Shocking! Black Lightning in the News

I don't know if a number had been reported elsewhere before (maybe I missed it), but Deadline mentions that Black Lightning has 16 episodes for Season 2:

Quote

Because the CW has been growing its slate of original series over the past few years, the network has been playing with size of the orders. Half of its fall shows will not produce traditional 22-episode seasons. The list includes Legends of Tomorrow and Black Lightning, both doing 16 episodes. The CW will need the room as it has five series on deck for midseason.

Yay! Lightning looks great. They gave a her a cute mask! I'm assuming the thing on her back is a battery pack because her suit lights up. No stealth for the Pierces!

She is a living battery, does she need a battery pack? lol.

But I LOVE the costume, especially the mask, it looks good and is one of my faves of the CW-super shows. I really wish whoever does their costumes would start doing the Arrowverse costumes.

Things haven't changed at Black Lightning (yet?), but Akil's other show is cancelled.

Television, which produces “Love Is ___,” has completed an inquiry triggered by the lawsuit and found no allegations of misconduct on the OWN series or “Black Lightning,” the CW superhero drama that Salim Akil also exec produces.

Nafessa Williams interview with a few teases for the rest of Season 2: https://www.newsarama.com/43366-black-lightning-nafessa-williams-thunder-cw-dc-cw-crisis-on-infinite-earths.html

Quote

Newsarama: Nafessa, what can you tease us about the next half of Black Lightning’s season?

Nafessa Williams: I’ll say my character is going through a lot personally, a lot is changing with her and Grace. So without giving too much we build on the storyline with Grace a bit, and we will discover some really cool things about her.
