The Purge, the terrifying and well-liked dystopian horror anthology genre, will soon have its sixth installment. The release date for the sixth installment of the horror-action franchise The Purge has not been announced. However, it has come to light that James DeMonaco is working as both the film’s screenwriter and director.
All five films in the series have been written by DeMonaco, and he has also directed the first three installments. The filmmaker announced in July 2021 that Frank Grillo’s Leo Barnes will be the main character in the sixth film. The Purge: Anarchy (2014 film) and The Purge: Election Year (2016 film) both included the character. So, you can count on Frank Grillo to be back for the next chapter.
The Purge 6 Release Date
There is currently no set date for the release of The Purge 6. It may, however, appear in stores by the end of 2024 or the beginning of the year 2025.
Due to the delay in beginning production, the projected delivery dates of late 2024 and early to mid-2025 are inaccurate. Production is expected to start later this year or early in 2018. The screenplay is finished, so now we just need the green light from the producers to start shooting. Fans, however, should also prepare for a release date in 2026. This is due to the fact that although the WGA strikes have ended, the SAG-AFTRA strikes have not. Given the state of knowledge at the time of writing, these are best guesses.
About The Purge
Inspired by the Star Trek: The Original Series episode “The Return of the Archons,” The Purge is an American anthology media franchise centered on a series of dystopian action horror films distributed by Universal Pictures and produced by Blumhouse Productions and Platinum Dunes. In the movies, life in the near future seems to be normal and crime-free [citation required]. However, this is a dystopian nation that celebrates “the Purge” once a year, at which time any violent acts, including murder, are legalized for 12 hours.
DeMonaco, who also directed two sequels and penned the scripts for all of the films in the series, created the franchise in 2013 with The Purge. On July 2, 2021, the fifth episode, titled The Forever Purge, was published. The film series was followed by a television adaptation with twenty episodes that debuted on September 4, 2018, and will wrap up on December 17, 2019. The first episode was written by DeMonaco. Critical reaction has been mixed, however, the series as a whole has made nearly $450 million on a total budget of about $53 million.
The Purge 6 Cast
It’s anyone’s guess who will be returning for The Purge 6. The latest film in the series was released ten years ago. As a result, the likelihood of a reunion of the original cast is slim at best. On the other hand, Frank Grillo will likely return to the small screen. Ana de la Reguera (Adela) and Tenoch Huerta (Juan) are two more names on the list who are likely to return. Also expected to return for The Purge 6 is Elizabeth Mitchell’s anti-Purge politician Charlie Roan from the film Election Year. However, the cast has not been officially announced.
The Purge 6: Will Frank Grillo return?
DeMonaco claims that Frank Grillo, who played retired police sergeant Leo Barnes in the second and third films in The Purge, will be back for the sixth film in the series. His viewers are no doubt thrilled to see him returning to action as he struggles for survival once again.
The Purge 6 Plot
There has been no official word on what will happen in The Purge 6, thus yet. However, insiders have suggested that the sixth episode would pick up just where the fifth left off. The stories of The Forever Purge, then, need to be discussed at length.
Multiple political events in the year 2048 were shown in the film. In an election for president that took place eight years earlier, the NFFA was back in power. After they were reinstated, racism and nationalism flourished all throughout the country. In the meantime, Juan and Adela had already traveled to Texas from Mexico. In reality, a drug gang was chasing after the pair. They even integrated into the migrant community. However, the film ends with a nation that is deeply divided.
Recent reports claimed that DeMonaco emphasized sexuality and religion as potential plot points in The Purge 6. In addition, the director has bigger plans for the production budget than for any previous sequel.
