"Rectify" Season 4 has been ordered and will return in 2016.

"Rectify" (TV show) is a legal drama on the Sundance Channel that was created and written by Academy Award winner Ray McKinnon ("The Accountant"). An intense character-driven drama, "Rectify" explores themes of justice, redemption and freedom, all set against the backdrop of a wrongful conviction.

When Daniel Holden (Aden Young) is released after nearly 20 years of complete isolation on death row, he returns as an outsider to his family, to his community, and to the times. Somehow, he survived the mental and emotional strain of his imprisonment, but now the walls have suddenly come crumbling down and Daniel is set free in a world he no longer understands. He's an outsider, lost in a once familiar world, struggling to navigate his new found freedom. Combined with two decades of technological and social changes to his small town and the larger world, everything he encounters is a puzzle.

Daniel's unexpected presence not only throws his family into disarray, it ripples out to all the people connected to his case — the prosecutor who rode the notoriety to become a State Senator, the Sheriff who pushed the boundaries of the investigation, and the entire town of Paulie, Georgia, that blamed him for killing one of their own. Like a deadly spark, Daniel's release reignites the mystery, the power plays, and the questionable justice that condemned him.

Season 1 of "Rectify" depicted six days in the life of Daniel Holden (Aden Young) following his release from death row to a world he no longer understood, to build a life he may not be allowed to keep. As Daniel tried to find a place in his reconfigured family and within a community deeply divided about his return, his presence re-ignited old wounds and introduced unexpected complications for those closest to him.

Season 2

In Season 2 we find Daniel unsure if he wants to live or die, if he's guilty or innocent and if it ultimately even matters. The season will track Daniel's journey to find meaning in his life in the face of a dangerous and unpredictable world. It will also delve into the lives changed indelibly by Daniel's return.

Season 3

Season 3 picks up where Season 2 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. Amantha attempts to have a life outside of Daniel's situation and is offered a promotion at Thrifty Town. Tawney and Ted Jr., meantime, struggle to decide if their marriage has a future. As they both delve into their pasts for answers, parental ghosts abound which may help them understand how to navigate the present.

Season 4

At the end of Season 3, Daniel was banished from Paulie as part of a plea deal and set out to start his new life in Nashville. The new season picks up a few months later. Nathan Darrow ("House of Cards," "Gotham") joins the cast as Billy, an old classmate of Amantha's who helps her reconnect with her youth. Scott Lawrence ("Avatar," "Getting On," "Spark," "The Grinder," "JAG") plays Avery, the leader of Daniel Holden's halfway house who guides his group of ex-offenders with an astute mix of compassion and tough love.
  Also starring in "Rectify" alongside Aden Young ("Killer Elite," "The Tree") as Daniel Holden are Abigail Spencer ("Cowboys and Aliens," "Oz the Great and Powerful"), who portrays Amantha Holden, Daniel Holden's younger sister who believes completely in his innocence and has devoted her entire adult life to securing his release; J. Smith Cameron ("True Blood," "Margaret") who plays Janet Talbot, Daniel's loving mother, who has been living with the impending death of her son for nineteen years, and who long ago had made peace with the loss of her son, giving up on any hope for his release; Luke Kirby ("Take this Waltz," "Slings and Arrows") tackles the role of Jon Stern, Daniel's lawyer who works for an organization dedicated to exonerating the wrongfully convicted; Clayne Crawford ("A Walk to Remember") portrays Ted Talbot, Jr., Daniel's stepbrother whom he had never previously met; and Adelaide Clemens ("Silent Hill: Revelation 3D," "The Great Gatsby") plays Tawney Talbot, Ted's kind-hearted wife; Bruce McKinnon ("The Way Home") as Daniel's step father Ted Sr.; Jake Austin Walker ("The Chaperone") as Daniel's half brother Jared; Michael O'Neill ("Transformers") as Senator Roland Foulkes; and Hal Holbrook ("Into the Wild") as Rutherford Gaines, Daniel's former attorney.
