    Awesome show. I definitely am hoping for season 2 and beyond. Sick and tired of “reality” crap and the History channel not showing any history?!?!?!?!?!?
    This is a good show and even though not everything is factual it is still something that teaches us about our countries origins.

    PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!!

    Please renew – it is a great show that gives an idea of what our forefathers fought for! Very enjoyable!

    My family would get together every Sunday evening to watch TURN. We all looked forward to each episode and hope it will be renewed!!!

    My entire family votes YES for a Season 2. The show is well written, the cast is terrific, the twists and turns keep one on the edge of the chair, the hateful characters are despised universally and our hearts go out to the folks who are trying to stay alive during the War of Independence. Many of the historical references are accurate and that is very much appreciated.
    A resounding YES for renewal and a Season 2.

    Love the show…give it a chance to continue as there so many more story lines to be. Explore …wonderful actors

    I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and I hope will be renewed for Season 2. The script is interesting and the acting is very good. You despise the villains and cheer for the heroes.

    My husband and I loved it, although I still don’t know why he married his brother’s fiancée and does the baby belong to him? The story line is great and the finale left both of us wanting more.

      Hi Sharon,
      Hmmm? How do I answer your question in a short comment? First, marriage was quite different in those days. It was often based on survival and arrangements, not love. It is often said George and Martha Washington were not in love, but got along. Their marriage was a convenience for both of them, without going into long details. That was the norm, not the exception. Survival was difficult, people died at young ages, and often marriage became a matter of survival and support.

      In this case, Abe felt he indirectly brought his brother’s death by unintentionally starting a riot while at King’s college (if I remember correctly) in which is brother, a Captain in the British Army, was called upon to put down and died. Abe honored the family by marrying his brother’s wife. Since marriage was often about survival and support, and Abe felt responsible anyway, he broke off his secret engagement with Sarah and married Mary. Good question on the baby, but I do believe its Abe’s. If I got the story wrong, anyone please chime in. Its been a few weeks.

    TURN has been most entertaining, and a show I have been recommending to friends and family. Even as the last episode has aired, on-demand still has season one available (yeah!)
    I hope it is renewed. Episodes and characters got increasingly interesting as the season progressed. Cinematography, costumes, plot, characters — all have interest. I love that it is also “untold history”. So my vote for renewal is a definite YES!

    Had a few slow spots but characters and story line really picked up. We really like the subject matter and how it was treated. We are hoping for a season 2.

    AMC is establishing itself as king of American Costume drama. I love that about it and love Turn and am buying the music on ITunes. Amc hang in there please don’t cancel. And a whole album of these great early American, English, Irish tunes would be wonderful
