The first trailer for The Purge TV series is out, and we already can’t wait for the show to drop.
Check out the trailer below!
The show premieres Sep. 4 on USA for a 10-episode run slated to investigate what people in the films’ dystopian universe is up to on other days of the year—you know, the ones where they aren’t trying to kill anybody.
We recently found out that the series’ writer and director, James DeMonaco, is planning on making the show take place mostly on purge nights with flashbacks of those people living their day-to-day lives.
“We get to see who these people are when it’s not Purge Night and the events that led them to where they are on the particular Purge night that we are following.”
Per the synopsis, the show is set in a dystopian U.S. ruled by a totalitarian political party. The series “revolves around a 12-hour period when all crime, including murder, is legal.” It tells the story of “seemingly unrelated characters living in a small city” who are tied together by a mysterious savior.
As previously reported, the forthcoming television series began filming on May, and, in addition to the show airing on USA, the premiere and finale episodes will also be simulcast on Syfy.
The first trailer for the Purge was released at this year’s Comic-Con, and you can watch it below:
