Sundance will bring its critically hailed, Peabody Award-winning drama “Rectify” to a close with its fourth season.
The show goes back into production in April and will air its last season — what creator Ray McKinnon is calling a “non-end” — in the fall.
“I have always felt that ‘Rectify’ could end at any time or just as easily continue,” McKinnon says. “Well, not easily. But there is no perfect ‘end’ for this story nor for these characters. They will continue to live on. We just won’t document them any longer. And the timing of this ‘non-end’ end feels exactly right.”
Sundance has also announced premiere dates for three short-run series in the spring. “Hap and Leonard,” starring James Purefoy, Michael Kenneth Williams and Christina Hendricks, debuts March 2. It will be followed on April 13 by “The Last Panthers,” about an international investigation into a diamond heist. From April 24-26, the channel will air “Rebellion,” an Irish miniseries about the 1916 Easter Uprising.
