The Purge TV Series Casts Gabriel Chavarria & Jessica Garza as Leads

The Purge franchise’s spinoff television series has found its leads in East Los High’s Gabriel Chavarria and Six’s Jessica Garza, according to a report via Deadline. Series creator James DeMonaco is helming the show for Blumhouse Productions’ television division, Blumhouse Television.

Chavarria’s role is that of a Marine, who has “a hard edge and a noble mission.” After receiving a mysterious message from his younger sister, Garza’s character Penelope, Miguel returns home on the night of the Purge to protect his family.

As a member of a Purge-worshipping cult, Penelope has promised to sacrifice herself “at the behest of [the cult’s] charismatic leader.” Upon making a chilling discovery about the true nature of Purge Night, Penelope’s faith in the cult is tested.
