The cast of YouTube’s “Impulse” just found out that the sci-fi drama has been officially renewed for a second season, and they’re already starting to ponder what’s in store for their characters — particularly for Maddie Hasson’s Henry and her newfound ability to teleport.

“I want to see what happens when Henry’s power develops because we sort of see it — especially in episode 10 — develop in a big way and grow in a big way,” Hasson said at Variety‘s San Diego Comic-Con Studio Thursday. “I want to see how she handles that because I’ve always expected her to handle it really badly and not be a superhero at all, and that would be fun for me to play.”

Executive producer Lauren LeFranc has yet to finalize or share any script drafts — even with the cast — but she did confirm that Henry’s supernatural ability will take center stage in the show’s sophomore season.

“We have 10 episodes, which was awesome, but it is hard to really go there, so I’m excited to have 10 more episodes to tell more of those stories,” LeFranc said. “I think teleportation is going to play a more complicated, bigger role in the mythology.”

Enuka Okuma, who plays Deputy Anna Hulce, is excited to delve deeper into Anna’s mysterious past and her overall purpose in the series’ small town.

“We just teased a little bit of Anna’s backstory in Season 1, so it’s a bit of a mystery why she’s in Reston and what happened back there in New York that sent her over to this small town where these lovely ladies live,” Okuma said, referring to castmates Hasson and Sarah Desjardins. “I’m curious to find out about her family. These characters are all complex — we’re not all good; we’re not all bad. So what are those colors within Anna’s life? I’m so curious.”
