What will likely unfold in Black Lightning Season 4?


The synopsis is not out yet and due to not much information about it, we can only make conjectures based on the previous seasons. In the last season, the main crew of Black Lightning brought forward the doings of the ASA. Now, people know of their evil experiments and what they wanted to do. So, that was a win for the heroes. A boarding school was established, so we can probably see the working of that in the upcoming season. As far as we know Tobias Whale, he may go further into the criminal underworld and try to retaliate back. Gravedigger is still looming in the world.

Nafessa Williams said, “I want to see some of what’s happening in our world and some of what’s happening today. I hope to see Grace and Anissa marrying and see where that love can go.” Jordan Calloway also expressed, “The change that I would love to see for Khalil is more the psychological recovering.”

The updates on the release date

In May, The CW told us that the release date is finalized in January 2021. Network president Mark Pedowitz stated that all the shows have moved forward in a season. Along with Black Lightning Season 4, in January, we will see The Flash and Batwoman on The CW. If you are Netflix viewers, you can see it eighth days after the finale.
