Are you excited for the fourth and final season of “Rectify”? It returns on October 26 to conclude the story of Daniel Holden (Aden Young), who spent half his life in prison on death row for the murder of his high school girlfriend until new DNA evidence caused his conviction to be vacated. But he hasn’t quite been exonerated, and the mystery of whether he really is guilty or innocent has been of the show’s most pressing questions. Even Daniel doesn’t know for sure, having experienced the events of that fateful night in a drug-fueled haze.
After three seasons “Rectify” has yet to be a contender at the Emmys despite its ample acclaim. It received a Peabody Award (2015), a Writers Guild nomination for the episode “Donald the Normal” (2014), a Television Critics Association nomination for Best Movie/Miniseries for its six-episode first season (2013), and five Critics’ Choice Award nominations, including Best Drama Series this past winter. But “The Americans” also had to wait four seasons until its first Emmy nom for Best Drama this year, so perhaps the fourth time will also be the charm for the SundanceTV drama.

John Chiras: Footage from the final season is amazing, as expected. I’ve said it before and I stand by it, this show is destined to be acknowledged as one of the all time greats in the long term … It all comes full circle, yet the show promises to echo life’s chaos, fluidity and uncertainty.
mafro987: Really excited for this! This will be the only season I watch up to date. I’ve never rated it as highly as some of its greatest advocates, but its certainly better than the Emmy drama nominees.
Denis: Caitlin FitzGerald!!!
