The second season of AMC’s Revolutionary War drama “TURN: Washington’s Spies” began production this week in and around Richmond, Virginia, including at two historic locations in Williamsburg; Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area and on the campus of the College of William & Mary.
“The authenticity that Virginia brings to the story we’re telling in TURN: Washington’s Spies has been an enormous part of the series,” said executive producer Barry Josephson. “We’re thrilled to be back for season two and honored that Colonial Williamsburg and the College of William & Mary agreed to allow us access to these amazingly beautiful and magnificently preserved historical buildings.”
Turn will be filming specifically at the Governor’s Palace, which was the official residence for the Royal Governors of the Colony of Virginia, as well as home to two of Virginia’s post-colonial governors, Patrick Henry and Thomas Jefferson, and marks only the second time a large-scale production has been allowed to film in the historic location, which previously hosted the filming of John Adams.
The series will return to AMC with 10 new episodes next spring.
