Regardless of what seems to be the overall dislike of the Purge franchise of films going forward, the television series that appears on USA on Tuesday Nights is approaching its second season finale and is going to have quite the special guest star.
USA announced that Ethan Hawke will be reprising his role as James Sandin, who hasn’t been seen since the end of the original Purge film, on the season 2 finale that airs on Tuesday, December 17th. You can see a look at Hawke in full character from the episode down below, which apparently takes place one week before the first Purge Night.
“Ethan Hawke, star of 2013’s “The Purge,” is back as James Sandin in the second season finale of USA’s THE PURGE. James Sandin is the security system salesman the original film follows as he tries to protect his family from home invaders during a purge night gone wrong.
James is featured in the finale’s cold open, which flashes back to one week before the first national purge and the first time his high-tech security system is tested.
Titled “7:01 AM,” the finale picks up as purge night rages on and Esme, Ryan, Marcus and Ben fight for their lives and their loved ones. It will air Tuesday, December 17 at 9/8C on USA Network.”
