ADDITIONAL NOTES: renewed through the 2015-16 season (the show's fourth) on 7/8/15
DESCRIPTION: (from Sundance Channel's press release, July 2015) On the eve of its season three premiere, SundanceTV announced today that the critically acclaimed and Peabody Award-winning series "Rectify" has been renewed for a fourth season. Season four of "Rectify" will premiere in 2016, with an exact episode count to be determined. "Even in an increasingly crowded field of dramas on television, 'Rectify' has established itself as something special," said Charlie Collier, president of AMC and SundanceTV. "What Ray McKinnon, this incredible cast and everyone associated with the show have been able to achieve is remarkable, and we are so pleased to usher in this third season with an order for a fourth. 'Rectify' has had such a huge impact in establishing SundanceTV as a home for high-quality, intelligent drama. We are excited to continue this important partnership with Ray and the entire team." The highly anticipated third season of "Rectify" premieres Thursday, July 9th at 10:00pm ET/PT on SundanceTV. "Rectify" follows the life of Daniel Holden (Critics' Choice Television Award nominee 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. His struggle affects everyone whom he comes in contact with, from his very fractured family, to those working to protect him and those working against him on the side of law and order, and those in his hometown.
