Surviving the night is just the beginning.
The second season of USA Network’s “The Purge” is taking an interesting approach that we haven’t yet seen from the movies, exploring life *after* Purge Night. What is life like in America the other 364 days of the year? And is the annual Purge truly even helping to cut down overall crime the rest of the year? These questions and more will be answered in October.
Check out the official trailer below, along with the brand new key art.
“The Purge” revolves around a 12-hour period when all crime, including murder, is legal. Season 2 explores how a single Purge night affects the lives of four interconnected characters over the course of the ensuing year, all inevitably leading up to the next Purge.
The second season of the anthology series opens on Purge night but dives deeper than ever before in to what the Purge world looks like the other 364 days of the year.
Season 2 is executive produced by franchise creator James DeMonaco, who executive produces along with his partner for Man in a Tree, Sébastien K. Lemercier; Krystal Houghton Ziv, James Roland, Tim Andrew, and Jason Blum. Additionally, Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form serve as exec producers under the Platinum Dunes banner, as does Thomas Kelly.
The series is a co-production between Blumhouse Television and UCP.
