If you can believe it, we’re almost to the end of this half-season of television, and very soon, we’ll be seeing a whole new batch of shows premiere. One such show is Black Lightning, something that’s been in the works from Greg Berlanti and co. for some time now.

A new promo for the series has surfaced on the web, and in it, we see a brand new logo. Check out the promo and new logo below:

Black Lightning is a series that was initially intended to go to FOX, but after getting rejected there, Greg Berlanti took the show to longtime collaborator The CW, which is home to all his other DC Comics shows, including Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl.

Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) is a man wrestling with a secret. As the father of two daughters and principal of a charter high school that also serves as a safe haven for young people in a New Orleans neighborhood overrun by gang violence, he is a hero to his community. Nine years ago, Pierce was a hero of a different sort. Gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, he used those powers to keep his hometown streets safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning. However, after too many nights with his life on the line, and seeing the effects of the damage and loss that his alter ego was inflicting on his family, he left his Super Hero days behind and settled into being a principal and a dad.

Choosing to help his city without using his superpowers, he watched his daughters Anissa (Nafessa Williams) and Jennifer (China Anne McClain) grow into strong young women, even though his marriage to their mother, Lynn (Christine Adams), suffered. Almost a decade later, Pierce’s crime-fighting days are long behind him…or so he thought. But with crime and corruption spreading like wildfire, and those he cares about in the crosshairs of the menacing local gang The One Hundred, Black Lightning returns — to save not only his family, but also the soul of his community.

Black Lightning hits The CW on Tuesday, January 16 at 9/8c.
