Amazon Prime Video has been going the extra mile to deliver several nail-biting series that keep the audience on the edge of their seat. So far, they have hit the bulls-eye with shows like ‘The Wilds’ and ‘Truth Seekers’.
Another such series, The Power, a star-studded dystopian fiction has been generating murmurs and whispers from a global audience. The series is based on Naomi Alderman’s bestselling novel with the same title and was announced back in 2019.
After two long years of waiting, people are excited to watch the series which has boasted of having a thrilling premise. With an interesting story, The Power also has an equally interesting cast.
The Power Release Date
Details about The Power’s release date are still on shaky grounds as Amazon has still not announced more information. But as the production got underway last year, we can hope for the show to be released in 2021.
The Power Cast
An ensemble cast for The Power has been selected and it is beyond incredible. Leslie Mann from ‘This is 40’, Moana’s Auli’i Cravalho, Ana Ularu from ‘Tribes of Europa’, and The Shawshank Redemption’s Tim Robbins are a few of the many talented cast announced by Amazon for the series.
Other members include John Leguizamo from ‘When They See Us’, Toheeb Jimoh from ‘London Kills’, Rob Delaney of ‘Catastrophe’, Jacob Fortune-Lloyd from ‘The Queen’s Gambit’ and Archie Rush from ‘Black Mirror’
Edwina Findley from ‘Fear the Walking Dead’, Alice Eve from ‘Before We Go’ and Zrinka Cvitešić from ‘London Spy’ joined the series too.
The Power Plot
The Power is set in a dystopian future where all teenage girls have developed the ability to electrocute anyone by using their hands. The teenagers find out that this power can be awakened in older women as well. This leads to women becoming powerful and dominating the world by using their power.
When the book was released, it became a hit. It drew a comparison to Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. And now, as the momentum has been created, people cannot wait to watch the 10-episode adaption.
