CW Orders BLACK LIGHTNING Full Season, iZOMBIE Renewed

Black Lightning, created by Tony Isabella with Trevor Von Eeden in 1977, is one of DC Comics' first major African-American superheroes. It's been revealed today that Black Lightning has been ordered to series, news which doesn't come as a huge surprise considering the fact the buzz around this one has been pretty positive so far.

In addition to Berlanti, The Game and Being Mary Jane's Mara Brock Akil, as well as her husband Salim Akil will also serve as producers. When the insanely intelligent, just Jennifer is lured in by a local gang, Pierce gives into his temptations, slipping back into the black-and-blue suit to become the on-the-run legend, Black Lightning.

The series was originally slated for Fox with a pilot production commitment.

Black Lightning stars Cress Williams (Hart of Dixie) as the titular character, and it will stand alongside Arrow, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and The Flash, continuing to make The CW the premiere cable network for DC Comic properties. The CW also renewed iZombie and The Originals. "Black Lightning will be that hope", he continued.

Are you excited about Black Lightning coming to The CW?

Lucy Hale stars in Life Sentence, playing a woman diagnosed with terminal cancer... who then learns she's not dying after all, forcing her to live with the choices she made when she chose to "live like she was dying". While I'm all for keeping the movie and TV universes separate (there's a whole argument that they can exist simultaneously thanks to the multiverse), it would be incredible to see those digital series cross over with the CW shows.
