Amazon Prime Video has set a premiere date for sci-fi book adaption The Power.
The series mirrors our world, but for one twist of nature. Suddenly, and without warning, teenage girls develop the power to electrocute people at will. It features a cast of remarkable characters from London to Seattle, Nigeria to Eastern Europe, as the Power evolves from a tingle in teenagers’ collarbones to a complete reversal of the power balance of the world.
Check out the teaser trailer below.
Naomi Alderman wrote the novel, with the adaption filming around the world including Vancouver. The global nature of the story led to a range of filming locations across the globe. Some of the locations used during filming include Crystal Palace National Sports Centre in London, and Fairford, Lechdale. The show also filmed in South Africa.
The filming schedule also experienced several delays due to Covid. Originally filming was scheduled from March 2020 to July 2020, the height of Covid. Those delays in turn lead to actors leaving the project and being recast.
The show stars Toni Collette, John Leguizamo, Auli’i Cravalho, Toheeb Jimoh, Josh Charles, Eddie Marsan, Ria Zmitrowicz, Zrinka Cvitešić, Halle Bush.
The Power will premiere on Friday, March 31. New episodes will follow each Friday through the season finale on May 12.
