UPDATED: The second season of The Purge will receive its UK premiere on Amazon Prime Video UK on Friday October 18th, it has been announced.
New episodes will then continue to be made available to UK Prime members every Friday, less than 24 hours after they air on USA Network in the United States
The Purge revolves around a 12-hour period when all crime, including murder, is legal. Set in an altered America ruled by a totalitarian political party, the series follows several seemingly unrelated characters living in a small city. As the clock winds down, each character is forced to reckon with their past as they discover how far they will go to survive the night.
The ten episode series, which is based on the movie franchise of the same name, is produced by Blumhouse Productions, Platinum Dune and Universal Cable Productions and stars Derek Luke (13 Reasons Why), Max Martini (Pacific Rim), Paola Nuñez (The Son) and Joel Allen (Never Goin’ Back). The second season explores how a single Purge night affects the lives of four interconnected characters over the course of the ensuing year, all inevitably leading up to the next Purge.
