If you’re a fan of The Purge franchise, we have great news for you: apart from the upcoming prequel this July, there will be a TV series, which will be out this September!
Watch the trailer of the TV show below:
According to the show’s executive producer, James DeMonaco, who was interviewed by Entertainment Weekly, “We follow four what-seem-to-be separate storylines of people going out on the evening and experiencing the Purge. The real estate of the 10 hours of the TV allows us to use flashback, where we flashback out of the Purge world, into the regular lives, the non-Purge days, of this future America. We get to see who these people are when it’s not Purge Night and the events that led them to where they are on the particular Purge night that we are following. I think it’s a great device.”
In the film franchise, all crime is considered legal for 12 hours. The first film was released in 2013 and starred Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Adelaide Kane, and Max Burkholder. This was followed by Anarchy in 2014 and Election Year in 2016. Its fourth film, The First Purge, will be a prequel.
The TV show will have 10 episodes and will be released by the USA Network and Syfy.
