“Rectifty” has been renewed for a fourth season on the eve of its third season premiere, SundanceTV announced Wednesday.
The show follows the life of Daniel Holden (Aden Young), who returns to his small hometown in Georgia after serving 19 years on death row. Having spent his entire adult life waiting to die, Daniel must now try to find a way to cope with his past and forge a “normal” life with a future before him.
Season 3 of the hour-long drama picks up where Season 2 left off, on the afternoon of Daniel’s plea deal. Will the deal be accepted? Will Daniel be forced to leave town? And when the body of a missing person is discovered, law enforcement once again turns to him for answers.
As Daniel’s sister Amantha (Abigail Spencer) attempts to live her own life, she is given an opportunity at a local store that for the first time in a long time has nothing to do with her brother. Meanwhile, Tawney (Adelaide Clemens) and Ted Jr. (Clayne Crawford) struggle to see if their marriage has a future. Janet (J. Smith Cameron) and Ted Sr. (Bruce McKinnon), also under pressure from Daniel’s actions, will find that their marriage is put to the test as well.
“Rectify” was created and written by Writers Guild Award-nominated Ray McKinnon, the writer and director of the Oscar-winning short film “The Accountant” and an actor in “Deadwood” and “Sons of Anarchy.” It is executive produced by McKinnon, as well as Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein, the award-winning producers behind AMC’s “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul.”
Season 3 of “Rectify” premieres July 9 at 10 p.m. on SundanceTV. Season four will premiere in 2016, with an exact episode count to be determined.
