According to Mashable's Alison Foreman, you don't have to watch the series to be afraid. The clips are scary enough.

I haven't been this scared of my phone since Drew Barrymore picked up the line in Scream.
Last night's premiere episode of American Horror Story: Apocalypse depicted the end of days in a pretty standard fashion—lots of screaming, running, crying, etc. But one cellular detail brought the campy series' take on the world's end to a very real and very 2018 place.
In the season's opening scene, three main characters are casually discussing pressed juice and Instagram fame when a loud blaring noise fills the room. Instantly, they reach for their phones.
An emergency push notification heralds doomsday for the characters and audience. It reads: "Ballistic missile threat inbound to Los Angeles. Seek immediate shelter. This is not a drill."

According to Bustle, "The Purge" did not tone down for TV. The series is just as terrifying as the films.

But, don't think for a moment that it will get boring because of cable TV. Per USA Network, the cast chatted about the show during a Comic-Con panel and hinted at scary concepts like "The Gauntlet," which was described by Chavarria as "American Ninja Warrior of Dead." And, showrunner Tom Kelly confirmed that nothing would be toned down for TV. He promised "spills and chills" for this season, which means there is some blood and intense moments ahead. So, this series may not necessarily be for the faint of heart.
The Purge is far from a comedy show, but it is not supposed to cause nightmares either. People will have to choose if they want to participate in the show or run and hide from its frighteningly possible premise.
