Black Lightning Season 5 : All You Need To Know
Season 4 of Black Lightning premiered on February 8, 2021, on ‘The CW’, and concluded on May 24, 2021. Fourth Season of this series has 13 episodes, each has a run time of 42 to 45 minutes and now fans are eagerly waiting for Black Lightning Season 5. But this time fans will be disappointed as it is possible that there will be no more seasons of ‘Black Lightning’. It has been hinted by Christine Adams on her official Instagram page, where he shared a picture with his crew and captioned it as
“4 years ago Black Lightning made history. The first all black superhero family on television. At its core Black Lightning was a family show. But more than that it was a mirror to the black experience in America. We touched the lives of so many people who for the first time saw people who looked like them. Were them. Their struggles and triumphs were reflected back to them in a way that was unique to our show. I am forever indebetd to @monsieurdirector for trusting me with Dr Lynn Stewart and deeply proud to have been part of something so truly meaningful. Thank you to our outstanding cast and crew who put their heart and soul into every corner of Black Lightning. I think endings are also beginnings.”
We understand that this post must be making you sad, but it is hinting towards the end of Black Lightning with four seasons. But we hope that our assumptions are false and fans could be provided with Season 5 of Black Lightning.
