YouTube Orders Season Two of Drama ‘Impulse’

Ten New One-Hour Episodes Ordered

YouTube has greenlit a second season of supernatural thriller “Impulse,” with an order for 10 new one-hour episodes set to premiere on YouTube Premium in 2019.

In Season One of “Impulse,” Maddie Hasson stars as Henrietta “Henry” Cole, a rebellious 16-year-old girl who has always felt different from her peers and longs to escape from her seemingly quaint small town. During a traumatic event, Henry discovers she has the extraordinary ability to teleport, and her newfound power confirms Henry’s conviction that she really was different from everybody else — but it now makes her the focus of those who want to control her.
Returning for a second season to the Toronto-based production are Maddie Hasson, Missi Pyle ​(“Gone Girl”) as “Cleo,” Sarah Desjardins (Van​ Helsing, Wayward Pines​) as “Jenna,” Enuka Okuma (​How to Get Away with Murder, Rookie Blue, Slasher​) as “Deputy Anna,” and Craig Arnold (Degrassi:​ The Next Generation, Heartland​) as “Lucas.” 
“Impulse” is directed and executive produced by Hypnotic’s Doug Liman (“Bourne​ Identity”). David Bartis and Gene Klein, who produce “Suits” on USA Network and SYFY’s “Nightflyers,” also serve as Executive Producers. Lauren LeFranc (​”Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D​”) is the series’ ​Showrunner and Executive Producer.
