Turn: Season Two for AMC TV Show

Turn TV show season twoAMC has renewed their Turn TV series for a second season. There will be 10 episodes once again.

Here’s the cable channel’s press release:


Show Attracted Passionate Core Audience Averaging 2 Million Viewers Per Week Over Initial Ten Episodes

NEW YORK, NY, June 23, 2014 – AMC today announced that it has ordered a second season of its Revolutionary War drama, “TURN,” which attracted a passionate core audience averaging 2 million viewers a week over its initial 10-episode run. “TURN” will return to AMC with 10 new episodes next spring. The network is also pairing encores of the entire first season of “TURN” with “Hell On Wheels” on Saturday nights this summer, to give new viewers a chance to discover and connect with the show.

“Craig Silverstein, Barry Josephson and a talented cast and crew delivered a truly distinctive and engaging premiere season. We look forward to continuing this revolutionary journey into season two,” said Charlie Collier, AMC president. “AMC and its creative partners have a track record of nurturing programs we collectively believe in, patiently growing viewership and engagement over time. With ‘TURN,’ once again, we dive in with our partners to build upon this very promising first season.”

Season ratings averages, live+3, across initial 10 episodes:
Total audience, 2 million viewers
Adults 25-54, 772,000 viewers
Adults 18-49, 709,000 viewers

On a very competitive night, the “TURN” finale delivered 2.2 million viewers, live+3, including 792,000 adults 25-54 and 706,000 adults 18-49.

A character-driven drama set during the Revolutionary War, “TURN” takes us behind the battlefront, to a shadow war fought by everyday heroes who vowed to keep their heroics a secret. Based on Alexander Rose’s book “Washington’s Spies,” “TURN” centers on Abe Woodhull, a farmer living in British-occupied Long Island, who bands together with a disparate group of childhood friends to form the Culper Ring. Together they risked their lives and honor, and turned against family and King, for a fight they believed in passionately, ultimately helping George Washington turn the tide of the Revolutionary War in favor of the rebels. Their daring efforts also revolutionized the art of espionage, giving birth to modern tradecraft as we know it today, along with all of the moral complexity that entails.

“TURN,” from AMC Studios, is executive produced by Craig Silverstein (“Nikita”), who also serves as showrunner, and Barry Josephson (“Bones,” Enchanted) from Josephson Entertainment. The series stars Jamie Bell as Abraham Woodhull, Seth Numrich as Ben Tallmadge, Daniel Henshall as Caleb Brewster, Heather Lind as Anna Strong, Kevin R. McNally as Judge Richard Woodhull, Meegan Warner as Mary Woodhull, Burn Gorman as Major Hewlett, Angus MacFadyen as Robert Rogers, JJ Feild as Major John André and Samuel Roukin as Captain Simcoe. “TURN” is distributed internationally by Entertainment One Television (eOne), through an exclusive multi-year output agreement.

The Show should be canceled! I hear way to many settlers and soldiers speaking in Irish accents rather than English which was true for the period there is nothing in history that supports this the majority of the settlers that fought in the war were English the flood of Irish did not come to this county until the potato famon which was long after the war. If they can’t get this major fact right they didn’t do their homework

Maybe you think Turn should be cancelled because there were more Irish instead of English portrayed on the series, but remember most historical series portrays History according to Hollywood. I think the purpose of the series is to explain the reasons and activities of the Revolutionary War where we got our Independence from our Mother Country England. Mistakes always happen when making a Historical Docudrama. Most Americans today don’t even know American History this series is a reminder of our past history. If you don’t like it watch it switch channels to a Dumb SITCOM

I think it should be renewed for season 2. I think the founding history of our country should be told.

I am delighted to hear that there will be a season 2 for Turn. This season was slow, for me, to get going but by the 4th or 5th episode, I looked forward to seeing what came next. It also encouraged me to read up on this spy ring and the major players. I am sure it will be many months until this series returns. This new pattern of programming makes me wonder if these shows will retain their audience. I guess we will have to see.
