Since its debut in 2018, Black Lightning has changed the game for families all over the world. With its socially relevant and familial tone, the superhero genre will never be the same. Recently, the CW show did cross-over episodes with Arrow, and after that, who knows where the Pierce family is going next?

Just like any other show, creators and actors work real hard to conceal as much information about the show as possible. Of course, that happening is pretty far from happening which is why we’re here to tell you everything you need to know about Black Lightning Season 4.

Plot of Black Lightning Season 4

Black Lightning Season 3 ended with Jennifer, Jefferson and Anissa exposing the ASA including how they were trying to create super soldiers by experimenting on helpless children. As expected, ASA disbanded because of this and Congress also gave funding for a special boarding school to those metahuman kids. The special boarding school is run by Lynn Stewart and Jefferson.
