The Purge is going to invade our homes in a new TV series.
The show will be overseen by James DeMonaco who has written and directed all three of the films in the series to date. The movies take place in a dystopian America where every year there is a 12-hour period during which all crime – including murder – is legal.
Blumhouse Television will produce the series alongside Universal Cable Production, with the show set to air on USA Network and Syfy.
It's not clear yet whether it will arrive before the fourth Purge film hits cinemas on July 4, 2018.
In December, producer Jason Blum – head of Blumhouse Pictures – told us that a TV series for his franchise would "be fun to do" although they had no definitive plans at the time.
"The Purge definitely will continue in some way or another. We did a Purge live event, so I definitely want to continue playing with the idea, for sure," he explained.
The Purge series has made more than $300 million at the box office with its most recent film The Purge: Election Year its most successful to date at $118.6m – although we weren't the biggest fans.
