The series, which features Aussies Aden Young and Adelaide Clemens, premiered on SBS in January. Young plays Daniel Holden who, after 19 years in prison for the rape and murder of his girlfriend, is released when new DNA evidence reveals he was wrongly accused.
Season Two, which was approved prior to its debut season here, is currently airing in the US at 10 episodes.
“Rectify has evolved into a show much loved by critics and fans. As SundanceTV’s first scripted series, it’s gratifying to see such distinctive and unusual storytelling embraced with such passion. Ray McKinnon is a true television auteur, and we can’t wait to see where he takes us next,” said Sarah Barnett, SundanceTV President.
Rectify was certainly a slow-burner as a drama series and unsurprisingly, its ratings for SBS were pretty modest.
Do we have any love in the room for this show?
