Audiences are blown away by USA Network’s new terrifying series, THE PURGE, the thrilling spinoff of the popular film franchise of the same name, from Blumhouse Television and Universal Cable Productions. The series plays off the plot of the well-known Blumhouse movies, where several unrelated people discover what measures they are willing to take in order to survive a night where all crime is legal for 12 hours. Building on an already strong fan base among enthusiasts of the films as well as attracting new viewers, the series leaves audiences wanting more after every tantalizing and tension-filled scene counting down to the Purge Commencement. Now fans everywhere can own all ten episodes of the stirring series when THE PURGE: SEASON ONEarrives on Blu-RayTM and DVD from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment on January 8, 2019.

During a 12-hour period when all crime — including murder — is legal, a group of seemingly unrelated characters cross paths in a city in an altered America.  While the clock winds down, some will fight, some will hide, others will embrace what it means to Purge to its fullest extent—whether for revenge, personal gain, protection, or unadulterated glee.  As each character is forced to reckon with their past and plot how to better their futures, they soon discover how far they will go on Purge Night.  Dive deep into the psyche of the Purgers with Season 1 of the series that critics rave is “bloody good fun” (AV Club).

THE PURGE: SEASON ONE was executive produced by the film franchise creator James DeMonacoand Thomas Kelly. Additionally, the entire team behind the blockbuster franchise ‎executive produced: Michael Bay with Brad Fuller and Andrew Form under the Platinum Dunes banner (A Quiet PlaceOuija series) and Sebastien K. Lemercier (Assault on Precinct 13Four Lovers). The series is a co-production with Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Television and Universal Cable Productions.
