There is no need to wonder whether the Turn: Washington’s Spies TV show will be cancelled or renewed for season five. When AMC renewed the historical drama series, the cable channel stipulated it was for a fourth and final season. So, why bother to track the ratings? First of all, it keeps us off the streets. But probably, more importantly, it helps us gauge whether other AMC TV series will be cancelled or renewed. Finally, strong ratings increase the likelihood of a spin-off or sequel series. So how will Turn: Washington’s Spies do in the Nielsens, during its final installment? Stay tuned.
An American Revolutionary War spy drama, Turn: Washington Spies stars Jamie Bell as Abraham Woodhull, Owain Yeoman as Benedict Arnold, and Ian Kahn as George Washington. The AMC cast also includes: Seth Numrich, Daniel Henshall, Heather Lind, Meegan Warner, Kevin R. McNally, Angus Macfadyen, Burn Gorman, Samuel Roukin, Ksenia Solo, and Nick Westrate. The story follows the Culper Spy Ring — friends who become spies to help turn the tide of the war.
The fourth and final season opens with traitor Benedict Arnold exacting revenge upon George Washington, by handing over suspected spies to the Brits. And while Woodhull and his Culper Ring cohorts evade Arnold’s grasp, he feels compelled to seek vengeance. What truly matters, though, is winning the war. Woodhull must forsake his bloodlust and focus, in order to prevail.
