Who among us has not thought of living in a world without crime, without poverty and without unemployment. But such a world may not be as pleasant as it sounds. The Purge’s first two seasons have provided us with plenty of nail-biting and blood-curdling moments. Since then, fans have been waiting for The Purge season 3. So let’s talk about what we know about the third season.
USA Network’s The Purge is a grim dystopian drama series set in the same universe as the movie franchise of the same name. Created by James DeMonaco, the TV series debuted on the network in 2018 and has since conquered the hearts of fans with its unique concept.
Is The Purge Season 3 Coming?
The second season of The Purge TV Series premiered on USA Network on October 15, 2019. Although The Purge franchise is commercially successful, it has spawned five films. The US network canceled the Purge season in May 2021. The network has not provided a specific reason for cancellation. However, many people speculate that the declining ratings of the second season coupled with the high budget needed to produce the show is what caused the cancellation.
The Purge Season 3: What Could Have Happened?
After the New Founding Fathers of America hunted and executed civilians outside of Purge, a faction of opposition fighters formed post-Purge Night, according to season 2 of the television series The Purge. This move 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 is possible that Roan managed to abolish The Purge because she was elected at the end of the election year. Since the resistance group had just formed at the end of season two, it’s possible their formation was a precursor to Roan’s entire platform. And maybe she can explain why she chose to be governor.
Apart from sharing the same universe, both seasons of The Purge are set in different timelines and are not connected to each other. When the series returns for The Purge Season 3, it could follow an entirely different storyline. The Purge franchise plays with different timelines, time jumps and flashbacks. So it is very difficult to determine what the timeline of The Purge Season 3 will be.
Who’s coming in the third season?
In the Purge TV series, Gabriel Chavarria plays as Miguel Guerrero and his sister Penelope Guerrero is played by Jessica Garza. The show’s cast also includes Hannah Anderson as Jenna Betancourt, Amanda Warren as Jane Barbour, and Colin Woodell as Rick Betancourt.
In addition, other cast members on the show include 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?
With the fate of The Purge Season 3 at stake, The Purge TV series creator James DeMonaco spoke about his plans for a possible third season. DeMonaco talked about an 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 mind for the next season. James stated that he wanted to explore the idea of the Purge outside the country of the United States. He also said there was a political reason behind the show’s cancellation.
He stated, “No, between you and me, I wish the TV show went on. I had an idea for season 3 that I was really excited about. I was overseeing the show. And I wasn’t showing. But we had great showrunners both years and I worked very closely with them, so we had more places to explore.” He also added, “What I loved about the TV show was the fact that I had 10 hours to explore Purge’s conceit. It was a way of doing things like season 2 was between Purges. We could never do that in a movie. It was fun to go into the things that we could never go into with the movies.”
