There's only one more job for the Leverage team. On the Friday before Christmas TNT officially canceled the drama series about a team of con artists. How's that for a lump of coal in your stocking?

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.

The show's fifth and now final season will conclude with the appropriately titled "The Long Goodbye Job" to air Christmas Day, Tuesday, December 25, at 10pm on TNT.

Luckily the show's producers knew that season 5 would likely be the last, so the final episode was created to serve as a potential series finale. The last hour will see the team taking on a con that is connected to the tragic death of Nate's son, an event that helped launch the former insurance investigator's life of Robin Hood-style crime.

For five seasons Leverage was a fun, wildly entertaining series about a group of criminals who teamed up to help con rich, powerful, unscrupulous people and companies to help the little guy. The team is headed by Oscar winner Timothy Hutton as Nate Ford. He's aided by seductive con artist and wannabe actress Sophie Devereaux (Gina Bellman), thrill-seeking thief Parker (Beth Riesgraf), world-class hacker Alec Hardison (Alsis Hodge) and tough-as-nails enforcer Eliot Spencer (Christian Kane).

Following the end of The Closer this past summer, Leverage became TNT's longest-running series.

Be sure to tune in for the series finale to say goodbye to the team (and hopefully learn Sophie's REAL name) Christmas Day.
