With DC dominating the TV world on The CW, I wasn’t sure how well last year’s newest addition, Black Lightning, would do. Don’t get me wrong, I was extremely interested, but wasn’t sure if average watchers may have superhero fatigue. Black Lightning ended up being m favorite show of last season on The CW. It blew The Flash out of the water (not that it was difficult last season) and the storytelling reminded me more of Arrow Season 1.
The family themselves are captivating, each having their own traits that make them individuals, yet at the same time, their family dynamics are what make them so likable.

According to That Hashtag Show, new Season 2 characters have been revealed and their descriptions can be found below:
“Perenna”, an open ethnicity role who is somewhere between her 40s-50s. “Perenna” is a therapist who is a metahuman with telepathic powers. Her story revolves heavily around Jennifer Pierce as she will be trying to help the young Pierce daughter to understand her powers better, both physically and emotionally. “Perenna” doesn’t let any feelings or situations scare her off, so expect her to be a power player.”
“Zlovac”, a Caucasian man in his 30s who will be teaming up with the big bad Tobias Whale. Working as a real estate developer, “Zlovac” isn’t afraid to get violent when it comes to payback. “Zlovac” was born somewhere in Eastern Europe and has a lot of experiences in his toolbox as a money launderer as well as being slick within business.”
“Major Lowry”, which is for a male of any ethnicity between the age of 35-50. He is a big deal for one simple reason which is that he is the new principal of Garfield High School! This smart and brave individual isn’t going to have any problem with taking over for Jefferson.”
“Dr. Jace”, who is potentially a version of Helga Race as TV Line predicts. “Dr. Jace” is a 40-something Caucasian woman who is incredibly smart and works as a computational chemist. Our heroes will have to make sure to watch out for this highly manipulative baddie who may or may not be a sociopath. This chemist is possibly focusing more on the ends as opposed to the means.”
“Zoe B” who may or may not get #ThunderGrace fans a little concerned. Open for any ethnicity, this 20-something young woman is social media savvy filled with confidence and edge. But the big deal about her is that she will be a new love-interest for Anissa!”
Hmm, I am definitely intrigued! Maybe we will have more news since the cast is supposed to appear at SDCC. What do you think of the new characters?
