Sundance Channel Renews 'Rectify' for Season Two

Network's First Wholly Owned Scripted Series Gets 10 New Episodes

Sundance Channel has renewed Rectify for a second season, just over a week after the series' premiere.

Rectify, Sundance Channel's first wholly-owned scripted series, will return in 2014 with 10 new episodes, slated to begin production later this year. Its first season finale will air May 20 at 10 p.m.

"The response to Rectify has been incredible," said Sarah Barnett, president and GM, Sundance Channel, in announcing the renewal. "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."

The series is created and written by Ray McKinnon and executive produced by Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein, producers of sibling network AMC's Breaking Bad.
