For those unaware of the big-screen franchise, the Purge movies — of which there have been three, with a fourth on the way — take place in a dystopian version of the United States where all crimes, including murder, are legal for one night every year.
Chavarria’s character is a US Marine who returns to his hometown when his younger sister (Garzia), a member of a Purge-worshipping cult, discovers the “ghastly realities” of the annual event just as she’s set to become a human sacrifice.
Purge creator James DeMonaco will oversee production on the new series, which does not yet have a premiere date.
