A drama series that has won critical acclaim and a Peabody Award will be back for a fourth season. SundanceTV announced the renewal of “Rectify,” with season four to bow in 2016.
The show’s third season premieres today, July 9, 2015.
Charlie Collier, president of AMC and SundanceTV, said in announcing the renewal: “Even in an increasingly crowded field of dramas on television, ‘Rectify’ has established itself as something special. What [creator, writer and executive producer] Ray McKinnon, this incredible cast and everyone associated with the show have been able to achieve is remarkable, and we are so pleased to usher in this third season with an order for a fourth. ‘Rectify’ has had such a huge impact in establishing SundanceTV as a home for high-quality, intelligent drama. We are excited to continue this important partnership with Ray and the entire team.”
The show received the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award earlier this year and has become a fixture on many critics’ “best TV shows” lists.
