Season 2 of SundanceTV‘s original drama series Rectify will premiere on Thursday, June 19 at 9/8c.
The show tells the story of Daniel (played by Aden Young), a man who spent nearly two decades on death row for the rape and murder of his teenage girlfriend, then has his conviction vacated and gets released thanks to new DNA evidence.
In the new episodes, Daniel starts to become “an active participant in his life, making decisions and thinking about the future as he struggles to find meaning in a dangerous and unpredictable world,” previews the network. The second season “will also delve into the lives changed by Daniel’s return and the ripple effect his actions have on the people around him.”
