‘Leverage’ returns to Portland to begin filming Season 5

The hit TNT series Leverage recently began filming its 5th season in Portland, OR.

Though the previous four seasons of the show were also filmed in Portland, they were set in Boston, but this season the series is actually based in Portland.

Showrunner John Rogers has been tweeting pictures from various locations around the city including the photo above taken last night at the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Cary Elwes is also in town filming a guest spot for the first episode. “The Princess Bride star is set to guest-star in the premiere, playing Scott Roemer, a modern-day Howard Hughes who is the owner of Global Transit Airlines. The team cons the unscrupulous Roemer into thinking he has a chance to steal Hughes’ famous Spruce Goose mega-plane, but after he seemingly takes the bait, he comes to realize all is not as it seems.”
