SundanceTV’s ‘Rectify’ Renewed Ahead of Season Three Premiere

SundanceTV has signed on for another season of drama “Rectify” ahead of the show’s season-three premiere.

The series, created by Ray McKinnon, stars Aden Young as a man recently released from death row after his conviction is overturned. The series, which returns at 10 p.m. July 9, has been described by Variety critic Brian Lowry as “further proof great dramas are coming from an extremely wide variety of sources.”

Despite smaller exposure opportunities than some other dramas, AMC Networks has found creative ways to promote the show in anticipation of its third season — including a binge marathon on AMC and a promotional podcast in the vein of “This American Life’s” “Serial,” which deals with a similar, yet nonfictional, subject matter.

“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.”

“Rectify” is exec produced by McKinnon, as well as Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein.
