SundanceTV Reveals Final Season Premiere Date for Rectify

Season 4 will consist of eight episodes

Kaitlin Thomas

Few shows labeled the "best show you're not watching" truly deserve the distinction, but SundanceTV's Rectify has more than earned the title over its run. And now the final chapter has a premiere date.

SundanceTV revealed Sunday that the slow-burn drama will conclude its critically-acclaimed run with a fourth and final season of eight episodes that kicks off Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 10/9c. The news was announced at the Television Critics Association fall previews.

Created by Ray McKinnon, the series stars Aden Young as Daniel, a man released from prison after 19 years on death row when new evidence reveals he didn't murder a young woman. Each episode follows the character as he transitions to life in the outside world of his small hometown in Georgia, where not everyone believes he's innocent.

The final season will pick up a few months after the events of the Season 3 finale, which saw Daniel banished from his hometown of Paulie as part of his plea deal. Season 4 will follow the next chapter of Daniel's life, as well as the lives of his mother (J. Smith-Cameron), sister (Abigail Spencer) and the people of Paulie.

In addition to Young, Smith-Cameron and Spencer, Luke Kirby, Clayne Crawford, Adelaide Clemens, Bruce McKinnon, Jake Austin Walker and J.D. Evermore also star.

Rectify's final season premieres Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 10/9c on SundanceTV.
