During a 12-hour period when all crime - including murder - is legal, a group of seemingly unrelated characters cross paths in a city in an altered America. While the clock winds down, some will fight, some will hide, others will embrace what it means to Purge to its fullest extent - whether for revenge, personal gain, protection, or unadulterated glee. As each character is forced to reckon with their past and plot how to better their futures, they soon discover how far they will go on Purge Night.
- The Purge: Series 1 review by JR
I like the movies but I was skeptical about this series, however it's actually good.
It follows a number of different characters from just before a purge, through to the end of it, building the characters stories and how their paths cross thoughout the night.
I think if you like The Purge movies then you will like this. If you haven't seen The Purge movies I would recommend watching at least the first one before checking out this series, although it's not totally necessary because there are no character crossovers that I remember.
