With Black Lightning returning to the CW next month after a first season that was highly praised by fans and critics alike, the stakes are much higher heading into season 2 – not just for the series, but for the Pierce family. Jefferson Pierce aka Black Lightning (Cress Williams) and Anissa Pierce aka Thunder (Nafessa Williams) are back keeping the streets of Freeland safe. But with Green Light out in the community and Tobias Whale (Marvin “Krondon” Jones III) back and more dangerous than ever, the Pierces are going to need a little “family-friendly” help – but will Jennifer (China Anne McClain) be able to harness her full potential in time?
With that level of intensity heading into the show’s October 9th season premiere, CW is stoking the flames with three new teasers. In the first two, Jones explains why the Pierce/Tobias dynamic is key to the series and has a serious amount of future potential – especially with that glowing thing in Whale’s briefcase looking to play a major role very soon:
In the third teaser, Christine Adams (Lynn Stewart) discusses the fans’ favorite Lynn moment – and the scene that stands out to her:
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.
