USA Renews 'The Purge' for Season 2

Ahead of tonight's season finale, USA has renewed its original drama series The Purge for a second season. The drama will return with new episodes in 2019.

The drama stars Gabriel Chavarria, Hannah Anderson, Jessica Garza, Lili Simmons, Amanda Warren, Colin Woodell and Lee Tergesen.

James DeMonaco created the drama, with Thomas Kelly serving as showrunner for the first season. They executive produce with Jason Blum, Michael Bay, Andrew Form, Brad Fuller, Sebastien K. Lemercier and Anthony Hemingway. Universal Cable Productions, Blumhouse Television and Platinum Dunes produce.

"USA Network is so proud to be the television home for the iconic franchise The Purge," said Chris McCumber, President of Entertainment Networks, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. "The partnership and creative trust of Jason Blum and everyone at Blumhouse Television and Universal Pictures ensured The Purge's successful transition from film to TV - and along with Universal Cable Productions, we look forward to digging even deeper into the mythology in season two."

"James DeMonaco has done it again: The propulsive and compelling story he created for season one of The Purge truly resonated with audiences in a significant way," said Blum. "We are thrilled to embark on season two and can't wait to bring more of James' vision to USA and fans of The Purge."
