Why is Timothy Hutton not in Leverage: Redemption?
Fans were happy to see the return of Leverage in a spin-off series. But the mastermind Nate Ford a.k.a Timothy Hutton was not amongst the returning cast members. The main theme of the original series was for Nate to take revenge for his son’s death. Later, it developed into becoming a team that con the wealthy and corrupt. The new show has a different path although with the same motives.
At the end of Leverage, Sophie and Nate retired and went on to have a normal life with each other. So it’s easy to say that both of them ended the Leverage part of their life. But in the new show, we see Sophie return, but Nate has been permanently written off of the show. Hutton was already signed on the project but the controversy surrounding him has made the studio drop him from the reboot. Timothy Hutton was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in 1983 when she was 14 years old. The allegations were made back in March 2020 and Vancouver Police Department took immediate action.
Hutton denied the allegation and claimed that the accuser was lying and that she tried to extort him out of millions of dollars repeatedly. The allegations were dropped after the prosecutors decided not to press charges. So, Hutton decided to sue the producers of Leverage: Redemption alleging that they breached his contract. He claimed that producers and the studio did not investigate the allegation and ignored evidence that proved the inaccuracy of the claims that were made. So, this is the reason why Timothy Hutton is not returning to the spin-off reboot series!
