Purge if you dare.

In anticipation of The Purge television series – based on the popular movie franchise of the same name – USA has created six creepy new posters ahead of the show’s September 4 premiere, designed to give viewers an insight into the chaos of Purge night from the perspectives of the various characters caught up in the madness, including “the Purgers who believe wholeheartedly in the holiday, those seeking solace in the chaos, and the Elite who may approach this holiday in a more discrete yet conniving way.” IGN has an exclusive sneak peek at the new artwork, so click through the slideshow below to immerse yourself in the insanity.

The Purge TV series follows a new group of characters and is set 10 years after the events of the recent prequel, The First Purge, which portrayed what life was like during the time when the New Founding Fathers first attempted to make this day of mayhem legal.

At San Diego Comic-Con 2018, series creator James DeMonaco described what fans of the Purge franchise can expect from the new series when it debuts.

“I think time was the biggest factor [in the show],” DeMonaco said of the benefits of doing a show with 10 episodes versus a movie. “We see how this society exists within the Purge landscape, how people act towards each other in this world. It’s a much more polite society … And also [answers] questions we’ve been asked. What happens in hospitals on Purge night?”

According to USA, The Purge series “revolves around a 12-hour period when all crime, including murder, is legal. Set in an altered America ruled by a totalitarian political party, the series follows several seemingly unrelated characters living in a small city. As the clock winds down, each character is forced to reckon with their past as they discover how far they will go to survive the night.”

The Purge series is set to premiere on USA on September 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. If you need a refresher on the franchise, check out our guide to The Purge universe.
