Black Lightning will be coming to The CW next year as Jefferson Pierce joins the network as the latest superhero for Warner Bros. TV. Black Lightning had a big presence at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con where cast and producers revealed what we can expect in the first season of the series. Black Lightning Podcast/DC TV Podcasts participated in the press room for Black Lightning this year where Chris Barnes (of The Flash Podcast) chatted with the cast at the round tables to get some new details about Season 1.
One of the cast members who attended was China Anne McClain, who will be playing one of Jefferson Pierce’s daughters, Jennifer who in the comics becomes the superhero Lightning. Throughout the round table interview, McClain teased several things that we can expect in Season 1 such as:
-How much of the series will be a family drama and how much it will be a superhero series
-McClain on how much we will see of Jennifer’s regular life before she gets her powers
-Whether or not she did comic book research and if she has seen any of the Arrowverse shows
-What has been the one favorite moment she has had with the project so far
-How she feels about becoming a role model for young girls out there that will follow Jennifer through the series
Black Lightning Season 1 premieres in mid-season 2018 on The CW!
