The Next Purge Movie May Be the Last
Series writer and director James DeMonaco has an idea for how he wants to end the franchise.

The Purge franchise might be nearing its end, according to James DeMonaco, who has written all four films and directed the first three. In a recent chat with EW, DeMonaco discussed his ideas for the next sequel and revealed that they believe they have a great way to "end it all." Five films, if you are counting the next upcoming installment, and a television series is not a bad run by any means but this news has certainly arrived suddenly for fans of the anarchy-driven franchise.
However, DeMonaco is apparently very excited for whatever ending he has planned and it just might be the right time to do it. You can read his full comments below.
I have it in my head. I think I’m going to write it. I think it’s a great way to end it all. We want to end it all, I think, in this one, and I’m very excited. When I came up with the idea and pitched it to everybody, they seemed psyched, and I think it will be a really cool ending, how we take this one home.
As previously mentioned, this movie will be the fifth in the series while the television series is currently ongoing with two more episodes to go. We are unsure if the show will continue past the first season but it is certainly possible, especially if another film will be going into development. That film has yet to be written, though, so it could still be a while before The Purge comes to an end.
We'll have more news and updates on each of those points whenever we hear more.
