About 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 an altered America ruled by a totalitarian political party, the series follows several seemingly unrelated characters living in a small city. As the clock winds down, each character is forced to reckon with their past as they discover how far they will go to survive the night. The 10-episode event series is written and executive produced by the film franchise creator James DeMonaco and led by Jason Blum.
The Purge premiere will be simulcast on USA Network and SYFY on Tuesday, September 4 at 10/9C.
