Rectify‘s reckoning has come. Sundance announced the acclaimed drama series will have its fourth and final season this fall.
“Rectify is in many ways an existential story that was allowed to come to life during an existential era in serial storytelling,” said creator Ray McKinnon. “It was a case of perfect timing with the perfect partners. I have always felt that Rectify could end at any time or just as easily continue. Well, not easily. But there is no perfect ‘end’ for this story nor for these characters. They will continue to live on. We just won’t document them any longer. And the timing of this ‘non-end’ end feels exactly right. SundanceTV has been a dream to work with on this journey. I am so grateful to have been allowed the freedom to tell the taleI wanted to tell in the way I felt it should be told with the amd and beautiful collaborators who joined me on the ride … oh wait, we haven’t shot the final season yet. I’ll get back to you.”

The Peabody award-winning Rectify will start shooting in April and premiere later this year. Following the life of Daniel Holden (Aden Young) after returning to his small hometown after serving 19 years on death row, Rectify first debuted on Sundance in 2013 and helped put the cable network on the map for original scripted programming.
