When is Black Lightning season 4 out on Netflix? Let’s get the show’s streaming release explained and consider when it will reach audiences.
Black Lightning is back and fans are preparing for a very impactful new season.
Developed by Salim Akil, this American superhero series is based on the character of the same name, which was created by Tony Isabella and Trevor Von Eeden, appearing in DC Comics.
Cress Williams returns in the titular role alongside a wealth of familiar faces, after tackling the part from the series’ premiere back in January 2018.
The latest season began premiering on The CW on Monday, February 8th 2021, but when is Black Lightning season 4 out on Netflix?
When is Black Lightning season 4 out on Netflix?
- There is no Netflix release date for Black Lightning season 4 just yet. However, the streaming release of the previous season suggests we may expect it in late May or early June 2021.
While the Radio Times highlights that the earlier seasons dropped episodes on the platform weekly, the entirety of season 3 was added once all episodes had concluded airing on The CW.
It’s likely that season 4 will follow this method too.
The last two seasons were both made up of 16 episodes each. So, if this is the case with season 4, then it will finish airing – if there are no further delays – in late May.
Taking this into account, perhaps Netflix subscribers will be invited to tuck into all episodes of season 4 around this time.
Black Lightning final season
That’s right. It all ends with season 4… well, sort of.
This news was confirmed by Deadline back in November 2020, with the showrunner – Salim Akil – reflecting on the series history: “When we first started the Black Lighting journey, I knew that Jefferson Pierce and his family of powerful Black women would be a unique addition to the superhero genre…”
Salim went on to thanks the creative team aboard the project:
“Thank you to the phenomenal cast, writers and crew without whom none of this would’ve been possible. I’m incredibly proud of the work we’ve been able to do and the moments we’ve been able to create in bringing DC’s first African-American family of super heroes to life for the culture.”
He added: “I’m very grateful to Peter Roth, Warner Bros. TV, Mark Pedowitz, The CW Network and Greg Berlanti for their partnership and support of my vision at every step of this journey. While Season Four may be the end of one journey, I’m extremely excited to usher in a new chapter and continued collaboration with The CW as we tell the story of Painkiller.”
Painkiller will serve as a Black Lightning spin-off.
