In 2018, franchise creator James DeMonaco (writer/director of The Purge, The Purge: Anarchy and The Purge: Election Year) revealed that he plans for the fifth movie in the series to be the last. Speaking with EW, DeMonaco said America’s annual 12-hour lawless rampage will come to an end.

“I think it’s a great way to end it all. We want to end it all, I think, in this one, and I’m very excited. When I came up with the idea and pitched it to everybody, they seemed psyched, and I think it will be a really cool ending, how we take this one home.”

The film will be produced by Jason Blum, Man In A Tree duo DeMonaco and Sébastien K. Lemercier, and Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form and is set to star Leven Rambin (True Detective) and be helmed by Everado Gout.

The Purge series kicked off in 2013 with the first film, a smaller scale home-invasion thriller starring Ethan Hawke. It went on to gross $89.3 million worldwide and kick started the franchise, which to date has pulled in $456.8 million in worldwide grosses across four films (with the total box office grosses for each film out gaining its predecessor).

The series made the transition to television in 2018 with the 10-episode event series of the same name on USA network and was successful enough to land a second season on the cable network, but was cancelled this week as NBCUniversal is reportedly looking to transition the network towards more live and unscripted content.
