AMC’s Revolutionary War Drama ‘Turn’ Gets Second Season

AMC has ordered a second season of “Turn,” the period drama that explores the Culper spy ring that was an integral part of America’s fight for independence from England.

The AMC Studios show, which is exec produced by showrunner Craig Silverstein and Barry Josephson of Josephson Entertainment, drew 1.61 million viewers for its June 8 finale — a dip from the 2.12 million viewers who turned in for its April 6 premiere, but significantly better than the ratings for AMC’s other freshman drama from this spring, “Halt and Catch Fire,” which bowed at 1.19 million but had dropped under 800,000 for its June 15 episode. (“Mad Men,” AMC’s crown jewel, wrapped its season May 25 with 1.94 million viewers.)

“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.”

“Turn,” which stars Jamie Bell and Seth Numrich, is distributed internationally by Entertainment One Television through an exclusive multi-year output agreement. An encore of the 10-episode first season will air on Saturday nights this summer with “Hell on Wheels.”
