AMC has renewed its period drama, “Turn,” for a second season.
Set during the Revolutionary War, the drama will return next spring with 10 new episodes.
The renewal arrives after the series averaged 2 million total viewers in its first season consisting of 10 episodes. It also averaged 709,000 viewers in the advertiser-coveted demographic of Adults 18-49. In AMC’s key demo of Adults 25-54, the series averaged 772,000 viewers.
“Turn” is produced by AMC Studios with Craig Silverstein (“Nikita”) serving as executive producer and showrunner. Barry Josephson (“Bones,” “Enchanted”) of Josephson Entertainment also serves as an executive producer.
“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 2,” AMC president Charlie Collier said in a statement.
“AMC and its creative partners have a track record of nurturing programs we collectively believe in, patiently growing viewership and engagement over time,” he continued. “With ‘Turn,’ once again we dive in with our partners to build upon this very promising first season.”
The series stars Jamie Bell, Seth Numrich, Daniel Henshall, Heather Lind, Kevin R. McNally, Meegan Warner, Burn Gorman, Angus MacFadyen, JJ Feild and Samuel Roukin.
