In 2013's The Purge, Ethan Hawke played James Sandin, a security salesman that died protecting his family from home invaders during a purge night gone wrong. Of course, with the death of Sandin, one would expect that the character wouldn't make a return to the franchise, but he's actually coming back next week!
We've learned today that Hawke will be reprising the role of Sandin the upcoming second season finale of USA's "The Purge" television series!
The press release explains how his return is possible: "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.
The episode will air Tuesday, December 17th at 9/8C on USA Network.
