The first season of the show premiered back in January 2018. A second season was soon released later in October of the same year. The action series is based on the DC Comics character Black Lightning. Cress Williams brilliantly plays the titular role of Black Lighting.

Black Lightning Season 3: Is It The Last Season?
Black Lightning’s first season was successful and gathered a large number of viewers that watched it till the end. However, the ratings and viewership substantially decreased by the second season. Moreover, half of the episodes couldn’t even cross the 1 million viewership mark. This threatens the future of the show as fans wonder if Season 3 will be the last season.
Moreover, many of The CW superhero shows have been slashed recently. This includes the popular series Arrow, which was canceled after its eighth season. Hence, Black Lightning is also under threats of cancellation. However, all of this depends upon how Black Lightning Season 3 turns out to be.
What Fans Will See In The Upcoming Season?
The second season of the show recently concluded, and it was full of emotional moments. Season 2 centers around the Green Light Babies. These children develop superpowers after being exposed to a street-drug called Green Light. The children met their fate by the end of the season.
Agent Odell (Bill Duke), now knows all the secrets of the Pierce family. Moreover, the previous season ended with him dropping a bomb on them. Freeland now awaits a war, and the new installment is going to be full of action. Agent Odell may have a more significant role in the next season.
Markovia may try to invade Freeland in Black Lightning Season 3. Moreover, Agent Odell will be on the front lines of everything that’ll happen in the upcoming installment. He is also likely to keep a close eye on Lynn Stewart (Christine Adams) and her experiments. Moreover, he may even send metahumans from their pods to train. Season 3 is not going to be simple this time as hundreds of twists and turns are ready to emerge for the Pierce family.
