Watch: The Plot of 'Rectify' Thickens in Exclusive Clip from Upcoming Episode 'Thrill Ride'

15 July 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

SundanceTV's first original series, "Rectify," is a haunting character study, tracking the life of Daniel Holden (Aden Young) after he returns to his home in small town Georgia, after being unjustly held on death row for 19 years. The critically acclaimed show, created by Ray McKinnon, evolves like a novel -- as the Holden family embarks on missions of self-discovery, the series' pace reflects their Southern Gothic lifestyle. But the Season 3 premiere indicated a new direction the show may be heading, making us wonder how much longer can the characters contain their internal turmoil?  For Daniel's road to redemption is not a race, yet a journey, as this clip, featuring a conversation between Holden and Amantha (Abigail Spencer), sheds some light on what may be in store for as Season 3 progresses. Tune in Thursday night for the second episode of Season 3, "Thrill Ride," and in the meantime enjoy this exclusive clip from it below. »

'Rectify' Showrunner Ray McKinnon on Daniel's Confession, Solving Murders and Life's Prisons

15 July 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

"Obviously, I'm very pleased. It beats cleaning carpets." That’s not the answer one expects when asking a showrunner about getting picked up for another season. But then again, not every showrunner is Ray McKinnon and not every series is Rectify. From the mind of the Georgia-born actor (Sons of Anarchy, Deadwood) turned filmmaker turned showrunner, the slow-burning Southern Gothic drama centers on Daniel (Aden Young), a man freed from death row after 19 years, only to find life on the outside perhaps even more difficult. Although the acclaimed series has never found a large audience, it has

Rectify: Season Three Ratings

13 July 2015 5:54 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though the Rectify TV show brings in low ratings for SundanceTV, The cable channel has already renewed the series for a fourth season. Will the numbers rise in season three -- or will the execs wish they'd cancelled it instead? Stay tuned.

On Rectify, Daniel Holden (Aden Young) spent 19 years on Death Row for the rape and murder of his teenage girlfriend. He was freed thanks to DNA evidence and returned to his hometown. Daniel struggles to adapt to his new life and make his way in a town filled with people who aren't terribly happy to see him -- including some of the members of his own family. Other castmembers include Abigail Spencer, Adelaide Clemens, Clayne Crawford, Bruce McKinnon, J. Smith-Cameron, Jake Austin Walker, Luke Kirby, Jd Evermore, Johnny Ray Gill, and Sean Bridgers.

‘Rectify’ Season 3: Ray McKinnon On Why Six Episodes Is Just Right

9 July 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

SundanceTV’s “Rectify” has garnered critical acclaim and a loyal cult following over two seasons, and fans of the unique drama will be pleased to discover the first two episodes of season three are as strong as ever.

In the show’s timeline it’s only been a few weeks since Daniel Holden (Aden Young) was released from death row after almost two decades in prison, though the question of whether or not he killed his high school sweetheart remains up for debate. At the end of last season, he re-confessed to committing the crime, under pressure from the zealous politician (Michael O’Neill) who originally prosecuted him.

That turn of events has left his family, including mother Janet (J. Smith-Cameron) and sister Amantha (Abigail Spencer) reeling. While his antagonistic step-brother Teddy (Clayne Crawford), is deciding whether to press charges against Daniel for a separate assault — a matter complicated by »

The SundanceTV series Rectify is back for Season 3 (and has already been renewed for a fourth season, to air in 2016), as it follows the life of Daniel Holden (Aden Young) who must navigate what it means to establish his life again in his small hometown in Georgia, after serving 19 years on death row. Now that he’s taken a plea deal in order to remain free from prison, he must learn to cope with probation officer meetings, while his mother Janet (J. Smith Cameron) prepares for his looming banishment and his sister Amantha (Abigail Spencer) tries to build a life around something other than her brother’s innocence, until a body turns up that raises new and troubling questions about the night that everything changed.

Review: In praise of Sundance's miraculous drama 'Rectify' as it begins season 3

9 July 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

At one point in the third season of "Rectify," Amantha Holden is floundering her way through a team-building exercise at a management training seminar for her job. To help her out, the moderator suggests, "Why don't you tell us a story that only you can tell us?" Her story — about how older brother Daniel wound up on Death Row as a teenager, how she devoted her entire adult life to getting him released, succeeded through DNA evidence, and then saw him confess to the murder a second time to cut a plea deal, making her efforts and years into a joke — fits the letter of the suggestion, if not the spirit of the exercise, and it leaves the entire room speechless. "Rectify" itself doesn't exactly tell a story no one else on television could. Almost from the moment TV was born, the medium's been filled with stories of crimes, cops, »

‘Rectify’ Casts ‘Mad Men’ Alum Melinda Page Hamilton (Exclusive)

8 July 2015 2:54 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

SundanceTV’s “Rectify” has added “Mad Men” actress Melinda Page Hamilton to its Season 3 cast, TheWrap has learned. The actress will play a therapist on the show, which follows Aden Young as Daniel Holden, a man adjusting to life as a free man after a technicality exonerated him for the 20-year-old rape and murder of his high school girlfriend. In an exclusive clip (below), series creator Ray McKinnon says that the show has something of “Mad Men” in its DNA, and its unhurried narrative was inspiration for the showrunner to tell the story of Daniel Holden at his own pace. »

Rectify Is Among the Most Radical Storytelling on TV

8 July 2015 2:20 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Rectify is such a quiet, patient series that it takes awhile to realize how radical its storytelling is. Near the end of season two it seemed to rethink itself, and the first couple of episodes of season three, which begins Thursday night, suggest that the show is about to reinvent itself and shift its focus while trying to hold on to the qualities that made it so special — and frankly, peculiar. This Sundance series from writer-actor Ray McKinnon (Deadwood, Sons of Anarchy) spent two seasons examining the life of Daniel Holden (Aden Young), a convicted rapist and killer suddenly sprung from prison on a technicality, but it did so in a way that took advantage of TV’s endless capacity to extend and even pull apart time. Much of the action took place over six days, and there were many flashbacks and dream sequences. I can’t think of another »

SundanceTV renews 'Rectify' for Season 4 - Here Are 5 Reasons You Should Watch

8 July 2015 1:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

On the eve of its third season premiere, SundanceTV has renewed "Rectify" for Season 4. With Season 3 premiering on Thursday (July 9) night, Season 4 will air in 2016 and, fittingly, SundanceTV said that an official episode count has yet to be announced, which makes sense for a show that has had six, 10 and six episodes in its first three seasons. "Even in an increasingly crowded field of dramas on television, ‘Rectify’ has established itself as something special," blurbs 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 »

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

8 July 2015 12:54 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

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 »

Which Emmys underdogs do you most want to see nominated?

Are you like me and mourn the absence of some of your favorite TV stars from the Emmy nominations every year? Our readers have been having their say on the subject in our forums. Add your favorite to that forums post here after reading a sampling of their suggestions below. For the past five years in a row, I have been hoping in vain that the TV academy would nominate Eden Sher for Comedy Supporting Actress for her work as Sue Heck, eternal optimist and all-around do-gooder, on  "The Middle." She is the heart and soul of that show and should have a shelf full of Emmys by now.

SundanceTV Launches ‘Serial’-Inspired ‘Rectify’ Podcast

7 July 2015 2:11 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

SundanceTV is making it easier for fans to catch up on crime drama “Rectify” by taking a page from coverage of an actual murder case and has launched the “Serial”-inspired podcast “Rectify: The Case Against.”

The podcast, which is written by “Rectify” staff writer Kate Powers, condenses the previously aired 16 hours of television into 16 minutes of audio. The podcast is meant to bring in new viewers to the series, which follows Daniel Holden (Aden Young), a man adjusting to life on the outside after spending much of his life on death row for the rape and murder of his girlfriend. It also offers a refresher course for those who are foggy on how season two ended last year.

Rectify’s” third season premieres at 10 p.m.  July 9 on SundanceTV.
