We had previously seen Black Lightning in various projects by DC, but later, after seeing the popularity and livelihoods of this character, the creators decided to go on a solo trip for him. This is when the first season of Black Lightning comes out on January 16, 2018. Salim Akil plays the creator of the series, which has already come out on The CW. As for the main concept of this superhero drama, we have the titular Black Lightning, which is now retired. He once again enters a life filled with adventure in the form of a superhero. The story follows him throughout all action sequences as we look at the impact he has on his personal and professional life.
Overall, Black Lightning’s third season established itself as the largest to date, with crosses from other DC entities created by The CW, such as Crisis on Infinite Earths and Arrowverse. Then in January 2020, after analyzing that Black Lightning was very popular with the audience, The CW decided to give the green light for the fourth season of Black Lightning. So, to date, we have had 3 complete seasons of Black Lightning, and currently, the fourth one is on the air. Unfortunately, with the announcement of Black Lightning season 4, the creators also revealed how the last season, and the show will end.
Plot of Black Lightning Season 4
The highlight of the entire plot goes to Jefferson Pierce. He is the principal at Garfield High School, which is located in Georgia. It is shown that this character used to be a superhero named Black Lightning nine years ago and fought the crimes that were happening around him but eventually settled down and retired to live with his family. But due to the emergence of The 100, the most dangerous criminal gang led by Tobias Whale, circumstances (his daughter being kidnapped by a gang member) forces our main protagonist to return in a strong form.
Now, passing through the story of this series, we see that Jefferson has retired from his superhero role again. On the other hand, The 100 did not rest because they were in a territorial war with the Cobra Cartel. We also see that Tobias is now starting to work as a philanthropist, even though he used to be a gang leader. So far, Ana Lopez has been appointed as the new National Police Chief. This was because the previous chairman Henderson died, and the mayor of Billy Blank had no choice but to fill this empty spot with someone new and talented.
