In just a few short years, The Purge has entered our pop culture lexicon in a big way. Whether you’re a fan of gratuitous horror or not, there are plenty of stories to tell within the premise of the government allowing 12 hours of slaughter each year. Off that idea alone, we’ve gotten three Purge movies, numerous comedy spoofs (most famously in a great episode of Rick and Morty), and a bigger splatter than I’m comfortable with of purge jokes.
Universal Cable Productions and Blumhouse Television are currently airing The Purge TV series on USA Network and Syfy. The series has been greenlit for 10 episodes.
