Today's News: Our Take - Sundance Channel Renews Rectify for Second Season
Just two episodes in, Sundance Channel's first original scripted series Rectify has been renewed for a 10-episode second season, the network announced on Wednesday.
"The response to Rectify has been incredible," Sundance Channel President and General Manager Sarah Barnett said in a statement. "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."
Created and written by Ray McKinnon and produced by Breaking Bad executive producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein, Rectify stars Aden Young as a man released from prison after serving nearly 20 years in complete isolation on death row.
Season 2 is currently slated to air in 2014, while the freshman season, airing Mondays at 10/9c, wraps up on May 20.
