The CW Black Lightning Television Series First Look Trailer Is Here

Just released today, the trailer for the upcoming new CW series, Black Lightning.  There hasn’t been a series debut date released yet but it is expected to premiere during the 2017 – 2018 season (The Hollywood Reporter). The series was officially ordered by the CW recently on May 10, 2017 (Deadline).

About Black Lightning: 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. (from bio for YouTube trailer)

The cast for Black Lightning include: Cress Williams as Jefferson Pierce / Black Lightning, Christine Adams as Lynn Pierce, China Anne McClain as Jennifer Pierce, and Nafessa Williams as Anissa Pierce.
