Description: Based on the hit movie franchise from Blumhouse Productions, The Purge 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.

Status: The debut numbers for this show were good for a cable show these days, and it did not suffer too much from the loss of curious onlookers after the first episode. It was billed as a “10-Episode Television Event”, but that has been extended to a second season based on its good viewership stats.
