The Purge Moves To TV


The Purge film franchise which began in 2013 with the film starring Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey, spawned two sequels including last year's The Purge: Election Year and with Purge 4 set for a July 2018 release, will also be getting a television series from original writer/director James DeMonaco, and ITV Studios in cooperation with Universal Cable. The series will run on Syfy and USA.  EW has further details.

The dystopian horror franchise is developed around a post-economic-collapse U.S. in which a far Right political party called the New Founding Fathers of America are voted into office and pass the 28th Amendment, which creates an annual event called The Purge — in which all crime is legal for a twelve hour period once per year.
