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 Jefferson Pierce himself, Cress Williams, who is bringing the iconic hero to life for the first time. Throughout the round table interview, Williams teased several things that we can expect in Season 1 such as:
-How many scripts he has read so far for the first season
-Williams on the big honor of getting to play the first leading black superhero on broadcast television
-How Jefferson will most likely react when he discovers that his daughters have powers like him
-What Jefferson’s respective relationship with Anissa and Jennifer are like
-Whether or not the series will have a humorous tone
-How the show is going to be socially conscious with the modern time
Black Lightning Season 1 premieres in mid-season 2018 on The CW!
