The CW has shared trailers for Black Lightning, whichl will premiere on Tuesday, January 16 at 9/8C. Two other short teaser videos, titled “Veins” and “Motel” were also uploaded earlier this week.
The show synopsis reads: 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.
The series is based on Tony Isabella and Trevor Von Eeden’s DC Comics character.
