Series Concludes the Critically-Acclaimed, Peabody Award-Winning Run of Four Seasons
AMC UK Will Present a Marathon Screening of Seasons One to Three of “Rectify” from 9:00pm on 20th to 22nd December
London – 03 November 2016 – AMC UK announced today that the fourth and final season of the original series “Rectify” will premiere exclusively to BT TV customers on Tuesday 3rd January 2017 at 9:00pm. The drama follows the life of Daniel Holden (Aden Young), who returns to his small hometown in Georgia after serving 19 years on death row. Created and written by Academy Award® winner Ray McKinnon (The Accountant, Chrystal), the final season of “Rectify” will be comprised of eight one-hour episodes. Allowing viewers to catch up with the drama, AMC UK will present a marathon screening of seasons one to three of “Rectify” across three nights, starting at 9:00pm on 20th, 21st and 22nd December.
The series will be available free of charge in the UK to all BT TV customers on the AMC channel, number 332 on BT TV and BT Sport Pack subscribers on Sky channel 192. AMC is also available in HD on both BT TV and Sky with an HD subscription.
“I never knew imaginary people could be so demanding. Or rewarding,” said McKinnon. “I will miss you Holdens and Talbots and folks of Paulie, GA. But I will surely think of you from time to time and ponder what you might be up to or up against as you live out your lives somewhere in my dreams. In the land of the living, I’m eternally grateful to the gifted writers, the tireless crew and the incomparable actors who helped me bring this world to life over the past four years, and to AMC Networks for giving this story a home.”
Having spent his entire adult life waiting to die, “Rectify” follows Daniel Holden (Aden Young) as he tries to find a way to cope with his past and forge a “normal” life with an unexpected future before him. While doubts surround the circumstances of his original conviction, Daniel affects everyone he encounters in different and profound ways – his fractured family, his community and even complete strangers.
Season three of “Rectify” saw Daniel accepting a new plea deal, placing tough restrictions on his life and forcing him to leave his hometown of Paulie. His sister Amantha (Abigail Spencer), who has devoted her entire adult life to securing his release, continued her struggle to find her own identity and forge a path for herself. The season concluded with Daniel leaving for Nashville and season four picks up a few months later as that one fateful night, two decades ago, still exerts a profound impact upon the lives of Daniel and those around him.
“Rectify” has consistently received highly enthusiastic reviews from critics. The Hollywood Reporter described it as “rich and compelling,” Time magazine called it “entrancing,” the Los Angeles Times declared “It isn’t just good TV, it’s revelatory TV” and The Guardian assured viewers that “It may sound deathly serious… but the whole thing is shot through with a wonderfully dark, Southern humour.”
The series is executive produced by McKinnon, Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein, the award-winning producers behind the international hit dramas “Breaking Bad,” “Better Call Saul,” and “Halt and Catch Fire,” and Marshall Persinger (“Army Wives”).
“Rectify” stars Aden Young (Killer Elite, The Tree) as Daniel Holden; Abigail Spencer (“Mad Men,” “True Detective”) as Amantha Holden, Daniel’s sister; J. Smith-Cameron (“True Blood,” Margaret) as Janet Talbot, Daniel’s loving mother who must put her family back together as best she can; Luke Kirby (Take This Waltz, “Show Me A Hero,” “Slings & Arrows,” and “Touched With Fire”) as Jon Stern, Daniel’s lawyer who works for an organisation dedicated to exonerating the wrongfully convicted; Clayne Crawford (A Walk to Remember, “24”) as Ted Talbot Jr, Daniel’s stepbrother and the person with whom he has the most complicated relationship; Adelaide Clemens (Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, The Great Gatsby) as Tawney, Ted’s kind-hearted wife who relates the most to Daniel; Bruce McKinnon (Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, Lawless) as Daniel’s stepfather Ted Sr; Jake Austin Walker (“Fear the Walking Dead,” The Chaperone) as Daniel’s half-brother Jared and JD Evermore (“True Detective,” “The Walking Dead”) as Sheriff Daggett, who is searching for the truth around Daniel’s conviction armed only with the information he is able to piece together 20 years later.
