Impulse is a YouTube Originals series. It is connected to 2008's Jumper film and is loosely based on the novel of the same name. The series premiered on June 6, 2018.

Its second season premiered on October 16, 2019.

The show's cancellation was first mentioned in a Variety article and later confirmed by Maddie Hasson on Instagra, greatly disappointing fans who are begging for more.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Based on the third novel in the Jumper series by Steven Gould, Impulse follows "16-year-old Henrietta, aka Henry, who discovers she has the ability to teleport. The first time she realizes this, she is in a truck with her high school’s Golden Boy, who tries to rape her.

She has a seizure, telekinetically crushes Clay's truck and teleports, 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 with her feelings about the assault.
