recommend you start with either of these two eps:

s1e05 - The Bank Shot Job
and/or s1e11 - The Juror Job

both eps show (imho) how great the series could be.

Methinks if you try them and they don't click for you then yup, you were right not to give the show more eps.

Well thanks for telling us about something that hasn't even aired in the UK yet. Very considerate of you..

This is the US section is it not?

Not to mention it was hardly "spoilery" was it?

Irrelevant. There are threads about US shows in this section that are clearly marked "US Pace" and "UK Pace".

While this thread isn't obviously marked with either, I think it was quite clear from reading the thread that the majority of contributions were from people who weren't watching at US Pace so it would have been a simple curtesy to error on the side of caution and add spoiler tags - that's all.

Doesn't have to explicitly mention plot points or details to be "spoilery" does it ?.

Well, yes. It kind of does. A show being cancelled is a statement of fact, it's not ruining anything about the show for you.

I'm not talking about the show being cancelled - that's more than obvious. I'm talking about the poster who mentioned the final episode's final moments and the fact that it apparently leaves enough open for a spin-off which, IMHO, leaves enough to infer certain things about the fate of the team.

But, that said, I'll leave this thread alone now as I'm not going to argue the toss and someone will invariably think they're being "helpful" by revealing specific tag-free spoilers.
