NEW YORK, July 26 (UPI) -- The historical drama TURN: Washington's Spies will return for a fourth and final, 10-episode season in 2017, AMC announced Thursday.
"TURN: Washington's Spies has always had a lofty goal -- to tell the real story of the American Revolution from the ground up. To capture the truth about the choice regular people had to make to support what has become the United States of America. It frequently involved turning against friends and family, and it always involved risking everything," Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV, said in a statement. "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," added Silverstein, showrunner of TURN. "This series has been a joy to work on thanks to Barry Josephson, Alexander Rose, our sexy writing staff, brilliant crew, and dream team cast. I am also thrilled to continue to work with AMC, who had the passion and courage to put TURN: Washington's Spies on the air and support our effort. I eagerly look forward to our future adventures together."
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, Samuel Roukin as Captain John Simcoe, Ian Kahn as George Washington, Ksenia Solo as Peggy Shippen, Nick Westrate as Robert Townsend and Owain Yeoman as Benedict Arnold.
