The story follows Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams), a teacher who hung up his suit and secret identity years ago. Now, with one daughter hell-bent on justice and another a star student being recruited by a local gang, he will be pulled back into the fight as the wanted vigilante Black Lightning.

Greg Berlanti, Salim Akil, Mara Brock Akil, and Sarah Schechter executive produce the series.
