For those who might be a bit behind on their news, not only do we have The First Purge AKA The Purge 4 on the way, but Blumhouse is also developing a TV series based on the series.
And speaking of “The Purge: The Series“, Gabriel Chavarria (War For the Planet of the Apes) and Jessica Garza have been cast as the leads in the new series for USA Network and Syfy.
Chavarria will play Miguel, “a US Marine with a hard edge and a noble mission. After receiving a cryptic letter from his little sister, Penelope (Garzia), he returns to town on Purge Night – prepared to face the senseless violence in the streets alone in order to protect what he loves most – his family.”
Garzia’s Penelope “belongs to a Purge-worshipping cult. Having pledged herself to be sacrificed at the behest of their charismatic leader, Penelope’s faith is tested when she is exposed to the ghastly realities of the Purge.”
Franchise creator James DeMonaco executive produces with Blumhouse, Platinum Dunes, and Sebastien K. Lemercier. The series is set to launch alongside The First Purge this summer.
