This article is just a speculation about what could happen, but it sounds very promising if the 5th movie is the final one to end the saga. In that case they really need Charlie Roan back so Elizabeth needs to be in it as the President of the United States. WOW! How cool would it be? She was a senator running for the White House, but in this movie she could actually be the President.
According to creator James DeMonaco, The Purge 5 will be the final movie of the series.
The Purge 5 release date: When can we expect it?
Universal has confirmed that the fifth movie will be released on July 10, 2020 in US cinemas, but there’s not yet a confirmed UK date.
The movie is currently untitled, although maybe if DeMonaco says is true, perhaps we can expect something along the fate-tempting lines of The Last Purge or The Final Purge.
The Purge 5 plot: How did we leave things?
Chronologically, we can expect The Purge 5 to follow on from The Purge: Election Year as The First Purge was, as the title suggests, a prequel to the entire series.
Election Year ended with anti-Purge US Senator Charlie Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell) winning the US Presidential election in a landslide, despite the attempts of the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) to kill her during Purge night.
So could the fifth movie follow her attempts to end the Purge once and for all? That certainly seems to be the way it’s going, but it seems unlikely that we’ll have a Purge movie without an actual Purge.
“I have it in my head. 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,” DeMonaco – who’s written all four movies and directed the original trilogy – said of the idea for the fifth movie.
“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.”
The Purge 5 cast: Anyone coming back?
Each Purge movie usually has a new cast ready to try their luck on Purge night, but if this is the final one, then we could expect some returning names.
Most likely to make a comeback are Elizabeth Mitchell as US senator Charlie Roan, now the President of the United States, and Frank Grillo as Leo Barnes, now the Director of the Secret Service.
It’s tricky to say who else could return until we know more about the movie’s plot, but perhaps we could see some crossover with the TV show?
There was only a minor link in the first season, but since it’s been planned as an anthology show, season two could tie in more directly with the new movie. Producer Jason Blum hadn’t ruled out a crossover between the two before the release of the first season.
“Eventually, maybe one day, we’ll connect them, but we really invested new characters for the television series,” he said.
The Purge 5 trailer: When will it land?
You’re probably looking at early 2020 for your first look at The Purge 5 as the first trailer for The First Purge only arrived in April 2018, three months before the movie’s release.
The Purge 5 is released on July 10, 2020.
