Revolutionary War Drama Turn Renewed for Second Season by AMC

AMC will take viewers back to the Revolutionary War in 2015 after renewing the freshman historical drama Turn for a second season.

Turn averaged 2 million viewers per episode during its freshman run of 10 episodes on AMC. It was heavily promoted during the fourth season of The Walking Dead and had a strong season finale finish on a competitive night with 2.2 million viewers, including live+3 and 706,000 viewers in the 18-49 demo.

“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 two,” stated Charlie Collier, AMC president  in the announcement. “AMC and its creative partners have a track record of nurturing programs we collectively believe in, patiently growing viewership and engagement over time. With Turn, once again, we dive in with our partners to build upon this very promising first season.”

This summer AMC will pair up Turn with Hell on Wheels in hopes of expanding the audience now that a second season has been committed to. The back-to-back dramas will air on Saturday nights.

With Turn renewed, AMC is rolling the dice on one of its two new 2014 freshman dramas. The other, Halt and Catch Fire, ended its run with only 1.19 million viewers.

The first of 10 episodes of Turn Season 2 will premiere in spring 2015.
