There’s still a lot of future potential for the franchise of “The Purge,” so, if you’re a fan of the films, you’ll be pleased to hear that filming is underway. The first film in the series was released in 2013 and shocked audiences around the globe with its concept of citizens having an entire 12 hours to commit whatever crimes they wish without facing any consequences. Whilst the three – soon to be four – films aren’t inherently linked with a continuous storyline, they all focus on a dystopian-style America.

The series is currently filming

Whilst the film franchise has received a lot of political debate and gained a mixed reception from audiences, it seems the producers of the film still have quite a few ideas in the mix in terms of how to further expand “The Purge.” Despite the disputes amongst viewers of the films, the three existing Movies in the franchise made a total profit of over 1,179 percent.

Some may say it’s a tiresome rehash of the horror and slasher genre, but there’s no doubt that there’s still a lot of industry interest in the continuation of the franchise at the same time.

A report by Bloody Disgusting has confirmed that they have just received word that the series is now filming. The creator of the franchise, James DeMonaco, will go on to act as one of the main executive producers for the television series, alongside the rest of the entire team behind the blockbuster series. With that in mind, it’s safe to say that audiences should expect a lot more mayhem in the upcoming series.

The TV adaptation will premiere on USA this Fall

Along with the confirmation of the start of shooting, we also now know that the series will premiere on USA this Fall. As far as the cast goes, we have a good idea in terms of the faces we will be seeing in the forthcoming episodes, with the likes of “Unsane [VIDEO]” star Colin Woodell and “Ray Donovan” star Lili Simmons in the cast.

The premiere and finale episodes will also air on the SyFy channel.

That’s not all, either, as the producers have confirmed that the fourth film in the series, which will be titled “The First Purge” and will be set as a prequel, will be released later this year in July. The prequel is said to look at how the society of America came to accept the ideology of the Purge and how it developed into what has previously been showcased in the first three films.

DeMonaco sure does have a lot on his plate, though fans can only hope it pays off for all involved.
