Coming in as a mid-season replacement series, Black Lightning was a shock to the system as it brought something new and real to the line-up of DC Comics shows that The CW currently airs. As the series prepares to dive into the second season, this time starting right alongside the four other CW superhero shows to begin the season, it’s gained an electrifying new poster.
Shared on the series Twitter, the new retro looking poster features title character Jefferson Pierce/Black Lightning (Cress Williams), his daughters Anissa Pierce/Thunder (Nafessa Williams) & Jennifer Pierce (China Anne McClain), his ex-wife Lynn Pierce (Christine Adams) and series villain Tobias Whale (Tobias Whale) front and center. The caption alongside the poster promises “two times the lightning” for the season, which fits with Jennifer discovering her own electrical powers at the end of season one along with the season being likely longer than the first one.
Black Lightning returns to Tuesday nights beginning on October 09.
