Something happens during The Purge, right? All crimes are legal for 12 hours a night a year. However, US manufacturers The purge The TV series reveal that creator James DeMonaco has some rules. A group of people is not allowed to participate in the new national pastime.
Executive producers Krystal Ziv and James Ramone spoke on the phone with Showbiz Cheat Sheet for season 2. They revealed the idea that DeMonaco vetoed and what other aspects they were allowed to explore this season. We will have more with the cast and creators of The purge on the Showbiz cheat sheet. The show is scheduled for Tuesday, October 15th at 9:00 pm in the United States.
James DeMonaco would not have allowed these characters to eliminate
Season 2 takes place the rest of the year. Ziv and Ramone had a clever idea of something that could happen before Purge night, but violated one of DeMonaco's cardinal rules.
"In one of the later episodes in which it is Purge Eve, we had the idea that children go out in front of sirens and that they purify or treat," said Ramone. "It was a little too close to the children involved in The Purge. The implication was that obviously this is just before and not during, but somehow the line fades too much. "
So this is the only rule. Children cannot eliminate.
"James Demonaco is very large for children who do not participate in Purge, so it was solved," Ramone said. "It was one thing."
But haven't we seen children bleed in the movies?
Election year Candy Girl attacked the shop owner who caught her stealing.
"He basically said 18, so I guess we can assume that Candy Girl is 18," Ziv said.
In the original film, Ethan Hawke and Lena Heady had children. They were trying to stay closed at home, so presumably the children wouldn't be allowed to participate even if they wanted to.
"I think if people break into your house, obviously some people could break the rules, but it seems like children should be banned," Ziv said. "Even in the first season, the children hid on Purge's night but it was very clear, they are not participating".
Season two enjoyed answering fan questions
The franchise has such a fascinating premise that leads fans to speculate about the minutiae that surround it. Season 2 explores some of these questions.
"This was a great springboard for us in the room," said Ramone. "It's kind of two things when you sit down and think about it. Do you think of all the geek thread in Reddit that makes the bodies clean up? How does the NFFA rule crime during the year? There should be none. "
From time to time, DeMonaco came in and said they had gone too far.
"He spent a lot of time thinking about the world of Purge and how it works," said Ziv. "Sometimes you throw something and he says" I think we're breaking the universe here. Let's think about this. "It was mainly about those big global rules."
Season 2 will show more Purges
Just because the second season takes place in the year between does not mean you run away. The season will include flashbacks of previous Purges in relation to the characters.
"Remember in the first season, the current timeline was during one night of Purge and then every episode, there were flashbacks to some spare time from Purge", Ramone siad. "In the beginning, we thought right, and if we reversed it this season? In the end we were not so tied to that format, but three of the main characters each have an episode dedicated to flashbacks that tell you who they were before. "
The films have expanded The first purge to the presumably final one in Election year. The show had room to play in the past.
"We weren't very specific, but we were saying that it happened before," Ziv said. "On the Comic-Con panel, James [DeMonaco] suggested that the next film could play with the mythology of Election year. What happened to you after the elections? It may not have been the end. "
