New Black Lightning Trailer Debuts

The CW’s roster of DC Comics shows are gearing up to air their midseason finales. At the same time, new shows are getting ready to make their debuts or returns in the new year.


The CW has released a new trailer for the upcoming series Black Lightning, based on the DC Comics character. The trailer highlights the action as well as the drama that fans can expect from the new series when it makes its way to 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 fa ly, but also the soul of his community.
