Whether you’re a fan of the movie franchise or have been watching the television series, The Purge is still going strong and today we get a season two trailer from USA Network.
Set to a stylized version of the patriotic anthem The Battle Hymn of The Republic this season looks to take Purge night and extend it to an unofficial year-round event, with an emphasis on one character and his family who appear to be in the crosshairs of a masked gang.
Looking bloodier and more violent than ever, The Purge Season Two keeps with its tentpole source material focusing on society and its obsession with violence and vigilante justice.
This next series is set to premiere on October 15 at 9/8c on USA Network.
About THE PURGE:
