UMMMM. YES. Here for this!
With television Upfronts having happened/still happening in New York City, the TV announcement news is never-ending. From World of Wonder’s show Real Estate Wars getting a premiere date to news about all the cancellations and renewals, there’s so much news TV fans can geek out over.
In the case of The CW‘s new show Black Lightning, we’re literally about to geek out over it! The DC property is getting a series order from the network that is killing it with the superhero shows and we couldn’t be more excited about it. Though, it should be noted that this show will NOT be part of the Arrowverse.
Instead of going into a big long ramble about it, I’ll leave the description to The CW.
Per The CW:
“Jefferson Pierce is a man wrestling with a secret. Nine years ago, Pierce was gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, which he used to keep his hometown streets safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning. However, after too many nights with his life and his family on the line, he left his Super Hero days behind. Almost a decade later, Pierce’s crime-fighting days are long behind him…or so he thought. But with crime and corruption spreading like wildfire, Black Lightning returns — to save not only his family, but also the soul of his community.”
