Cast and characters:
-Cress Williams as Black Lightning: Black Lightning is Black Lightning alter ego. He works with Anissa, Jennifer, and Gambi in order to help clean up the streets of Freeland.

Black Lightning has to make sacrifices throughout Black Lighting Season Five, but he always gets back up and fights for his family.
-Nafessa Williams as Thunder: a daughter who assists Black Lightning in his fight against crime. Thunder’s love interest is Khalil, and they eventually get married, which makes Black Lightning a father-in-law to Khalil.

Black lightning is back to fight crime in the city of Freeland. Black Lightning Season five will be centred around Black Lighting’s relationship with his ex-wife and daughters, as well as how he balances between life as a vigilante and fatherhood.
One thing I don’t like about Black Lightning: One downside to Black lighting isn’t that it is Black Lighting, but he doesn’t have any powers. He is just a man fighting against crime with his own two hands.
What’s new in season five?
Black Lighting will be the first Black Superhero on mainstream television to have a Black teenage sidekick.
