CW just dropped a brand new trailer for their upcoming super hero show Black Lightning.

 

 

Check out the new action packed trailer below.

The new show Black Lightning follows the life of Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams), a retired superhero with electricity powers, father, and principal of a charter high school.

After nine long years of swearing off the super hero life to keep his ex-wife happy, Jefferson suits back up after his daughters Anissa (Nafessa Williams) and Jennifer (China Anne McClaine) and his community are threatened by Tobias Whale’s (played by Marvin “Krondon” Jones III) 100 Gang.

Black Lightning debuts on Tuesday, January 16th @ 9PM ET/PT on the CW, right after The Flash!
