When Dr. Updale (Marisa Tomei) presents the chance for a risky, theoretical social experiment to become a live phenomenon, The Purge is born. Once Dmitri (Y’Lan Noel) is aware that his hometown of Staten Island has been selected to partake in the monumental social study that will forever change the way citizens interact with their government and neighbors alike, he naturally becomes suspicious of its purpose. Alongside community activist Nya (Lex Scott Davis) and her younger brother Isaiah (Joivan Wade), the three take to the streets of the first ever purge to protect their city and seek to survive at the risk of their own lives.

The story of The Purge will continue this fall on the small screen with the premiere of USA Network’s 10-episode television series THE PURGE on September 4 at 10/9c. The series follows several seemingly unrelated characters living in a small city. Tying them all together is a mysterious savior who’s impeccably equipped for everything the night throws at them. As the clock winds down with their fates hanging in the balance, each character is forced to reckon with their pasts as they discover how far they will go to survive the night. The series is written and executive produced by the film franchise creator James DeMonaco and led by Jason Blum. Thomas Kelly serves as executive producer/showrunner of the series. Emmy and Golden Globe award-winner Anthony Hemingway will direct and executive produce the premiere episode. The premiere and finale episodes will be simulcast on SYFY.
