The Cleansed: Season 1, Chapter 1

Artwork for The Cleansed penned by Simon Adams

Our sprawling, epic post-apocalyptic series is here!  Be sure to catch up what happened 15 years prior to the start of Season 1 in our Prologue Episode.

Fifteen years have passed since the “Battle of Bangor,” the brutal assault on a small Maine city that set off the shattering of Northern New England during The Breaking. Since then, David and Sam have lead a ragged group of refugees and set up home at an abandoned airforce based dubbed “The Refuge.” And far south, John Prophet has continued his battle for freedom.

But John Prophet’s luck has about run out. Even as he attempts one more daring action, enemy soldiers crowd down around him. He is forced to make a difficult decision in a train station. And then, he sets his feet northward, and comes crashing in like a lightning storm to the bucolic life David and Sam have forged in The Refuge.

Maria and Luke have grown up knowing only the austerity of The Refuge. What will they make of this mysterious stranger and the storm of danger that surrounds him?
