IMDb TV is moving into original content: The streaming platform has ordered a revival of LEVERAGE, Deadline reports.

The 13-episode new take on the series will star Noah Wyle (who previously worked with LEVERAGE EP Dean Devlin on THE LIBRARIANS) and will include original LEVERAGE stars Beth Riesgraf, Gina Bellman, Christian Kane, and Aldis Hodge. (Original star, Timothy Hutton—who faced allegations of sexual assault earlier this year—is not attached to return.)

“Since the day it was cancelled, I’ve longed to return to the world of LEVERAGE,” Devlin told Deadline. “The show, the characters, the cast and the people who made it happen all hold a very special place in my heart. Our new series with Amazon Studios and IMDb TV is a re-imagining of the original premise. While LEVERAGE centered on a crusade to avenge the death of a child, this series is propelled forward as a redemption story of misdeeds that need amends. I could not be more excited and fired up about returning to the world of Hitter, Hacker, Grifter, Thief!!”

The original LEVERAGE ran from 2008-2012 on TNT.

When the show ended, Devlin was clear he was open to continuing the story. “Listen, I just think the fans don’t want this show to go away,” he said at the time. “I don’t blame them; I don’t, either. Who knows, maybe another network will want it and give me a call. At the moment I’m just grateful for this experience. It lasted longer than I could have hoped. I’m so damn proud of these episodes. I never thought we’d get so many in the can that I thought were really good.”

At the time, Devlin noted “it’s not often that you see shows move from one network to another. I don’t hold out a lot of hope for [a revival], but hey, I’m willing to give it a shot.”

IMDb TV is already a home to the original LEVERAGE—the first batch of episodes are currently streaming on its free platform.
