Just before its fourth episode airs this Sunday, the life-after-death-row drama "Rectify" has been renewed by the Sundance Channel for a second season. Along with Jane Campion's gorgeous and moody miniseries "Top of the Lake"  (now streaming on Netflix), "Rectify" is part of the channel's recent dive into serialized, high-quality drama, much like sister network AMC, which aired the two-hour season premiere last Sunday.

Written and created by actor Ray McKinnon ("Mud"), who's had recurring roles on HBO's "Deadwood" and FX's "Sons of Anarchy, "Rectify" stars Aden Young as a man attempting to pick up the pieces after 20 years spent on death row (Indiewire's interview with McKinnon here). The series has already generated critical praise. You can watch the season premiere on Sundance Channel's website here.
