AMC has renewed Revolutionary War drama “Turn: Washington’s Spies” for a fourth and final season, the network announced Tuesday. The 10-episode final run is scheduled to premiere in 2017.

Season 3 of “Turn” ended June 26. The series, never a ratings juggernaut, saw viewership decline in its most recent run, averaging 566,000 viewers per episode in Nielsen live + same-day numbers.

“Turn” is executive produced by Craig Silverstein and Barry Josephson of Josephson Entertainment, and produced by AMC Studios. The series stars Jamie Bell, Seth Numrich, Daniel Henshall, Heather Lind, Kevin R. McNally and Meegan Warner.

AMC was never quite able to build momentum behind “Turn,” despite attempts to reinvigorate it through marketing efforts (such as changing the title from “Turn” to “Turn: Washington’s Spies” for the second season) and storyline adjustments (the introduction ofAlexander Hamilton in Season 3 on the heels of the Broadway musical “Hamilton”).
