‘Purge 5’ the latest chapter in Universal Pictures’ dystopian horror franchise, has been indefinitely delayed. The film, titled “The Forever Purge,” was set to release in theaters July 10 and has been pulled indefinitely from the studio’s release slate.
USA Network has cancelled The Purge and Treadstone, two highly-visible series based on theatrical properties.
The Purge, based on the Blumhouse horror franchise of the same name, made it through two seasons, with its season two finale airing back in December. Treadstone, a spinoff from The Bourne Identity, is the latest attempt by USA parent company NBC Universal to extend the life of that franchise. It was cancelled after only one season.
The long-running horror franchise The Purge is set to continue this year with a new entry. Up to this point, things have remained extremely hush hush about what Blumhouse Productions and Universal Pictures have in store for us on Purge night this time around.
However we have been given our first insight into this latest instalment with the reveal of the films titles.
