Tv Season Info

Season 3 of this Southern drama picks up immediately where it left off, with Daniel (Aden Young) accepting a plea bargain. The results of this deal further divide the family, leaving many in limbo. Heartbroken by her brother's decision, Amantha (Abigail Spencer) tries to move on and live a life that doesn't revolve around him. Still feeling disconnected from the family since Daniel's release, Teddy (Clayne Crawford) and Tawney (Adelaide Clemens) question the future of their marriage. But will the knowledge of Daniel's assault on Teddy change things? Meanwhile, the relationship between Janet (J. Smith Cameron) and Ted, Sr. (Bruce McKinnon) is also challenged as a result of Daniel's actions. The discovery of the body of a missing person leads Daniel to be questioned once again, making it seem as though he will never truly be free.

Critic Reviews for Rectify Season 3

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (11)

Rectify can be both hypnotic and heart-wrenching for viewers who have invested in these characters throughout the first two seasons.

The boldest new injection comes via flashback, a consistently and effectively utilized path into Daniel's headspace.

Thursday's premiere is very good indeed -- picking up days, even hours, after Daniel's plea.

There's enough to the central plot to make for engrossing drama, but Rectify's true power comes from the smaller character moments and its mesmerizing dialogue.

Jul 9, 2015 | Full Review…

You have to love Daniel's dry humor, whether or not it's always intentional. That's just one of the qualities that makes it easy to forget he has a violent side.

Jun 20, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Season 3 keeps Rectify as compelling and challenging as summer TV usually gets.

Jul 6, 2015 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

No series uses quiet to suggest the turbulent depths of unsettled lives with more effectiveness than the subtly affecting and powerful human drama Rectify.

Jul 6, 2015 | Full Review…

Dang it, Teddy. Just when I want to hit you I want to hug you.

Jul 20, 2015 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

The continuing murder case provides some plot drive, but Rectify's main investigation is spiritual: into forgiveness, grace, the holiness of moments in a finite life.

Jul 7, 2015 | Full Review…

Anchoring everything is Young's remarkable work in the lead role, playing a man whose impassive demeanor only occasionally hints at his inner turmoil, illustrated in part through the judicious use of flashbacks to his time in prison.
