A day before the Season 3 premiere of Rectify, SundanceTV has ordered a fourth year of its signature drama. No episode count was given for the fourth season, which will premiere in 2016.
Even in an increasingly crowded field of dramas on television, Rectify has established itself as something special,” said Charlie Collier, President of SundanceTV and AMC. “Rectify has had such a huge impact in establishing SundanceTV as a home for high-quality, intelligent drama.”
The Peabody Award-winning tells the story of Daniel Holden (Aden Young), who is released after serving nearly 20 years in isolation on death row and returns to his small hometown in Georgia and must cope with being an outsider to his family, his community and the times.
Rectify was created and written Ray McKinnon, who executive produces along with Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein. Abigail Spencer, J. Smith-Cameron, Luke Kirby, Clayne Crawford, Adelaide Clemens, Bruce McKinnon and Jake Austin Walker also star. Last year, the series was renewed days before its sophomore-season finale.
