In two weeks, Prime Video will send sparks flying as its new series “The Power” makes its three-episode debut on the streamer. Based on Naomi Alderman’s award-winning novel, the show focuses on a group of teenage girls who suddenly gain the power of electrocution. Ahead of the premiere on March 31, Prime Video has shared a new sneak peek at the series. Similar to Alderman’s novel, “The Power” will focus on women in power not just through their literal, newfound electrocution skills, but also through a broader feminist lens. As showcased through the opening sequence and earlier trailers, the series gives its characters the means to find their inner power, giving them the opportunity to wreak havoc on a world stacked against them and to realize they are more than what they initially believe about themselves — whether they feel unseen, lonely, weak, or more. “The Power” premieres with its first three episodes Friday, March 31 on Prime Video. New episodes will release weekly each Friday leading up to the season finale on May 12. Watch the opening sequence below:

Naomi Alderman’s 2016 dystopian thriller The Power was an instant classic of speculative fiction – the kind of thought experiment that destabilizes our sense of what’s possible. What would happen if teenage girls had the ability to electrocute at their fingertips? What would the world be like if women didn’t fear men anymore? How would women wield their new strength, and how would men push back? The novel imagines a cascade of aftershocks as the balance of gender power shifts. Toni Collette hadn’t read The Power when she agreed to star in the Amazon Prime Video series adaptation, premiering this March, playing fictional Seattle mayor Margot Cleary-Lopez. “I often don’t read the source material – I like to focus on the scripts that I’m given, because that’s what’s chosen to be focused on,” Collette tells Vanity Fair by phone from Sydney. But she also points out that the role came to her very abruptly. The series began shooting in early 2020, with Leslie Mann in the role of Margot, but the pandemic shut down production. Last year, Collette was brought in to replace Mann, and all her previously filmed scenes had to be re-done. Vanity Fair has posted a lenghty accompanying article for the teaser trailer, including an interview with Toni. Screencaptures from the trailer have been added to the photo gallery.

Today, Prime Video debuted first-look images for the highly anticipated series The Power. The emotionally driven, global thriller from SISTER (Chernobyl) is based on British author Naomi Alderman’s award-winning novel, and will premiere exclusively on Prime Video in March.

The Power is our world, but for one twist of nature. Suddenly, and without warning, teenage girls develop the power to electrocute people at will. The series 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.

Toni Collette stars as Mayor Margot Cleary-Lopez, alongside John Leguizamo as Rob Lopez, Auli’i Cravalho as Jos Cleary-Lopez, Toheeb Jimoh as Tunde Ojo, Josh Charles as Daniel Dandon, Eddie Marsan as Bernie Monke, Ria Zmitrowicz as Roxy Monke, Zrinka Cvitešić as Tatiana Moskalev, Halle Bush as Allie Montgomery, and more.

Toni Collette has been tapped as a lead in “The Power”, Prime Video’s 10-episode global thriller drama based on Naomi Alderman’s feminist sci-fi book, while The Good Wife alum Josh Charles is set for a key recurring role in the series from Jane Featherstone’s Sister and director Reed Morano. They replace Leslie Mann and Tim Robbins, respectively, who both exited the series in May. According to Deadline, the world of “The Power” is our world, but for one twist of nature. Suddenly, and without warning, all teenage girls in the world develop the power to electrocute people at will. Collette’s Margot, the mayor of Seattle, is an authentic and genuinely progressive politician fighting hard for change. She has a sharp tongue, a wicked sense of humor and a passion to leave the world better than she found it. She is also a devoted mother to three children, including Jos (Auli’I Cravalho), and wife to her husband of 20 years Rob (John Leguizamo). When the Power emerges, Margot is catapulted into the spotlight, opening the door to unimaginable possibilities – both personal and political. Charles’ Dandon, the governor of Washington, is the consummate politician. A liberal and a Democrat, Dandon is a skilled political animal, an experienced schmoozer who is great at playing the game — and poised to be the state’s next senator. That is, until the emergence of the Power. The duo joins remaining cast members Cravalho, Leguizamo, Eddie Marsan, Ria Zmitrowicz, Toheeb Jimoh, Zrinka Cvitesic, Ana Ularu and Edwina Findlay.
