The Purge TV Series trailer & premiere date

For those who may have forgotten, not only do we have a new entry in Blumhouse's THE PURGE series coming to theaters this July 4th with prequel THE FIRST PURGE, but there is also a THE PURGE: TV SERIES heading to USA and Syfy in the near-future as well. And today we have the new show's first trailer.

The series, which is being labeled a "10 episode television event series" will riot and rampage its way onto our TV screens on USA Network beginning September 4th. And just to make matters complicated, the premiere and finale episodes will be simulcast on SYFY. Because, why not at this point?

Anthony Hemingway (UNSOLVED: THE MURDERS OF TUPAC AND THE NOTORIOUS B.I.G. and AMERICAN CRIME STORY: THE PEOPLE V. O.J. SIMPSON) directs the premiere episode of the series which stars Gabriel Chavarria, Lili Simmons, Jessica Garza, Amanda Warren, Colin Woodell, Hannah Anderson, Lee Tergesen, William Baldwin, and Fiona Dourif.

THE PURGE revolves around 

A 12-hour period when all crime, including murder, is legal. Set in an altered America ruled by a totalitarian political party, the series follows several seemingly unrelated characters living in a small city. As the clock winds down, each character is forced to reckon with their past as they discover how far they will go to survive the night.

THE PURGE: TV SERIES is executive produced by the film franchise creator James DeMonaco and led by Jason Blum. Additionally, the entire team behind the franchise ‎are on board to executive produce: Michael Bay with Brad Fuller and Andrew Form under the Platinum Dunes banner and Sebastien K. Lemercier. Thomas Kelly serves as executive producer/showrunner of the series. Hemingway will also serve as executive producer on the premiere episode. 

THE PURGE will air on USA Network this fall starting September 4th, and the premiere and finale episodes will be simulcast on SYFY. Until then, check out the trailer below and then let us know what you think!
