Leverage: Redemption Season 2: Plot
The exact plot details for the upcoming season are scarce but it is expected that it would explore Eliot’s past which will play a significant role in progressing the story.
Eliot’s backstory is “a storyline we’ve always wanted to go further with. In the original series, it was going to be a big part of that Season 6, and so it’s something we’ve held onto [and] teased again here,” showrunner Dean Devlin said before the renewal of the series. “If we go further, we’re going to take it to where we had always wanted to go. It’s an important part of the story and it’s an important part of understanding why Eliot is who he is. People are going to be very surprised when that storyline blossoms.”
Season 2 will also focus on each character’s development. “What’s always been fun is the character growth. We have these interesting characters who are in a new time in their life. The fun will be to see how they move forward. There’s new members,” Devlin explained. “Sophie is blossoming into this new role as the leader of the team, and that’s going to affect her and bring out parts of her past that we haven’t seen before. And in doing so, it will be the same with our other characters,” he added.
