AMC CONTINUES THE REVOLUTION WITH A THIRD SEASON OF "TURN: WASHINGTON'S SPIES"

SERIES RANKS AS THE THIRD MOST AFFLUENT DRAMA AMONG ADULTS 18-49 AND ADULTS 25-54 IN LIVE+7 RATINGS

NEW YORK, NY - July 15, 2015 - AMC today announced that "TURN: Washington's Spies" has been renewed for a third season of 10 episodes to air in 2016. The Revolutionary War period drama delivered an average of 1.6 million viewers in its second season and helped open up a new night of original programming for AMC on Monday, along with "Better Call Saul" and "The Making of The Mob: New York."

"We loved what we saw creatively from the 'TURN: Washington's Spies' team in season two, 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' continues to attract a dedicated and distinctively upscale audience across multiple platforms, and it has carved out a meaningful space in AMC's 'eclectic by design' programming palette. We look forward to working with Craig Silverstein, Barry Josephson, the expanded cast and entire 'TURN' team on season three."

"TURN: Washington's Spies" ranks as the third most affluent scripted drama among adults 18-49 and adults 25-54 on ad-supported television in the 2014-2015 season, behind only AMC's "Mad Men" and FX's "The Americans." Among the affluent audience, season two of "TURN: Washington's Spies" was up 20% among adults 18-49 and 19% among adults 25-54 versus season one. The show's second season also saw a significant increase in TVE with 1.2 million total views - double the number from season one (554,000).

The show's social media community has also seen growth, increasing its Twitter followers during season 2 by 70% over last season and its Facebook followers by 26%, with a significant spike in social conversation in mid-June around a fan-led #RenewTURN Twitter campaign.

Season two of "TURN: Washington's Spies" has achieved very favorable audience scores on both Rotten Tomatoes (97%) and IMDb (8.0 out of 10), and also drew critical praise, including this small sampling of reactions to the series:

· "As lavish and well-acted as ever and promising more intricate intrigues." -Neil Genzlinger, The New York Times

· "Newcomers to the series... can just let the pleasures of this handsome and well-acted period piece wash over them." -Nancy Dewolf Smith, Wall Street Journal

· "A good, solid, intelligent, well-made show." -Verne Gay, Newsday

· "Like Abe though, the series is moving with increased confidence and ingenuity and like his cause, this season looks like a winner." -Christine Seghers, IGN

· Adults 25-54: 724,000 (+135% growth from Live+Same Day)
