I've talked about The Purge franchise a few times on this site, including the upcoming TV show when it was first announced and now the show's first trailer is finally here.
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.
As you may know the movie The First Purge releases this July 4th. The TV series will air 2 months later on Tuesday, Septemeber 4th at 10PM/9PM CST on the USA NETWORK with the first and finale episode simulcast on SYFY. I can't wait for this show to start and how they will merge into the movie franchise. Anyways, Happy Purging folks!
