  • “Newcomers to the series… can just let the pleasures of this handsome and well-acted period piece wash over them.” – Nancy Dewolf Smith, The Wall Street Journal
  • “A good, solid, intelligent, well-made show.” – Verne Gay, Newsday

“We loved what we saw creatively from the TURN: Washington’s Spies team in Season 2, and the show achieved something that is increasingly rare in television today – a growing audience during the season,” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC and SundanceTV. “TURN: Washington’s Spies has carved out a meaningful space in AMC’s ‘eclectic by design’ programming palette. We look forward to working with [executive producers] Craig Silverstein, Barry Josephson, the expanded cast, and the entire ‘TURN’ team on Season 3.”
