Rectify is a dark drama about the frailty of human tolerances and the suffering others must endure because of it. It's an excellent and slow burn. If you're curious about the show, Sundance is also airing a catch up TV marathon of the first two seasons on July 4th. They're calling it a DVR marathon.
Check out the details below in the press release Sundance sent out to press:
The highly-anticipated third season of “Rectify” premieres Thursday, July 9th at 10:00pm ET/PT on Sundance TV. The critically praised series, which was recently honored with the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award, was also cited by Entertainment Weekly as the #2 Television Show of 2014 and landed on over a dozen “Best of 2014” lists, including TIME, Los Angeles Times, Variety, Huffington Post, Vox, Grantland and more.
Additionally, 16 episodes from the past two seasons will be available for viewers to consume in advance of the season three premiere during “Binge on the Fourth of July: The ‘Rectify’ DVR Marathon,” which will begin Saturday, July 4th at 2:00pm ET/PT. The marathon will kick off with the series’ season one premiere followed by episodes airing back-to-back in order through the season two finale.
“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 a future before him. Daniel, who is still struggling with adapting to the routine aspects of modern life, 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 who never knew him, but now, upon his return, curiously seek complicated adult relationships with him.
Season three of the hour-long drama picks up immediately where season two left off, on the very afternoon of Daniel’s plea deal. Will the deal be accepted? Will Daniel be forced to leave town? And when the body of a missing person is discovered, law enforcement once again turns to him for answers. As Daniel's devoted sister Amantha (Abigail Spencer) attempts to live her own life, she is given an opportunity at a local store that for the first time in a long time has nothing to do with her brother. Meanwhile, Tawney (Adelaide Clemens) and Ted Jr. (Clayne Crawford) struggle to see if their marriage has a future by delving into their pasts for answers. Janet (J. Smith Cameron) and Ted Sr. (Bruce McKinnon), also under pressure from Daniel’s actions, will find that their marriage is put to the test as well.
“Rectify” was created and written by Writers Guild Award-nominated Ray McKinnon (writer and director of The Accountant; actor in “Deadwood,” “Sons of Anarchy”). It is executive produced by McKinnon, as well as Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein, the award-winning producers behind AMC’s “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul.”
