For series two, the show will explore how one Purge night – where all crimes are legal for a 12-hour period – affects the lives of four interconnected characters over the course of a year.

The drama, set in a near-future dystopian America, sees Derek Luke play an accomplished professional named Marcus Moore and Max Martini as the heist-planning Ryan Grant.

They are joined by Paola Nuñez as Esme Carmona, a top employee at a government surveillance center and Joel Allen as Ben, a fraternity member.

The first movie was released in 2013 with sequels hitting cinemas in 2014, 2016 and 2018.

A fifth film, The Purge 5 is scheduled for release next year.

Meanwhile series one of The Purge TV series aired on USA Network in September last year.

It focused on four different characters; Miguel Guerrero, a Marine searching for his sister Penelope who has joined a death cult, Jane Barbour, an executive who uses the Purge as an opportunity for revenge; and Jenna and Rick Betancourt, married entrepreneurs who attend a Purge party to seek investment capital from a wealthy Purge supporter.

The TV series is executive-produced by James Demonaco, who created and directed the first three Purge movies.


He recently said of the every changing cast: “We love all the characters, but… you know, we’ll have a lot of new characters.”

“I think the beauty of [it] is that with each new Purge, we could have new faces that emerge.

“So unlike a lot of shows, which have to have people coming back, we’re not bound to that.

“So yeah, there is talk about bringing, I’ll say some people, back.”
