Fans of the AMC drama Turn: Washington’s Spies got a dose of good and bad news today.
The network announced that TURN: Washington’s Spies will be returning for a fourth and final season with 10 episodes.
There is no specific date when the episodes will air, but it will be sometime in 2017.
The network also announced TURN: Washington’s Spies executive producer and showrunner, Craig Silverstein, has renewed his overall development deal. Under this two-year agreement, Silverstein will return as showrunner for season four and develop new projects for AMC.
“‘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,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV. “
“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,” said Silverstein. “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.”
A character-driven drama set during the Revolutionary War, TURN: Washington’s Spies takes us behind the battlefront, to a shadow war fought by everyday heroes who vowed to keep their heroics a secret.
Based on Alexander Rose’s book Washington’s Spies: The Story of America’s First Spy Ring, TURN: Washington’s Spies centers on Abe Woodhull, a farmer living in British-occupied Long Island, who bands together with a disparate group of childhood friends to form the Culper Ring.
