The full trailer has arrived for The Purge series, unveiling much more of the franchise’s upcoming television chapter.
Yep, it’s another 12-hour period in the US, when all crime, including murder, is legal. We’re following several seemingly unrelated characters living in a small city this time around, and they’re all connected by a mysterious saviour.
It’s basically looking like another chapter of what’s come before in the four Purge films, although this one happens to be made up of 10 episodes. Essentially, it means you’re likely in for another solid chapter if you’re a fan of the films, especially with franchise creator James DeMonaco on board as writer. Check out the trailer below.
The Purge, starring Gabriel Chavarria, Lili Simmons, Lee Tergesen, Jessica Garza, Amanda Warren, Colin Woodell, Hannah Emily Anderson, William Baldwin and Fiona Dourif, will premiere on USA Network on September 4.
