Season 4 of, "Black Lightning," Will Be the Last
a, "Painkiller," spin-off of, "Black Lighting," and get bad news the next day. "Black Lightning," will be ending after its upcoming fourth season. This was, as readers know, the only CW super-hero show I watched as it was so tonally different than the others and amazingly well done. It had an older hero, a Black lead (and diverse support cast) and tackled issues such as police brutality, income inequality, and was just a damn fine show. Now, don't get me wrong, I am happy the show is getting this last season to set-up the, "Painkiller," spin-off and wrap everything up nicely as opposed to suddenly getting axed, but I'm still a bit bummed.
