Treadstone and The Purge Series Canceled

The upcoming season of television is going to be a dreary one for audiences expecting anything more than reality TV and animated programming. Not only has the spread of the coronavirus pandemic halted production on nearly all TV shows, but returning shows are going to struggle getting back to work. Since this uncertain environment has networks and cable channels tightening their belts, we’re starting to see a lot more shows get canceled, and USA has just axed two of their high profile titles: The Purge and Treadstone.

the forever purge

The title of the next Purge sequel has been revealed, and it’s pretty fitting: The Forever Purge. It’s as if the makers of the film realized that we’re already trapped in a never-ending nightmare, and they might as well take advantage of that with this title. The Purge is usually set on the one night of a year where all crime is legal, but throwing “forever” into the title suggests that The Purge has reached a point where it’s become an ongoing, constant source of turmoil. And we can all certainly relate to that.

the purge siren

In The Purge, a blaring siren signals the start of violence and mayhem as all crimes — including murder — become legal for 12 hours. It’s only the dystopian premise of a fictional horror series, thank goodness, but every once in a while, when the world gets really bad, the internet will joke that we’re not too far from going through a real-life Purge. So, at a time when the country is especially on edge amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it’s not a great coincidence when the police of Crowley, Louisiana used The Purge siren to signal the start of curfew.

the purge season 2

Like almost every Blumhouse production, The Purge began as a low-budget horror movie that made some serious cash as the box office.

The Next ‘Purge’ Movie Will End the Franchise

The Final Purge Movie

The Purge started with quite the enticing and unique concept: a 12-hour period where all crime is legal. While the first film squandered the premise a bit with your standard home invasion thriller, the sequels that followed took it in a more interesting direction, even if they still haven’t taken full advantage of the possibilities within The Purge universe.
