The Power Release Date: Who is in the Cast of the Power?

The first trailer for the highly anticipated Prime Video sci-fi movie The Power, starring Toni Collette and John Leguizamo, has finally arrived.

This series, based on Naomi Alderman’s 2016 Baileys Women’s Prize–Winning novel of the same name, was first announced in February 2019.

Collette and Leguizamo aren’t the only big names in the cast, though; Eddie Marsan (The Thief, His Wife, and the Canoe), Toheeb Jimoh (Ted Lasso), and Auli’i Cravalho also make appearances (Moana).

The show premieres on Prime Video four years after it was first announced, in 2019. We will continue to keep this page updated as more information becomes available, but at this time neither the release date nor the release schedule has been officially published.

What is the Power About?

As stated in the official synopsis, “The Power is our world, but for one twist of nature. Teenage ladies suddenly and without warning acquire the ability to electrocute whomever they choose.

As the Power grows from a tingle in teens’ collarbones to a full reversal of the power balance in the world, the series covers a cast of fascinating personalities from London to Seattle, Nigeria to Eastern Europe.

The novel on which the series is based was a smashing success upon its release, being likened to Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale and making Barack Obama’s list of favorite books of the year.

Since Atwood chose Alderman as one of her protégés in 2012, we can only hope that the TV drama based on The Power is as influential and moving as the one based on The Handmaid’s Tale.

Furthermore, Alderman has expressed her excitement about the show’s potential international viewership, noting that she is “thrilled beyond words.”

“I’m overjoyed that The Power will be a topic of discussion pretty much everywhere because it’s a universal tale about the experiences of women and men all over the world. Let me be bold and claim that what we create will be thrilling and revolutionary.”

Who is in the Cast of the Power?

Casting changes have been substantial since the show was first announced, largely as a result of delays and schedule difficulties caused by the Covid-19 outbreak.
