The CW is getting a look at the next season of Black Lightning that’s set to arrive with the big extended trailer for it that shows off the new costume. The series is set for an October 7th, 2019 debut on The CW. With the title character also being involved in the Crisis on Infinite Earths storyline this year, there’s a lot to look forward to this season.
The series airs on The CW with streaming the day after through their site and app.
The main cast includes Cress Williams as Jefferson Pierce / Black Lightning, China Anne McClain as Jennifer Pierce / Lightning, Nafessa Williams as Anissa Pierce / Thunder, Christine Adams as Lynn Stewart, Marvin “Krondon” Jones III as Tobias Whale, Damon Gupton as Bill Henderson, Jordan Calloway as Khalil Payne / Painkiller, and James Remar as Peter Gambi.
Season Concept: We find Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) like never before, in the hands of the ASA with his wife Lynn (Christine Adams) as Agent Odell (guest star Bill Duke) tightens his grip on the Pierce family, leaving Jennifer (China Ann McClain) abandoned and Freeland without Black Lightning and Thunder. But Anissa (Nafessa Williams) secretly defies Odell in her alter ego as Blackbird with the able tactical and technical support of Gambi (James Remar).
