The trailer for The Purge TV series just debuted, and it quells any fears that the show might not take place on Purge night. (Previous reports indicated it wouldn't.)

"Set in a dystopian America ruled by a totalitarian political party, the series follows several seemingly unrelated characters living in a small city," the official synopsis reads.

"Tying them all together is a mysterious savior who’s impeccably equipped for everything the night throws at them. As the clock winds down with their fates hanging in the balance, each character is forced to reckon with their pasts as they discover how far they will go to survive the night."
