Written, directed and executive produced by the film franchise creator James DeMonaco, the series had been described as “an entirely new chapter in America’s 12 hours of annual lawlessness.”

Blum today shed light on the premiere of the series with more details.In addition to a Purge, “it will reveal to the fans what happens the other 364 days of the year and how that law affects people,” he said.

Platinum Dunes and DeMonaco’s longtime producing partner Sebastien K. Lemercier will also executive produce the series. Tom Kelly serves as executive producer/showrunner.

The feature Purge franchise — about one day each year when murder and mayhem is legalized — has been on the rise, hatching its highest-grossing effort so far with the most recent third movie, The Purge: Election Year.
