AMC Cancels Turn, but Will Give It One More Season to Finish the Revolution

The American Revolution drama will return in 2017

Tim Surette

AMC is ending the revolution, but not without a bang.

It's a bit of good news, bad news for Turn: Washington's Spies, AMC's drama about the American Revolution, as the network said the series will end after its just-announced fourth season. Ten new episodes will air in 2017.

The series is based on Alexander Rose's book Washington's Spies: The Story of America's First Spy Ring and follows a Long Island farmer who partners up with childhood friends to form the Culper Ring, a band of civilians who turned against their British king and helped turn the tide of the Revolutionary War. Jaime Bell, Seth Numrich and Daniel Henshall star.
