In a somewhat surprising move, AMC has renewed Turn this week. The Revolutionary War drama has a killer premise and an excellent cast, but it failed to gain a ton of traction during its first season at the cable network. Still, it looks like AMC saw enough promise in Turn to sign on for a second season of the drama, which stars Jamie Bell, Heather Lind and Kevin McNally.
AMC’s drama Turn has declared itself to be the story of America’s first spy ring, a story filled with careful information gathering and plenty of double crossing. The tale begins smack dab in the middle of the Revolutionary War, which should offer plenty of fodder for fighting and intrigue. However, three episodes in, the show’s gunpowder hasn’t really sparked, giving only diehard fans of the period reasons to tune in.
If the trailers and teasers for AMC's Revolutionary War spy drama Turn have grabbed your attention, the latest video is well worth the five minutes time it takes to watch, as it digs a bit deeper into the story and character history.
Will AMC's Turn be the next great period drama on television? We can only hope. In the meantime, AMC continues to release new teasers and trailers for the series, the latest of which focuses on the element of allegiance and defiance related to the lead character, Jamie Bell's Abraham Woodhull.
When you're operating within a secret spy ring, given the danger involved, it's probably a good idea to define some of the crucial roles.

The first is presumably the guy who guides the Agent, who's the man behind enemy lines.
