Black Lightning TV show on The CW: canceled or renewed for season 5?

(The CW)

Will the Pierce family all survive until the end of the fourth season of the Black Lightning TV show on The CW? As we all know, the Nielsen ratings typically play a big role in determining whether a TV show like Black Lightning is cancelled or renewed for season five (in this case, we know it’s ending). Unfortunately, most of us do not live in Nielsen households. Because many viewers feel frustration when their viewing habits and opinions aren’t considered, we invite you to rate all of the fourth season episodes of Black Lightning here.

A CW action superhero series, the Black Lightning TV show is based on DC Comics characters and stars Cress Williams, China Anne McClain, Nafessa Williams, Marvin “Krondon” Jones III, Christine Adams, Jordan Calloway, James Remar, and Chantal Thuy. In the series, Jefferson Pierce (Williams) is a former Olympic athlete, a respected educator, and a family man. He’s also Black Lightning, the superpowered protector of the city of Freeland who has the ability to sense and harness electricity. His daughters Anissa (Williams) and Jennifer (McClain) also have powers and superhero personas of their own. Lynn Stewart (Adams) is Jefferson’s ex-wife and an expert in metahuman medicine and they are still very much in love. Together, the Pierce family faces the challenges of a declined urban community, including infamous gangster, Tobias Whale (Jones III), and a menacing gang that calls itself The 100. Fortunately, the family has allies in their fight, Jefferson’s surrogate father and a former covert superspy, Peter Gambi (Remar).
