Black Lightning centers on Jefferson Pierce. He made his choice - he hung up the suit and his secret identity years ago, but with a daughter hell-bent on justice and a star student being recruited by a local gang, he'll be pulled back into the fight as the wanted vigilante and DC legend Black Lightning.
The CW renewed confirmed that Black Lightning Season 2 is a go a few weeks back, before the first season had even completed its run. The good news came alongside renewals for the CW's entire superhero slate. It's not clear yet when the Black Lightning Season 2 premiere will be, another mid season, or the traditional October premiere similar to the other superhero series.
