Among the many high-profile series that will leave Netflix in December 2021 is AMC’s Turn: Washington’s Spies, which launches in its entirety in the U.S. on December 1.
The AMC series, developed by Craig Silverstein, aired on the cable network for four seasons in 2014.
The series, which stars Jamie Bell, Seth Numrich, Daniel Henshall, and Heather Lind, is set in the late 17th century during the American Revolutionary War and begins shortly after the reconquest of Long Island by the British.
A total of 40 episodes have been produced, with the final episode airing on August 12, 2017. Despite the poor reviews of the first season, critics have been much kinder to subsequent seasons.
Netflix in the United States has been airing the series since March 2015 and releases new seasons every year.
Why is Turn: Washington’s Spies leaving Netflix?
The final season of TURN: Washington’s Spies was released on Netflix on December 2, 2017. Now, four years later, the rights to the show are expiring, which means Netflix will either have to renew the show (which seems unlikely) or cancel it, which, as confirmed in the November/December 2021 cancellation, will happen December 1, 2021.
In recent years, AMC has chosen to air its new content exclusively on AMC+ or license it elsewhere. Currently, Better Call Saul and The Walking Dead are the only two regularly updated shows on Netflix.
The last AMC library to be removed from Netflix was Hell on Wheels, which left Netflix in December 2020.
Turn: Washington’s Spies is leaving Netflix Canada?
Netflix in Canada also received season 4 at the same time as the U.S., but it’s unclear if the AMC series will air there as well. So if you are Canadian and want to watch the series, you need to do it now.
Where will Turn: Washington’s Spies air next?
Now that the series has left Netflix, we strongly suspect it will air exclusively on AMC+, as AMC owns and distributes the series.
In the case of the recently canceled Hell on Wheels, the series was also found on the Roku channel, so there’s a chance it could end up on an AVOD channel.
