Well this is interesting. Very interesting.
As we learned earlier this year, Blumhouse Television (a co-venture with ITV Studios and Universal Cable Productions) is currently developing a TV series set within the world of The Purge. The series, which will air on both USA and Syfy, is set to premiere in 2018, the same year that the next installment in the film franchise will arrive.
Via Deadline, Jason Blum spilled some beans about “The Purge” at NBCUniversal’s Monday upfront presentation today, revealing that the series will open up “an entirely new chapter in America’s 12 hours of annual lawlessness,” one that will “reveal to the fans what happens the other 364 days of the year and how that law affects people.”
Franchise creator James DeMonaco is writing, directing and executive producing. Platinum Dunes and Sebastien K. Lemercier will also be executive producing the series.
