Believe it or not, the people in the Purge movie universe are still purging, despite the fact that it’s gone horribly wrong many, many times. The Forever Purge, aka The Purge 5, is coming to theaters this weekend and will serve as a direct sequel to 2016’s The Purge: Election Year.
Said to be the final film in the franchise, the film stars Ana de la Reguera and Tenoch Huerta as a couple from Mexico on the run from the drug cartel who end up stranded on a ranch in Texas. Despite the fact that the Purge event has been outlawed, a group of outsiders at the ranch are illegally continuing the tradition, as this unlucky couple is about to find out. Also starring Josh Lucas, Cassidy Freeman, and Will Patton, The Forever Purge promises to deliver a violent and horrific ending the dystopian franchise.
No doubt horrific violence is exactly what fans of The Purge are hoping for, so here’s everything you need to know about where to watch The Forever Purge, and when you can expect The Forever Purge to be on streaming.
WHERE TO WATCH THE FOREVER PURGE:
You can watch The Forever Purge in theaters beginning on Friday, July 2. You can find a showing at a movie theater near you here.
CAN I WATCH THE FOREVER PURGE ON STREAMING?
Not right now. Currently, the only way to watch The Forever Purge is in a movie theater. However, you may not have to wait long to catch the film on demand. Read on to find out what we know about when The Forever Purge will be available to rent on digital.
WHEN WILL THE FOREVER PURGE BE ON STREAMING?
There is not an official digital release date for The Forever Purge yet, but you might be able to rent The Forever Purge on digital platforms as soon as mid-July.
Universal has a deal that allows the studio to release its films on premium video-on-demand—meaning you would be able to rent the movie for $20—after 17 days in theaters, if the film makes less than $50 million at the opening weekend box office. If the movie hits the $50 million mark, it will be released on PVOD after 31 days.
So if The Forever Purge makes less than $50 million this weekend, then you may be able to rent it on digital platforms as soon as July 20. (Universal does not have to release the movie on-demand after 17 days, but in general, that is what the studio has been doing for its other films, including Nobody.) If the movie hits the $50 million mark this weekend, you will most likley be able to rent it at the beginning of August.
WILL THE FOREVER PURGE BE ON HBO MAX?
No. While HBO Max—which is owned by Warner Media—is the streaming home for Warner Bros. blockbusters like In The Heights, the upcoming Forever Purge movie is a Universal film, and not a Warner Bros. film. Therefore, The Forever Purge will not be on HBO Max. At least, not right away.
It is possible that The Forever Purge will be on HBO Max in the distant future—after The Forever Purge releases on DVD— if the deal to send Universal movies to HBO Max gets renewed. After that, The Forever Purge will be available on Peacock, the NBC Universal streaming service. But we’ll just have to wait and see.
IS THE FOREVER PURGE ON NETFLIX?
No. The Forever Purge is not on Netflix, and it most likely will not be on Netflix any time soon. Universal has made deals with Netflix in the past, but currently, the first two Purge movies are streaming on Peacock. Never say never, but it seems more likely that The Forever Purge will end up Peacock rather than on Netflix.
