Black Lightning

CW | 9:00 pm

Another DC Comics character joins the CW series lineup with this premiere, titled "The Resurrection," as Cress Williams ("Hart of Dixie") plays a charter-high-school principal who left his days as a crime-fighting vigilante long in the past. Or so he thought: The activities of a gang prompt him to take up his secret crusade for justice again, to protect both his family and the community at large. The show’s executive producers include "Girlfriends" alums Salim Akil and Mara Brock Akil.
