While Black Lightning will soon arrive on the CW, discover why this brand new show should break all the codes of Arrow and The Flash!
And of 5! And yes the meltynautes, after Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl, the CW continues its momentum and will offer us a fifth series carried by a superhero as of next coming. Titled Black Lightning, the series will follow the adventures of Jefferson Pierce, a retired hero. Determined to hang up his suit to take care of his little family, Jefferson will be forced to resume service when his city is eaten away by crimes and the reign of a mafia gang. A pitch that gives water to the mouth! However, this series will be orchestrated in parallel of the four other shows that are currently the good days of the American network .

A series that will be completely apart from the Arrowverse
Until now, all the DC Comics series have been conducted together allowing us to taste every year an extremely anticipated crossover event by fans. Yet, this time, Mark Pedowitz pointed out that Black Lightning was not intended to be part of the Arrowverse. Here is an amazing new and which offers an important particularity to the show. If this decision will allow viewers not to get lost among all the plots, it is also a risk for the channel. Indeed, the intervention of Green Arrow or even Supergirl could have greatly boosted the audiences of its new production. Let’s therefore bet that Black Lightning will be very different from what we are used to discover on the CW!
A hero in his forties
For the first time on the American network, he is a much older superhero than we will have the pleasure of getting to know. Much more experienced and responsible than his predecessors, Black Lightning will be a much more rational character. No question of concentrating on his love life since Jefferson Pierce is already married and father of family . What to focus intrigues on his fight against the bad guys and how to manage his return to the arena and his family ties. A novelty that should attract many viewers a little disappointed to see that other heroes define themselves regularly by their love stories.
A much darker series
Where The Flash, Supergirl or even Legends of Tomorrow have a luminous and sometimes even crazy atmosphere, Black Lightning will move closer to Arrow but will take a darker turn. Centered on a gang of criminals with violent acts, the series will not have the same way to approach the work of justiciary. Father of family, the stakes will be much greater for Jefferson Pierce which could put his children in danger . But rest assured, humor will always be at the rendezvous as we were able to discover in the trailer. One thing is certain, we are eager to taste this new gem.
