Rectify (9pm, Sundance Channel) - If your cable package includes the Sundance Channel, don’t miss the Season 2 premiere of “Rectify,” an often overlooked but stunning drama about a man coping with life in his small hometown after being released from prison for a murder he (probably) didn’t commit. If you missed the first season, it’s streaming on Netflix. In tonight’s episode, Daniel’s family fears the worst after learning about his beating.

Also on tonight . . .
