Black Lightning Ordered To Series

Here’s some television news, it was announced that Black Lightning has been ordered to series by the CW. I have to say I was a bit worried that they wouldn’t be picked up given the fact that DC is coming out with its own streaming series. So I originally thought it would be air on that series with Young Justice and Titans. Anyway, here’s what we know about the upcoming series starring Black Lightning.

“Black Lightning” follows Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams), a former vigilante who hung up his suit years ago and now works as a teacher. But with a daughter hell-bent on justice and a star student being recruited by a local gang, he will be pulled back into the fight as the legendary Black Lightning. The series is based on the DC character created by Tony Isabella with Trevor Von Eeden.”

I’m hopeful that this series will be successful on the CW Network. Given how Supergirl season two performed strongly when it changed networks. I can only imaging how well a series starring Black Lightning and his cast of characters will do. Here’s hoping this series could be similar to Luke Cage. In the sense of it being a older black hero, trying to make his community better.

As always, leave your thoughts down below Herotaku Nation. Are you excited to see Black Lightning come to life? Until the next news story, I’m XBen3000 and I’m out!
