Season Finale Thursday, August 13 at 10 PM 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.
In the extended season finale "The Source," Janet and Daniel take a road trip, Tawney returns home, Jon regrets not helping Daniel more, Amantha has dinner with an unexpected companion.
“Rectify” stars Aden Young (Killer Elite, The Tree) as Daniel Holden; Abigail Spencer (Cowboys and Aliens, “True Detective”) as Amantha Holden, Daniel’s younger sister who has devoted her life to securing his release; J. Smith-Cameron (“True Blood,” Margaret) as Janet Talbot, Daniel’s loving mother who has been living with the impending death of her son for 19 years; Luke Kirby (Take This Waltz, “Show Me A Hero”) as Jon Stern, Daniel’s lawyer; Clayne Crawford (A Walk to Remember, “24”) as Ted Talbot, Jr., Daniel’s stepbrother whom he had never previously met; Adelaide Clemens (Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, The Great Gatsby) as Tawney Talbot, Ted’s kind-hearted wife; Bruce McKinnon (Lawless, “The Wronged Man”) as Daniel’s stepfather Ted Sr.; and Jake Austin Walker (The Chaperone) as Daniel’s half-brother Jared.
SundanceTV has now renewed “Rectify” for a fourth season. “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.”
The current season of this hour-long drama picked up where season two left off, on the afternoon of Daniel’s plea deal. And when the body of a missing person is discovered, law enforcement once again turns to him for answers. As Daniel's 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) have struggled to see if their marriage has a future. Janet (J. Smith Cameron) and Ted Sr. (Bruce McKinnon), also under pressure from Daniel’s actions, has found that their marriage is put to the test as well.
