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, JJ 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?

        I couldn’t be happier. There should be more show s like TURN….Keep the same actors, story line and writer’s and the show will only get better and even more followers….

    I love this show. Turn is about American history. How can one not be inspired by how our country was liberated from its oppressors? I do know that there were more women involved in the revolution. I just wished they had more women representing the cause for liberty.

    I watch both turn and halt and catch fire
    They both have to many scenes in the dark no one wants
    To watch a show they can’t see

    I love TURN. It is so interesting to see how people lived in those revolutionary days and the divided loyalties that the people of that time felt. I hope it returns in the fall.
