The CW have ordered Black Lightning to series.
The comic book drama will centre on Jefferson Pierce, who has long given up on his secret identity. However, with a daughter hellbent on justice, Pierce finds himself pulled back as the wanted vigilante Black Lightning.
The series will be producer Greg Berlanti’s fifth on the network after Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl. It is likely that the character will end crossing over into those other shows at some point.
Cress Williams, Nefessa Williams, China Anne McClain and Christine Adams star.
