The CW has unveiled a first look at BLACK LIGHTNING’S Thunder.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Executive Producer Salim Akil notes Jefferson Pierce (aka Black Lightning, played by Cress Williams ) will not be thrilled to learn his daughter is a metahuman. The hero will reportedly be fearful of what having metahuman powers means for his daughters but will eventually learn to let them grow.

Black Ligthning premieres Tuesday, January 16 at 9 PM on the CW.
