The movie-based drama will return for Season 2.
November 6, 2018
USA Network announced today that The Purge has been renewed for a second season. The good news comes ahead of tonight's Season 1 finale, which caps a successful debut run for the horror drama.
The hour-long series premiered in September and has gone on to become the cable network's top drama. While reviews have been mixed, this season it has so far averaged 2.3 million viewers (Live+7), with 1.2 million in the adults 18-49 demographic.
Based on the movie franchise of the same name, The Purge is set in an alternate version of America, where a totalitarian political party is in power. During a 12-hour period when all crime is legal, even murder, various seemingly-unrelated, conflicted residents of a small city go to great lengths to survive the night as the clock winds down.
Look for Season 2 of The Purge in 2019.

Limited series may refer to: A television series with a predetermined number of episodes telling a complete story arc, usually longer than a miniseries. It can also refer to a show the network wants to try out in smaller doses with the possibility of renewal based on how well it does in the ratings. Anthologies are also sometimes referred to as limited series.
Anyway, I liked the first season for the most part but honestly don't know how they will make a second. I'm not really interested in following Miguel and his sister as I found her super annoying. Maybe they are going to do the UK since it ended with them talking about the possibility of it starting over there.
Started watching this, and it was not too bad.
