Hot on the heels of The First Purge comes The Purge TV series, which promises to get into the lives of people who are living with the one lawless night a year and what drives people to take advantage of it. Here’s the first look trailer…
“Based on the hit movie franchise from Blumhouse productions, THE PURGE revolves around a 12-hour period when all crime, including murder, is legal. Set in a dystopian America ruled by a totalitarian political party, the series follows several seemingly unrelated characters living in a small city. Tying them all together is a mysterious savior who’s impeccably equipped for everything the night throws at them. As the clock winds down with their fates hanging in the balance, each character is forced to reckon with their pasts as they discover how far they will go to survive the night.”
Purge creator James DeMonaco wrote the series, which stars Gabriel Chavarria, Lili Simmons, Lee Tergersen, Jessica Garza, Amanda Warren, Colin Woodell, Hannah Emily Anderson, William Baldwin and Fiona Dourif.
The Purge airs on USA on 4 September. No UK broadcaster has been announced. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
