AMC Drama ‘Turn’ to Conclude After Four Seasons

10-Episode Final Fourth Season Ordered

AMC has announced that drama “Turn: American Spies” will officially end after the just renewed 10-episode fourth season. Debuting on April 6, 2014, “Turn” is a period drama set in the 1780s based on “Alexander Rose’s book Washington’s Spies: The Story of America’s First Spy Ring.” The third season of upscale “Turn: Washington’s Spies,” which concluded on June 27, averaged 1.2 million viewers per episode and approximately 600,000 adults 25-54.

“’Turn: Washington’s Spies’ has always had a lofty goal – to tell the real story of the American Revolution from the ground up,”
said Joel Stillerman, President of Original Programming and Development for AMC and SundanceTV. “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.”

The network also announced that “Turn: Washington’s Spies” executive producer and showrunner, Craig Silverstein (“Nikita”), has renewed his overall development deal. Under this two-year agreement, Silverstein will return as showrunner for season four and develop new projects for AMC.
