About the Show
TURN: Washington's Spies takes viewers into the stirring and treacherous world of the Revolutionary War and introduces Abraham Woodhull who, after aligning with a group of childhood friends, forms the Culper Ring -- America's first spy ring.
Season 1 ended as Abe’s dangerous balance of fighting for what he believes in while keeping the violence of war far away from his family collapsed, and he was forced to burn his home to the ground to cover up the murder of a British soldier who discovered he was a spy. Season 2 will dive deeper into the twists, turns, victories and betrayals of a Shadow War waged behind enemy lines, pitting the cunning agents of King George against the intrepid and inventive spies serving General George Washington.
As the second season opens, the Patriot cause has suffered the crushing loss of their capital city of Philadelphia to the British. Washington’s army faces desertion and death, and the embattled general faces conspirators from within his own ranks, as well as personal demons he keeps hidden from the men he leads. Washington's closest ally in these dark times is also his most celebrated battle commander, Benedict Arnold -- a friend whose growing discontent will threaten the fate of the Revolution. Outnumbered and outgunned on the battlefield, Washington is counting on his ring of young spies and his greatest hope, Abe Woodhull, a lone civilian deep behind enemy lines, who finds he has little left to lose and is willing to risk everything he has left... including his soul.
