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.

I really enjoyed the series. We need to see how our nation was at its start. The show clearly portrays the reasons in color why our federal government and laws were set up in such a way to prevent what the British soldiers did under their understanding of British law to people living in America at that time. We need more understanding of this to help battle the problems of today in the united states. I could relate to some of the characters in the show, One character reminded me of myself to the point where it was totally scary. The series kept me on the tip of my seat, it kept my attention. Don’t stop that. Please keep the series running. I so want to know what happens next.

I truly enjoyed the first season of TURN, although the romantic element is purely fictitious. Even so, as a former teacher, I am pleased to see that this era has been brought forth dramatically. The casting is great and the acting is outstanding. Even with some poetic license, the story of Washington’s spy ring deserves a greater place in history than it has been given thus far. For a good non-fiction read on this topic, check out “George Washington’s Secret Six: the Spy Ring that Saved the American Revolution” by Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger. Quote by British Major George Beckwith: “Washington did not really outfight the British, he simply outspied us!”
