The Purge franchise has been a massive success with each movie grossing more than the last. Part of the reason for that might be its incredibly interesting concept which is that “The Purge” is when for 12 hours every year, all crimes are legal including rape and murder. With three Purge films already released it begs the question, how many more of these movies will we get with the same plot? Well according to Collider, it seems that creator James DeMonaco might have some new ideas.
DeMonaco actually believes that television is in the future for the horror franchise saying that an anthology series could be on the way. “Yes! Not an anthology… I guess kind of an anthology – more of an interwoven anthology. They came to me about a TV show, my idea is that you do six or seven storylines. And I would kind of intercut them, use flashbacks”, said DeMonaco.
This sounds like a great idea to really spice up a franchise that is pretty much rinse and repeat foe the most part. Though the most recent movie in the series titled, The Purge: Election Year focused on protecting a presidential candidate from the annual crime spree, it still was again, very much the same thing. It seems that plans are still in development for the popular franchise to move to television but once we receive more information, you’ll be the first ones to know!
