Impulse is an American science fiction drama web television series, based on the novel Impulse by Steven Gould, that premiered on June 6, 2018, on YouTube Premium. The series is executive produced by Lauren LeFranc, Doug Liman, David Bartis, and Gene Klein. LeFranc also acts as showrunner for the series. In July 2018, it was announced that the series had been renewed for a second season consisting of ten episodes to premiere in the second half of 2019. Impulse follows 16-year-old Henrietta Coles who discovers she has the ability to mentally move objects as well as teleport but has no control over her destination. The first time she realizes this, she is in a truck with her high school's basketball captain and star, Clay Boone, who tries to rape her. She has a seizure and teleports, in the course of which she inadvertently crushes him with her inherent telekinesis and teleports for the first time, leaving him a paraplegic. The show goes on to explore Henry's need to reconcile what her assaulter tried to do with the consequence, and her feelings about discovering she can teleport and psionically move objects from a distance, which are triggered by her feelings of fear regarding the assault.
