"'Rectify' is thoughtful, and sometimes crushing, and it lingers." - Margaret Lyons, NYTimes.com

An all new episode of SundanceTV's critically acclaimed series, "Rectify," airs on Wednesday, November 2 at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 p.m. CT. On the second episode, "Yolk," back in Paulie, the Holden/Talbot family adjusts to daily life without Daniel's catalyzing influence. Janet stews and frets over Daniel's life away from home until a chance encounter inspires her to take action. Teddy and Tawney attempt to reconnect. Amantha is confronted by a presence from her past. Jared explores the great outdoors. Teddy, feeling antsy under his parents' roof, makes Amantha an unusual offer. Unable to shake his sense of responsibility for Daniel's case, Jon Stern continues to lobby Justice Row.

The hour-long episodic drama was created and written by Academy Award(R) winner Ray McKinnon (The Accountant, Chrystal) and is executive produced by McKinnon, Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein, the award-winning producers behind "Breaking Bad," "Better Call Saul," and "Halt and Catch Fire," and Marshall Persinger ("Army Wives"). The final season will be comprised of eight episodes. Episodes throughout the season will be available the day after linear premiere via On Demand services including Sundance.tv and the SundanceTV app. The first two episodes will be available with no log-in required.

Smith-Cameron ("True Blood," Margaret) as Janet Talbot, Daniel's loving mother who must put her family back together as best she can; Luke Kirby (Take This Waltz, "Show Me A Hero," "Slings & Arrows," and "Touched With Fire") as Jon Stern, Daniel's lawyer who works for an organization dedicated to exonerating the wrongfully convicted; Clayne Crawford (A Walk to Remember, "24") as Ted Talbot, Jr., Daniel's stepbrother and the person with whom he has the most complicated relationship; Adelaide Clemens (Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, The Great Gatsby) as Tawney, Ted's kind-hearted wife who relates the most to Daniel; Bruce McKinnon (Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, Lawless) as Daniel's stepfather Ted, Sr.; Jake Austin Walker ("Fear the Walking Dead," The Chaperone) as Daniel's half-brother Jared and JD Evermore ("True Detective," "The Walking Dead") as Sherriff Daggett, who is searching for the truth around Daniel's conviction armed only with the information he can piece together 20 years later.
