Turn: Washington's Spies Renewed for Fourth and Final Season at AMC

at . Comments

There is still some work to be done to get this country on the right path.

No, I'm not talking about the current political race, but about Turn: Washington's Spies!

There is one more chapter remaining in the story about the courageous men and women who risked it all to make sure we'd have a free country.

Turn has been renewed for a fourth and final season that will consist of 10 episodes and air in 2017.

Court Martial - Turn: Washington's Spies

While Turn has been declined in ratings year to year, it can boast being in the top ten watched series by the most affluent people in America. 

Mad Men was once in that category, as well. Turn: Washington's Spies Season 3 also hit a creative surge, posting a ratings high for the season finale.

“Turn: Washington’s Spies has always had a lofty goal – to tell the real story of the American Revolution from the ground up,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV.

“Craig Silverstein, Barry Josephson, and their incredible team introduced us to the Culper Ring who have reminded us that without human intelligence, the war may have had a very different outcome."

"We are excited to see this story of betrayal and rebellion, and the sacrifices therein, through to completion in a fourth season.”

“I am so pleased to be able to bring the story of the Culper Ring to its epic conclusion, at the point where the revolutionary war ends and the great American experiment truly begins,” Craig Silverstein said, hinting on the direction of the final season.

“This series has been a joy to work on.”

Virginia's governor even weighed in on the renewal announcement. The series will continue to film in his state.

“As a history buff and a supporter of Virginia’s film industry, I am excited to welcome Turn: Washington’s Spies’ back for a fourth season of filming,” said Governor Terry McAuliffe.

“We can always count on AMC for high-quality programming, and we are proud to continue our partnership as we work to build a new Virginia economy.”

There is an annual gathering of fans on Long Island who visit the places of cultural significance from the show.

This past weekend the event hosted 700 people celebrating the Culper Spy Ring, up from 400 the year before.
