THE NUN - Official Teaser Trailer [HD]
Watch a TERRIFYING New Trailer for the 'Purge' TV Show
Not content with a slew of films – includingThe First Purge, the fourth movie in the series, set to premiere on July 4th – thePurgefranchise has branched out into the world of television. The "10-episode television event" is set to premiere on Tuesday, September 4 on the USA Network, and welp, it looks just as horrifying as its cinematic counterparts. If not more so, actually?
Despite earlier reports that series wouldn't actually take place on the infamous "Purge Night," the show's executive producer James DeMonaco recently clarified that itwillfeature heavily. "We follow four what-seem-to-be separate storylines of people going out on the evening and experiencing the Purge," he explained earlier this year. Per the series' officialsynopsis:[The show] revolves around a 12-hour period when all crime, including murder, is legal. Set in an altered America ruled by a totalitarian political party, the series follows several seemingly unrelated characters living in a small city. As the clock winds down, each character is forced to reckon with their past as they discover how far they will go to survive the night.
Given the trailer, it appears the show will lean in to the sociopolitical narratives the movie series has developed — specifically those relating to race, politics, and privilege in thePurgeuniverse.
Praising the benefits of taking a story such asThe Purgeto television, DeMonaco added: "The real estate of the 10 hours of the TV allows us to use flashback, where we flashback out of the Purge world, into the regular lives, the non-Purge days, of this future America... We get to see who these people are when it's not Purge Night and the events that led them to where they are on the particular Purge Night that we are following."
In other words, then, 10 hours-worth of storytelling is going to end up being much more intense (read: scary) than 2 hours in a cinema. Also, more time for all those fucked up Purge Night masks?!
