It feels like forever since the last episode of Leverage aired and I have missed Nate and the gang. TNT has released some niblets for us to chew on until Jan. 13th, when the series returns to finish out its second season.
Jeri Ryan returns as Tara Cole, filling in for Sophie while she’s trying to deal with some personal issues (aka: Gina Bellman took some time off to have her baby). Mark Sheppard returns as Sterling to irritate the team once again. And Kari Matchett as Nate’s ex, Maggie, needs some help.
Beginning with “The Runway Job”, in order to take down an oppressive sweatshop owner, the LEVERAGE team infiltrates the fashion world. (Premieres Wednesday, Jan. 13 at 10:00 PM)
The remaining episodes fall out as follows:
