The CW announced today that Black Lightning has been renewed for a second season. The superhero drama premiered early this year as a mid-season replacement and has been having a solid freshman run to this point.

Currently 10 episodes into its 13-episode season, the show has been garnering praise from both audiences and critics for its strong performances and engaging storytelling that brings a unique style to the superhero genre.

Black Lightning follows a man who, years ago, was bestowed with superhuman powers that enabled him to harness and control electricity. Long retired from putting his life on the line, a recent rise in crime and corruption in his community bring him back into action for the sake of his family and the soul of his city.

No details on Season 2 have been released as of yet. An episode count is still unknown, as is whether the show will stay as a mid-season entry or be moved into the regular season for 2018-2019.
