THE SECOND SEASON OF SUNDANCE TV'S CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED ORIGINAL SCRIPTED DRAMA "RECTIFY" WILL PREMIERE ON THURSDAY, JUNE 19th AT 9:00 PM ET/PT

New York - March 6, 2014 - SundanceTV announced today that the second season of its critically acclaimed scripted series "Rectify" will premiere on Thursday, June 19, 2014 at 9:00pm ET/PT. The haunting story of a man released from prison after spending nearly two decades on death row, "Rectify" has been overwhelmingly well-received by critics and has landed on numerous year-end top ten lists in 2013. Matt Roush at TV Guide rated the series a "10 out of 10" and called it "TV's most absorbing, unsettling new drama." The Daily Beast dubbed "Rectify" "the best new show of 2013" and Mary McNamara at the Los Angeles Times said "'Rectify' is a revelation that sets a new standard... a game changer." "Rectify" is created and written by Ray McKinnon (The Accountant, "Deadwood," "Sons of Anarchy") and executive produced by Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein, the Emmy Award(R) winning producers behind "Breaking Bad" and the upcoming "Halt and Catch Fire."

Season one of "Rectify" depicted one week 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 reignited old wounds and introduced unexpected complications for those closest to him. In season two we find Daniel becoming an active participant in his life, making decisions and thinking about the future as he struggles to find meaning in a dangerous and unpredictable world. It will also delve into the lives changed by Daniel's return and the ripple effect his actions have on the people around him.

Sarah Barnett, Sundance Channel President and GM, stated, "The response to 'Rectify' has been incredible. We feel as though this story has tapped into something truly unique, with both critics and audiences using their platforms to share such strong, personal reactions to this very distinctive TV series. There's so much drama and character that's been set up in the first season, it will be electrifying to see where 'Rectify' goes in season two."

Also starring in "Rectify" alongside Aden Young (Killer Elite, The Tree) as Daniel Holden are Abigail Spencer ("Mad Men," Oz the Great and Powerful, "Burning Love"), 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; Adelaide Clemens (The Great Gatsby, "Parade's End") plays Tawney Talbot, Ted's kind-hearted wife; Bruce McKinnon (Lawless, "The Wronged Man") plays Daniel's step-father Ted Talbot Sr.; and Jake Austin Walker (The Chaperone) plays Daniel's half-brother Jared.

"Rectify" is currently shooting on location in Griffin, Georgia, near Atlanta.
