Will there be a Season 2 of 'The Power'?

As of this writing, Prime Video has yet to renew The Power for Season 2. However, the streaming platform doesn't usually renew new series ahead of the first season, except for rare circumstances. So, fans of The Power shouldn't see this as the end of the story just yet.

We've got even more good news for fans of The Power — series star Toni Collette told Digital Spy that she'd absolutely be game to return. She said, "I was saying to John [Leguizamo] earlier, we were talking about this today — it's like a mountain and we're skimming the top of it. It's a big subject. So I think there are so many ways of exploring it. And you know, there are six different storylines at the moment within the show."
