SundanceTV will debut its fourth and final season of its hit drama series Rectify on Oct. 26, said network officials.

The series, which follows the life of Daniel Holden (Aden Young), who returns to his small hometown in Georgia after serving 19 years on death row, will return for an eight episode fourth season run, said network officials.

"We remain so proud to have Rectify on SundanceTV,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV. “Ray McKinnon’s vision and the creative team’s execution of that vision have resulted in a story that epitomizes the idea of a great character drama.  It continues to resist the traps and clichés of a story about justice and reminds us that the justice system is ultimately about the human cost.   We look forward to sharing the final chapter of this amazing story with our viewers.”

Viewers will be able to catch up the first three seasons of Rectify on Netflix beginning Aug. 1, said the network.
