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.
Jefferson navigates his new reality following the events of the Red Wave, and Lynn's determination to save the meta kids deepens her troubles. Meanwhile, Anissa/Blackbird faces new challenges. Lastly, Jennifer's bond with Brandon begins to grow.
The CW announced today that Black Lightning has been renewed for a fourth season. The superhero drama is currently in the midst of its Season 3 run, scheduled to return from hiatus with new episodes on January 20.
The hour-long series debuted in 2018 as a mid-season replacement. After a strong freshman performance, the network wasted no time in ordering a second season and moving it to its regular lineup for the 2018-2019 season, where it has stayed since.
Black Lightning follows a man who, years ago, was bestowed with superhuman powers that enabled him to harness and control electricity. Long retired from putting his life on the line, a recent rise in crime and corruption in his community bring him back into action for the sake of his family and the soul of his city.
