After FOX decided to pass on the Black Lightning series from Greg Berlanti, The CW decided to order a pilot starring Cress Williams in the title role and we now have confirmation that The CW has ordered it to series.
Black Lightning stars Williams as a retired superhero named Jefferson Pierce, who finds himself back in vigilante mode thanks to his justice-seeking daughter and the threat of a star student being recruited by a local gang. The series also stars Nefessa Williams (Code Black), China Anne McClain (Descendants 2), and Christine Adams (Terra Nova).
