Who amongst us hasn’t thought about living in a world with zero crime, zero poverty, and no unemployment. However, such a world may not be as pleasant as it sounds. The first two seasons of The Purge have given us enough nail-biting and blood-curdling moments. Since then, fans have been waiting for The Purge Season 3. So, let’s discuss what we know about the third season.
USA Network’s The Purge is a gritty dystopian drama series set in the same universe as the film franchise of the same name. Created by James DeMonaco, the Tv series debuted on the network in 2018, and since then, it has been ruling fans’ hearts with its unique concept.
Will There Be The Purge Season 3?
The second season of The Purge Tv Series premiered on USA Network on October 15, 2019. Even though The Purge franchise is commercially successful, that has spawned five movies. The USA network canceled the Purge Season in May 2021. The network has given no specific reason for cancelation. However, many people speculate the declining rating of the second season combined with the high budget required to produce the show has severed as the cause behind the cancelation.
The Purge Season 3: What Could’ve Happened?
After the New Founding Fathers of America hunting and executing civilians off-Purge leaked, a faction of opposition fighters formed post-Purge Night, according to Season 2 of The Purge television series. This movement may have influenced the developments of The Purge: Election Year. A contender, Charlie Roan, ran for President to destroy the NFFA and end The Purge.
It’s possible that Roan was successful in abolishing The Purge because she was elected at the conclusion of Election Year. Because the resistance faction was just formed by the end of season two, it’s possible that their formation was a precursor to Roan’s entire platform. And might be able to explain why she chose to run for governor in the first place.
Apart from sharing the same universe, both seasons of The Purge have been set in different timelines and aren’t connected. When the series returns for The Purge Season 3, it may follow an entirely different storyline. The Purge franchise plays with various timelines, time jumps, and flashbacks. Thus, it is very hard to determine what will be the timeline of The Purge Season 3.
Who Will Feature In The Third Season?
The Purge Tv series cast stars Gabriel Chavarria as Miguel Guerrero, and his sister Penelope Guerrero is played by Jessica Garza. The cast of the show also includes Hannah Anderson as Jenna Betancourt, Amanda Warren stars as Jane Barbour, and Colin Woodell plays Rick Betancourt.
In addition, other cast members in the show are Lili Simmons as Lila Stanton, Lee Tergesen as Joe Owens, Paola Núñez as Esme Carmona, and Joel Allen as Ben Gardner. Derek Luke joined the cast as Marcus Moore and Max Martini as Ryan Grant in the second season. When the series returns for The Purge Season 3, we expect it to bring back most of the existing cast members. On the other hand, the season may also bring some new faces.
What Did The Creator Say About The Purge Season 3?
While the fate of The Purge Season 3 is hanging in the balance, the creator of The Purge Tv series James DeMonaco talked about his plans for a potential third season. DeMonaco spoke about a pitched idea for season 3 of The Purge series. He stated that he was not happy with the way the show was canceled after the second season. He clarified that he had some ideas in his mind for the next season. James stated that he wanted the explore the idea of the Purge outside the country of the United States. He also mentioned that there was some political reason behind the show’s cancelation.
He stated, “No, between you and I, I wish the TV show went on. I had an idea for Season 3 that I was very excited by. I oversaw the show. and, I wasn’t show running. But we had great showrunners both years, and I was working very closely with them. So, we had more places that we wanted to explore.” He also added, ” What I liked about the TV show was the real estate of having 10 hours to explore the Purge conceit. It was a way to do things like how Season 2 was between Purges. We could never do that in a movie, ever. It was fun to go into the stuff that we could never go into with the films.”
