Next month ‘Black Lightning’ returns for a third season and he won’t be fighting crime alone when he eventually gets out of prison! The premiere episode is titled “The Book of Occupation: Chapter One – Birth of Blackbird” and confirms that Jefferson Pierce’s oldest daughter Anissa is going to be suiting up to help save her city. It isn’t clear how long Anissa will be keeping the peace without her father at her side, or if she’ll have his approval to continue when he is eventually freed.
Either way, this will add a new aspect to the fighting and drama on the series as it continues on.
The synopsis of the first episode of ‘Black Lightning’ Season 3 shares:
SEASON PREMIERE – We find Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) like never before, in the hands of the ASA with his wife Lynn (Christine Adams) as Agent Odell (guest star Bill Duke) tightens his grip on the Pierce family, leaving Jennifer (China Ann McClain) abandoned and Freeland without Black Lightning and Thunder. But Anissa (Nafessa Williams) secretly defies Odell in her alter ego as Blackbird with the able tactical and technical support of Gambi (James Remar). Marvin Jones III and Damon Gupton also star.
Freeland may very well be under Martial Law when the upcoming season kicks off which should make it even more difficult for the Pierce family to do what’s right.
The CW also released a new promo poster for the series which you can check out right here!
