The Purge season 2 will continue to terrify citizens everywhere. Just ahead of the season finale, the USA Network confirmed The Purge season 2 renewal, another sign of the network’s continued commitment to scripted genre programming. Who would have thought that a series of subversive b-movies would spark a successful TV series, right?
The first season was executive produced by James DeMonaco (the creator of the franchise and director of all but one of the films) and Thomas Kelly. Presumably DeMonaco, ringmaster of all things Purge related, will return for The Purge season 2.
“USA Network is so proud to be the television home for the iconic franchise, The Purge,” said Chris McCumber, President of Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, in a statement. “The partnership and creative trust of Jason Blum and everyone at Blumhouse Television and Universal Pictures ensured The Purge’s successful transition from film to TV – and, along with Universal Cable Productions, we look forward to digging even deeper into the mythology in season 2.”
“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,” said Jason Blum, founder of Blumhouse. “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.”
