With the debut season of The Purge currently streaming on Amazon here in the UK, now comes word that the USA Network has renewed the series for a second year.
On this news, NCUniversal Cable Entertainment’s Chris McCumber enthused, “USA Network is so proud to be the television home for the iconic franchise, The Purge. The partnership and creative trust of Jason Blum and everyone at Blumhouse Television and Universal Pictures ensure The Purge’s successful transition from film to TV – and, along with Universal Cable Productions, we look to digging even deeper into the mythology in Season 2.”
Jason Blum added, “James DeMonaco has done it again: the propulsive and compelling story he crafted for Season 1 of The Purge truly resonated with audiences in a significant way. We are thrilled to embark on Season 2, and can’t wait to bring more of James’ vision to USA and fans of The Purge.”
Expect more on The Purge’s second season as we get it.
