In fact, the third season is a rare instance in that it experienced a steady increase from the first to the final episode, however, overall it was not able to match the viewership of the first two installments. Continental Army captures John Andre and puts him on trial, while Judge Woodhull prosecutes Abraham for assault and conspiracy targeting Simcoe. Robert Townsend has had enough of spy life and intends to retire. Benedict Arnold is promoted in the Royal Army. Two of the defendants are hanged, but only one dies. The season ends with the Culper Ring still active, and Simcoe, Rogers and Hewlett still out and about. Most of the main characters` fates are resolved in the season finale, so if Turn: Washington`s Spies is renewed for a fourth season, there will be new storylines introduced.
UPDATED July 28, 2016: Turn: Washington`s Spies, the story of The Culper Ring of spies during the American Revolution is about to come to an end after the next season. AMC has announced the renewal of the historical drama for a 10-episode fourth season, which is bound to become the last one for the series. The show has suffered a significant ratings decline over the course of the three completed seasons, and not even the growth streak during last season could stop the producers from canceling it. However, since Turn is an AMC in-house production, its extension through fourth season was a viable financial decision.
