The second season of "The Purge" will be arriving on USA later this year, and Deadline reports the latest casting news today. Rochelle Aytes, who played the werewolf Maria in Michael Dougherty’s Trick ‘r Treat, has joined on for a recurring role in the new season.
Danika Yarosh ("Greenhouse Academy") is also set to recur in Season 2.
Aytes will play Michelle Moore, a woman who must rebuild her world after her peaceful existence is shattered when an assassin breaks into her and her husband Marcus’ (Luke) home on Purge night. Yarosh is set as Kelen Stewart, a college student who tries to help her boyfriend Ben (Joel Allen) process the horrors he witnessed on Purge night.
Season 2 explores how a single Purge night affects the lives of four interconnected characters over the course of the ensuing year, all inevitably leading up to the next Purge. The second season of the anthology series opens on Purge night but dives deeper than ever before in to what the Purge world looks like the other 364 days of the year.
Derek Luke ("13 Reasons Why"), Max Martini (Pacific Rim), Paola Nuñez (The Son) and Joel Allen (Never Goin’ Back) have been set as series regulars for Season 2.
