AMC renews 'Turn' for a second season
The Revolutionary War spy drama "Turn" isn't getting huge ratings on AMC, but AMC needed to renew something so "Turn" has been picked up for a second season.
AMC announced this week that it has ordered a 10-episode second season for "Turn" and will attempt to get some exposure for the historical series by rearing the first season after "Hell on Wheels" this summer.
“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,” blurbsCharlie Collier, AMC president. “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.”
For its first season, "Turn" averaged roughly 2 million viewers in Live+3 figures, including 709,000 viewers in the 18-49 demographic.
The network has yet to announce the fate of "Halt and Catch Fire."
