Black Lightning is Not Part of The CW's Arrowverse

Black Lightning, whose name is Jefferson Pierce, is a superhero from the DC Universe.

Of course, while the hero is away, the city's villains play, and things grow worse and worse. If the producers decide to bring Black Lightning into the Arrowverse later on, they have already established the multi-verse concept across their existing shows.

Greg Berlanti's upcoming DC series Black Lightning is not set within the The CW's Arrowverse.

While the network is currently aiming for a full, four series crossover event next Fall, it is not now planning a five series melee. But (superhero shows will) last as long as people want to watch it.

Which is encouraging, because the two young women, in the comics, eventually become the heroes known as Thunder and Lightning.

Keep your eyes peeled - as the trailer says, Black Lightning's back!

Unfortunately, during the CW Upfronts, company president Mark Pedowitz told the crowd, "Black Lightning, at this time, is not part of the Arrowverse".

The CW also revealed its 2017-18 schedule today, which moves Arrow to a new day and time, and pairs The Flash and DC's Legends of Tomorrow on the same night. Supergirl also took part in the big 4-show crossover event earlier this season.

Black Lightning will have its premiere during the midseason period this year on The CW. Pierce is hiding a secret: his ability to harness and control electricity, something which he used for years during his time as a vigilante. However, after too many nights with his life on the line, and seeing the effects of the damage and loss that his alter ego was inflicting on his family, he left his Super Hero days behind and settled into being a principal and a dad. But with his crime-fighting days behind him, the 100 gang have risen.

The series hails from Berlanti Productions and Akil Productions in association with Warner Bros.
