USA Renews The Purge for a Second Season
The USA Network has announced that they have renewed The Purge for a second season.
In a statement, Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, said, "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 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."
The series is based on The Purge film franchise in which a 12-hour period where all crimes are legal, takes place once a year.
Jason Blum of Blumhouse Television, along with Universal Cable Productions, is where the show hails from and he also commented on the renewal, saying, "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."
