Where is The Purge filmed? Filming Locations for the Tv Series

Where was The Purge filmed

Posted by
What if one night a year, for 10 continuous hours all crime was legal, including murder? Described by its creators as a cautionary tale, The Purge is the new 10-episode series from USA Network, based on the movie franchise of the same name.

The show focuses on the purge night, but it also includes flashbacks with people planning. This way the plot can go deeper than the four previous movies, exploring and expanding the characters and their motivations to participate or to hide from this terrifying annual holiday.

The Purge series was filmed in New Orleans, Louisiana. These are some of the most relevant spoiler-free filming locations for the show:

The Purge city
The Purge gala is held at the Brown Mansion (4717 St. Charles Ave), a Romanesque Revival house from 1904, doubling as the Stanton Mansion.
