Daniel McFadden/Sundance

Rectify, SundanceTV’s first original series, will conclude with its upcoming fourth season, the network announced.

TV Insider Coverage of Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour 2016The series follows Daniel Holden (Aden Young), who returns to his hometown after spending 19 years on death row. Rectify also stars Abigail Spencer, J. Smith-Cameron, Adelaide Clemens, Clayne Crawford, Luke Kirby, Jake Austin Walker and Bruce McKinnon.

Rectify is in many ways an existential story that was allowed to come to life during an existential era in serial storytelling,” series creator Ray McKinnon said in a statement. “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 tale I wanted to tell in the way I felt it should be told with the mad 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 final season will start production in April and air in the fall.
