USA Network has brought The Purge to San Diego Comic-Con this year with an immersive Party City-style store and panel for the upcoming television series, “The Purge.”
Based on the film franchise, this series will make its debut on USA Tuesday, Sept. 4 at 10/9c.
To promote this new series, USA has opened the doors to America’s first “Purge City” store, an immersive, tongue-in-cheek experience that transports fans to the world of “The Purge.”
Fans can pick up items to make their Purge Night perfect, and friendly “Purge City” staff members are on hand to help them browse the aisles filled with supplies from emergency candles and masks to energy drinks and baseball bats – all to help keep citizens safe during the 12 hours of the annual event.
