YouTube has announced that Impulse will be returning for a second season. The freshman drama premiered on the streamer's subscription service, YouTube Premium, last month with a 10-episode release.

The series appears to be another solid addition to YouTube's growing slate of originals. Reviews from critics have been mostly positive, and its free-to-view pilot episode has been watched eight million times so far.

Impulse follows the life of Henry Coles, a 16-year-old girl who is somewhat of an outsider in her new town of Reston, New York. But her days of being isolated and withdrawn don't last long, as a traumatic encounter with a classmate changes everything by triggering a power from deep within her - one that she cannot control.

Another 10 episodes have been ordered for Season 2 of Impulse, which will return in 2019.
