‘Leverage: Redemption’ premiered in July 2021 when Freevee was known as IMDb TV. The first season consisted of sixteen episodes divided into two parts which is still available for streaming. Kate Rorick and Dean Devlin act as executive producers and showrunners for the action series.
Amazon describes the synopsis as follows,
“… corporate bad guys and dirty dealers are stepping on the little guy in their quest for money and power and the Leverage team is back to teach them a lesson. No matter the danger, when someone needs help, they provide…Leverage. This time around, their criminal skills are put to the test by everything from a husband-and-wife team running a multi-level marketing scam and a shipping magnate dumping boatloads of plastic waste to a music producer who abuses his position over vulnerable women. This season also sees an old friend of Sophie’s unexpectedly coming out of the woodwork, making her question her choices.”
Timothy Hutton, who played Nathan “Nate” Ford in the prequel show, has sued Electric Entertainment for breach of contract, claiming they removed him over an alleged crime committed in Canada.
