AMC announced on Tuesday that its series Turn would be renewed for a fourth and final season, TV Series finale reports.
The drama is set during the Revolutionary War and centers on the Culper Ring, a group of spies competing for American independence. The cast of the series includes Jamie Bell, Seth Numrich, Heather Lind, Daniel Henshall, Kevin McNally, Burn Gorman, Samuel Roukin, and JJ Feild.
Showrunner Craig Silverstein stated “I am so pleased to be able to bring the story of the Culper Ring to its epic conclusion, at the point where the revolutionary war ends and the great American experiment truly begins. This series has been a joy to work on thanks to Barry Josephson, Alexander Rose, our sexy writing staff, brilliant crew, and dream team cast. I am also thrilled to continue to work with AMC, who had the passion and courage to put “TURN: Washington’s Spies” on the air and support our effort. I eagerly look forward to our future adventures together.”
The third season of Turn: Washington’s Spies averaged about 1.2 million viewers per episode. In addition the network announced that Silverstein had renewed his overall development deal. Under this two year agreement, Silverstein will return as showrunner for season four of Turn and develop new projects for AMC.
In regards to the series, Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV said “Turn: Washington’s Spies has always had a lofty goal – to tell the real story of the American Revolution from the ground up. To capture the truth about the choice regular people had to make to support what has become the United States of America. It frequently involved turning against friends and family, and it always involved risking everything. Craig Silverstein, Barry Josephson, and their incredible team introduced us to the Culper Ring who have reminded us that without human intelligence, the war may have had a very different outcome. We are excited to see this story of betrayal and rebellion, and the sacrifices therein, through to completion in a fourth season.”
New episodes of Turn will air in 2017.
