NEW YORK, July 16 (UPI) -- The Revolutionary War-era drama TURN: Washington's Spies has been renewed for a 10-episode, third season to air in 2016, AMC announced.
"We loved what we saw creatively from the TURN: Washington's Spies team in Season 2, and the show achieved something that is increasingly rare in television today -- a growing audience during the season," Charlie Collier, president of AMC and SundanceTV, said in a statement.
"TURN continues to attract a dedicated and distinctively upscale audience across multiple platforms, and it has carved out a meaningful space in AMC's 'eclectic by design' programming palette. We look forward to working with Craig Silverstein, Barry Josephson, the expanded cast and entire TURN team on Season 3."
The 18th century-set, historical drama stars Jamie Bell as Abraham Woodhull, Ian Kahn as George Washington, 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, J.J. Feild as Major John André, Samuel Roukin as Captain John Simcoe, Ksenia Solo as Peggy Shippen and Owain Yeoman as Benedict Arnold.
