USA Network’s The Purge was given the ax today. Season 2 had recently concluded on television and today sadly, the Purge Television Series has been canceled.
The Purge is based on the popular Purge movies. Having the same plot as the films, the shows brings you a group of people who desperately try to survive purge night.
The Purge premiered in September of 2018 on USA and starred Gabriel Chavarria, Hannah Emily Anderson, Jessica Garza, Lili Simmons, Amanda Warren, Colin Woodell, and Lee Tergesen, with Cindy Robinson reprising her role as the Purge Emergency Broadcast System, Megan Lewis. In November 2018, USA Network renewed the show for a second season which premiered on October 15, 2019. The first season took place in the year 2027, putting it in between Anarchy and Election Year on the timeline of the series. Now today the series is canceled after two seasons.
Both seasons were 10 episodes long. I will say that the show is just as wild and crazy like the other films and I am definitely sad to see this one go.
On a side note, there is a new purge film coming our way this summer that was recently titled The Forever Purge.
