Turn: AMC TV Show; To Be Cancelled or Renewed for Season Two?

Turn TV show on AMC: canceled or season two?This evening marks the season finale of the Turn TV show on AMC. Will it also be the series finale as well? Will this drama get a chance to grow in season two or will it be cancelled after one short season?

Taking place during the American Revolutionary War, Turn follows a group of friends who become spies and help turn the tide of the war. The cast includes Amy Gumenick, Angus Macfadyen, Burn Gorman, Daniel Henshall, Heather Lind, J.J. Feild, Jamie Bell, Kevin McNally, Meegan Warner, and Seth Numrich.

The show debuted on April 6th to 2.12 million viewers. In week two, the series dropped 12% to 1.87 million and week three dropped 25% to 1.40 million. Turn has been dropping nearly every week and has fallen to a low of just 1.08 million.

Will the show be cancelled? It’s difficult to predict what a cable channel like AMC will do because they have so few scripted series to compare. It’s certainly not positive that the ratings have dropped but they aren’t nearly as low as Low Winter Sun’s from last fall. Plus, last week’s debut of Halt and Catch Fire didn’t do much better with 1.19 million viewers.

AMC could go either way with this one but I suspect that it will be renewed for a second season. We’ll have to wait and see.

But, what do you think? Have you been watching? Should the Turn TV series be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

The season is over and I just started watching it “on Demand”. Thank you, cable TV, because I am riveted! How did I not know about this when it was playing live? Most likely because I was doing a lot of traveling at the time. But for whatever reason, I missed it. I certainly hope the network has the sense to grant it another season. It’s a story that needs to be told. It’s our heritage. The acting is superb. I’m loving it!

Love this show! Great acting and great story. The characters and their stories are not all black and white, good and bad. Wonderful Tv show. Please dont cancel it!! So sick of teenage vampires and horror movies. This is definitely worth watching.

I have watched this show religiously–love it!!! And THEN, I went back and watched it again–all episodes—and like the responses above–I see some things I missed previously or understand better. The cast is great—cannot stand Simcoe, but that is the sign of a good actor who plays the part of such a villain!!! PLEASE continue–if you can!!!!

Most folks download shows now so a lot of the people doing this are not shown. So it would be a big mistake not to renew this.

Please renew TURN! We watched every episode twice and learned something new we missed the first time.

Return this series. The timeline of history and te story being told is sharp yet sometimes fast, but it doesn’t drag on like some shows do. Great cast. I would buy Turn, if and whenever it comes to dvd.
