Took the liberty to create the Season 3 thead, despite it is pretty early. The new season premiere is destined for July. Season 3 is the last one of the show, comprised of 6-episodes. The first one’s title is ”Hoorah”.
Today, the show’s second season was awarded with a Peabody Award.
Here we can discuss the news and episodes.April 16, 2015 at 8:42 am #346659
One of my favorite shows currently airing. Really looking forward to it.April 16, 2015 at 8:58 am #346660
I need to catch up with Season 2 on Netflix before July! Thanks for the reminder!April 16, 2015 at 9:07 am #346661
Season two was great.April 21, 2015 at 9:28 pm #346662
I thought “Breaking Bad” would leave a big hole in the drama world, but in the past season, I think a few relatively young shows have stepped up their game in a big way and are the current gold standard: “The Americans,” “Masters of Sex,” and “Rectify.” This show should be winning all the Emmys.May 15, 2015 at 12:33 pm #346663
Daniel, that was a great interview with Aden Young.
His realisation of the show’s essence is fully and totally inspiring.
I really liked the small hint about Daniel’s relationship with Amantha in Season 3. Honestly, this is the best cast on television.May 15, 2015 at 8:12 pm #346664
In spite of all of it’s flaws, by a writing perspective, this show should at least win writing, either for “Until you are blue” or “Donald the Normal” and actor for Young, supp actress for Clemens, a nom for Spencer and of course Clayne Crawford is a revelation and his performance on “Until you are blue” is inspiring in all levels. It is a shame the last season will not have 10 episodes like season 2.May 24, 2015 at 9:30 pm #346665
Found out this show was on Netflix yesterday and finished it just now. What a deeply depressing but throughful and almost sweet show. Currently my number 3 drama of the season behind Justified and The Americans. I’ll have more to say later I suppose.May 25, 2015 at 8:02 pm #346666
I kind of knew you would like it, yes it is depressing as hell, but what did you think about the acting? As I stated above, at the very least Clemens and Young should be nominated, maybe Crawford can get in for the final season, in my opinion, his character had lots of development on that last season.May 25, 2015 at 8:48 pm #346667
I do love shows about people it is easy to feel sorry for, don’t I? I was just telling someone this was the first show where I rooted for strangers to simply be nice to the protagonist throughout. And it was oddly heartwarming every time someone was.
Aiden Young definitely deserves a nomination and could win if nominated. It’s a very stoic but heartfelt performance. The season 2 premiere would be competitive if for nothing more than the final scene with Kerwin. The only other epfrmance to have an emotional impact on my like that was Ruth Wilson in the episode that she talks to the priest and Lois Smith on The Americans. I prefer Spencer for supproting performances most but I would be okay with both you listed being nominated as well. Donald The Normal would be my pick for writing.May 26, 2015 at 10:11 am #346668
It’s a beautifully done show. It may be my second favorite, after Justified. Really can’t wait for the final six episodes. And I’ve been saying the same thing for a while now, that Aden Young deserves some recognition, if not the win. But unfortunately, as is the case with most of my favorite shows, it’s not likely to happen. If quality were the only factor. Sigh.May 26, 2015 at 7:43 pm #346669
was it officially announced that this is the final season?May 26, 2015 at 9:05 pm #346670
According to the first post in this thread, yes. But in searching the internet, I’m not finding anything official yet. Would be great if it weren’t true.June 17, 2015 at 12:49 pm #346671
Where does it say that this is going to be the final season of the show?June 17, 2015 at 2:44 pm #346672
I found this.
Rectify creator Ray McKinnon says he has “some ideas” on how the show will ultimately end.
While the trajectory of Rectify has yet to be fully mapped out after Sundance TV extended the six-part story into an ongoing series, McKinnon has some thoughts on how and when the critically acclaimed drama will ultimately end.
In an interview with Indiewire, McKinnon suggests that the series should have a maximum four-season run – though he admits that his views on the limited lifespan of the show could change:
“I have some ideas. I don’t know that this show should be on for a very long time. I don’t know if that’s best for this show. It may be, but I’m not sure at this point [..] I definitely have some end game ideas [on how it ends], but I can’t imagine this show going on for five or six or seven seasons. I don’t see that.
Doesn’t mean it couldn’t happen, just that my limited brain is unable to look that far ahead.”
