Black Lightning: Overview


There is no denying that the storytelling in this series is one of the main highlights of fans, as well as one of the many reasons why they keep tuning in to enjoy this CW’s series, and sadly,

we might never find out what is going to happen with Black Lightning season 5. With Netflix having shared rights of the show too, the odds are extremely slim that Black Lightning would get renewed from OTT giant.

But without the perfect story, fans are not going to be turning to the screens to watch Black Lightning season 5, since the show has seen its viewership numbers drop.

When is Black Lightning Season 5 releasing online?

The news might frustrate fans, because another superhero TV show is not going to have season 5, and Season 4 is its last. But if it comes, then we are expecting season 5 of Black lightning to release somewhere in 2023.

It is reasonable to expect that season five will not be available until either 2022 or 2023, considering that it has not begun production.
