Black Lightning

We recently were given a synopsis for the premiere episode of the third season of ‘Black Lightning,’ and now The CW has released an extended trailer for the series! Jefferson Pierce and his entirely is going to have a rough time ahead of him when the show returns thanks to Agent Odell. However, not everything is bad news as we get a great tease of Black Lightning’s new suit right at a minute and seventeen seconds into the new preview.

Here’s the synopsis for the first episode:

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.

I love that the first episode “The Book of Occupation: Chapter One – Birth of Blackbird” is already set to have Blackbird running around, I just wish we got to see more of her being a hero before the October 7th premiere!

While we’ll see the Pierces not in the best of situations when the upcoming season kicks off, hopefully by the finale, we’ll see that the family that fights crime together stays together. Only time will tell!
