Rectify: Aden Young opens up on Us TV's greatest unsung gem

31 August 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

"Often-times, when you make things, you get paid in applause - and even that's very rare. So to do a show where there's a yearning to see it is a great honour."

SundanceTV's Rectify is one of Us television's great unsung gems - despite winning much critical acclaim, particularly for the performance of its leading man Aden Young, the show had not secured a broadcaster in the United Kingdom - until now.

AMC UK will air the series from the start, as part of a prestigious line-up that also includes the red-hot Fear the Walking Dead and underground hit Manhattan.

"I'm glad to see it's finally going to hit the shores of the UK," says Young. "Because I think that it's something that a lot of people will be able to recognise in themselves - the journey of this family trying to find their way forward by feeling."

Top 5 TV: 'Mr. Robot' Fries Our Circuits & HBO Shows Us a 'Hero'

17 August 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

For the past several weeks, TV critics and creators gathered in Beverly Hills for the annual Television Critics Association press tour, where the networks previewed the upcoming season and everyone talked a lot about the state of the medium. One of the big topics of conversation was whether the recent boom in original programming has led to an unmanageable glut. In short: Are we so bombarded with quality these days that clearing out our DVRs is becoming a chore?

That's a valid question. Yet looking down our "Top Five TV" list below, »

‘Rectify’ Earns Its Critical Love Letters With Lyrical Finale (Spoilers)

13 August 2015 8:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

At a time when more TV dramas feel like the great American novel, “Rectify” is something of a marvel, playing like a little haiku. Lyrical and hypnotic, the SundanceTV series concluded its six-episode third season Thursday, advancing the ball on a variety of fronts, with fractured relationships and new beginnings. While the plot was set in motion by a murder, the program is defined by its personal drama. Although series creator Ray McKinnon and his cast haven’t received enough accolades beyond love letters from critics, unlike the show’s fictional characters, they have nothing for which to atone.

It’s been a slow road to possible redemption for Daniel (Aden Young, simply splendid), who spent 19 years on death row for a rape and murder. Now, exoneration appears to be within his grasp, although the damage his time in prison inflicted on him suggests there might be no getting back »

Ray McKinnon, Abigail Spencer and Aden Young Preview the 'Rectify' Season 3 Finale, How and When the Show Might End

13 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Season 3 of "Rectify" has felt a lot like saying goodbye. After Daniel Holden's ordered banishment from his hometown of Paulie, the former inmate and his family have been forced to face the future. Daniel (Aden Young) has to decide where he's going to go and what he'll do when he gets there. Amantha (Abigail Spencer), his sister, has to figure out what her life will be like without Daniel at the center of it, and the show as a whole is honing in on who actually killed Hanna oh-so-many years ago. With all that in mind, "Rectify" isn't ending; at least, not yet. Showrunner Ray McKinnon has voiced his aims to end the series sooner rather than later, possibly within the next few years, but first fans are ready to savor the Season 3 finale. Airing Thursday night on SundanceTV, "The Source" will address many of the questions opened up throughout the first five episodes. »

Rectify Season Finale Sneak Peek: Daniel and Janet Discuss Money at Dinner

12 August 2015 8:39 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Season 3 has been another emotional, thought-provoking, and downright terrific year of Rectify, and even though it feels like we only just reunited with our favorite characters, the “super sized” Season 3 finale will air tomorrow night. Per SundanceTV’s official description, the episode, which is titled “The Source,” will feature Janet and Daniel taking a road trip; Tawney returning home; Jon regretting not helping Daniel more; and Amantha having dinner with an unexpected companion. However, if that tease isn’t enough for you, we have a special sneak peak at tomorrow night’s finale that you can watch right now. In the clip below, Daniel (Aden Young) goes out to dinner with his mother, Janet (J. Smith Cameron), and it’s easy to tell how uneasy he is from the get-go. He thought they were going to a seafood restaurant, but it doesn’t look that way at all to him. »

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.

'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 »

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, »
