To get to the heart of Roper’s vast empire, Pine must withstand the suspicious interrogations of his venal chief of staff Major Corkoran (Tom Hollander) and the allure of his beautiful girlfriend Jed (Elizabeth Debicki).

“TURN: Washington’s Spies” Returns for Season Three Monday, April 25th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT
“TURN: Washington’s Spies” premieres its third season on Monday, April 25th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. The Revolutionary War spy thriller, starring Jamie Bell (Flags of Our Fathers, Snowpiercer) as Abraham Woodhull and executive produced by Craig Silverstein and Barry Josephson, returns with an epic 10-episode season that builds towards one of the most notorious moments in American history – the treasonous defection of Benedict Arnold (Owain Yeoman). Behind enemy lines on Long Island, Abe Woodhull is a spy for the Patriots, reporting directly to George Washington (Ian Kahn). Embedded within the Continental Army, Benedict Arnold is seduced to become an informant for the British. As the consequences of their espionage ripple through the battlefield, the spy game becomes a heart-stopping race to see which mole will be unmasked first. In 1778, there is only one fate that awaits a captured spy – the hangman’s noose.
The price for treason is blood, and not all of our heroes will survive. “TURN: Washington’s Spies” is based on the book Washington’s Spies by Alexander Rose. In addition to Bell, Yeoman and Kahn, the series stars Seth Numrich as Benjamin 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, Samuel Roukin as Captain John Simcoe, Ksenia Solo as Peggy Shippen and Nick Westrate as Robert Townsend.
