"Our show is about deception," Leverage creator Dean Devlin tells his cast and producers. "And so is this today."
Thus began a meeting with cast and producers — assembled in-person and via video-conferencing — early Monday morning for what was billed as an important occasion. The stars were scattered across the globe: Christian Kane was in Nashville; Gina Bellman was in London; Timothy Hutton was in Paris, and others were gathered in the L.A. studio. Once they were all in the same room, Devlin surprised them with a special guest who broke the good news: Leverage will be back for a second season!
Devlin filmed the event, and shared the exclusive sneak peek with TVGuide.com, including a moment with Aldis Hodge's mom and Kane's kvelling that his prayers had been answered.
