USA Network has picked up a second season of The Purge, a co-production with Blumhouse Television and Universal Cable Productions.
Based on the hit movie franchise from Blumhouse Productions, The Purge is set within a 12-hour period when all crime, including murder, is legal. Season one aired its finale on USA Network last night.
“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. “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 two.”
“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 two, and can’t wait to bring more of James’ vision to USA and fans of The Purge.”
