SUNDANCE TV BEGINS PRODUCTION ON THE FOURTH AND FINAL SEASON OF ACCLAIMED DRAMA "RECTIFY"

New Cast Members with Recurring Roles in Season Four to include Nathan Darrow and Scott Lawrence

New York, New York - April 11, 2016 - SundanceTV announced today that production has commenced on the fourth and final season of its original drama series "Rectify" today, Monday, April 11 in Griffin, GA. The hour-long episodic drama was created and written by Academy Award(R) winner Ray McKinnon (The Accountant) 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 new season, comprised of eight episodes, will air in fall 2016.

At the end of Season 3, Daniel was banished from Paulie as part of a plea deal and set out to start his new life in Nashville. The new season picks up a few months later and introduces several new cast members. Nathan Darrow ("House of Cards," "Gotham") will join as Billy, an old classmate of Amantha's who helps her reconnect with her youth. Scott Lawrence (Avatar, "Getting On," "Spark," "The Grinder," "JAG") plays Avery, the leader of Daniel Holden's halfway house who guides his group of ex-offenders with an astute mix of compassion and tough love.

"'Rectify' put SundanceTV on the map as a destination for smart, provocative and completely original storytelling when it launched in 2013," said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV. "Lauded by critics from the start, 'Rectify' is a unique and beautiful piece of television artistry, and we are certain that the final chapter of Daniel's story will cement this show's place in television history."

"Rectify" 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 an unexpected future before him. While doubts surround the circumstances of his original conviction, Daniel affects everyone he encounters in different and profound ways -- his very fractured family, his community and even strangers.

"Rectify" stars Aden Young (Killer Elite, The Tree) as Daniel Holden; Abigail Spencer ("Mad Men," "True Detective") as Amantha Holden, Daniel's younger sister who, after devoting her entire adult life to securing his release, now has to find her own identity; J. 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.
