Just in case you didn't know, almost every series on YouTube is now available for free to watch. As a plan to attract increased viewership and ultimately subscribers, the shows that were available only on paid basis are now available to stream for free.
One of those shows is the science fiction drama, Impulse. While you can now watch the entire first season of the show for free with ads, Youtube dropped the trailer for a second season that is all set to premiere on 16th October 2019.
In Impulse, Maddie Hasson stars as Henrietta “Henry” Coles, a rebellious 17-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.
In the season 2 trailer (watch above or at this link), Henry struggles to understand her extraordinary ability to teleport. Nikolai (Callum Keith Rennie) makes an effort to control Henry and her power. But is he here to help or hurt Henry — and are those close to her in danger?
According to Variety, as of Sept. 24, YouTube is making all-new original series and specials available for free with ads. Previously, those were exclusively available via YouTube Premium. Hit YouTube original “Cobra Kai,” based on the “Karate Kid” movie franchise, became available to watch for free to the service’s global audience Aug. 29, followed by season 2 on Sept. 11.
Going forward, YouTube Premium will continue to offer ad-free access to all YouTube originals with all episodes available to them at once to binge (on the free side, episodes will be released weekly). In addition, YouTube Premium subscribers will have exclusive access to the director’s cuts and bonus content of originals.
