AMC has just brought online the trailer for season two of its historical spy drama “TURN: Washington’s Spies.” Check it out in the player below and catch the special two-hour season premiere Monday, April 13 at 9:00pm ET/PT.
An AMC Studios production, “TURN: Washington’s Spies” stars Jamie Bell (Flags of Our Fathers, Snowpiercer) as Abraham Woodhull, a farmer living in British-occupied Long Island during the Revolutionary War, who bands together with a disparate group of childhood friends to form the Culper Ring – America’s first spy ring. The new season moves deeper into the battles waged by soldiers and civilians alike in the pursuit of freedom, and the sacrifices they’re willing to make to secure it. As Abe becomes more committed to the Culper Ring activities, George Washington (Ian Kahn) battles both personal demons and betrayal from within his ranks that threaten not only his leadership but the fate of the revolution. As the colonies struggle to become a nation, the outcome of the revolution will hinge on alliances both on and off the battlefield.
The series is executive produced by Craig Silverstein (“Nikita”), who also serves as showrunner, and Barry Josephson (“Bones,” Enchanted) from Josephson Entertainment, and is based on the book Washington’s Spies by Alexander Rose, who served as a consultant for the first season and joins the writing staff for season two. In addition to Bell and Kahn, the series also stars Seth Numrich as Ben Tallmadge, Daniel Henshall as Caleb Brewster, Heather Lind as Anna Strong, Kevin R. McNally as Judge Richard Woodhull, Meegan Warner as Mary Woodhull, Burn Gorman as Major Hewlett, Angus Macfadyen as Robert Rogers, JJ Feild as Major John André and Samuel Roukin as Captain John Simcoe. Joining the cast for season two are Ksenia Solo as Peggy Shippen and Owain Yeoman as Benedict Arnold.
“TURN: Washington’s Spies” is distributed internationally by Entertainment One Television (eOne) through an exclusive multi-year output agreement.
