While we’re gearing up for another “Purge” movie next week, you may have forgotten that this year we’ll be getting a double dose of “The Purge.” That’s right, there will be an unprecedented Purge event this year and you’ll be able to enjoy it from the comfort of your home.
USA Network will be premiering a ten episode “Purge” series exploring the lives of people swept up in the most chaotic night of the year. The series will premiere September 4th, but for now we’ve got a 40 second trailer to give us a taste of what this series will be like. Spoilers: it involves people in masks doing depraved stuff. Here’s how USA describes the series:
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.
