Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will be releasing Black Lightning: The Complete First Season on Blu-ray and DVD on June 26, 2018. The CW superhero show has already been renewed for a second season.
Black Lightning is the latest offering from Warner Bros. Television, DC Entertainment and Berlanti Productions (the producers behind the successful series The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow) along with Akil Productions. The show premiered on The CW on January 16, 2018, for a 13-episode run. The season finale will air on April 17, 2018.
Black Lightning delivered the network’s most-watched series premiere in the past two years. It’s also The CW’s highest-rated show behind The Flash. So, it’s no surprise we’ll be getting a second season. However, before we are able to enjoy the series’ sophomore outing, you can binge-watch all 13-episodes by owning Black Lightning: The Complete First Season on June 26, 2018. The Blu-ray has a $39.99 SRP while the DVD is $29.98 SRP. The upcoming home release includes extra features. All episodes are currently available on Digital. The show has been praised for queer representation.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Black Lightning follows Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams), a man wrestling with a secret. As the father of two daughters and principal of a charter high school that also serves as a safe haven for young people in a neighborhood overrun by gang violence, he is a hero to his community. Nine years ago, Pierce was a hero of a different sort. Gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, he used those powers to keep his hometown streets safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning. Almost a decade later, Pierce’s crime-fighting days are long behind him…or so he thought. But with crime and corruption spreading like wildfire, and those he cares about in the crosshairs of the menacing local gang The One Hundred, Black Lightning returns — to save not only his family, but also the soul of his community.
“In only its first season on the air, Black Lightning has quickly established itself as a hit series with its action-packed episodes and stellar storyline,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, Television Marketing. “We are very excited to release the first season on Blu-ray and DVD so fans and newcomers alike can add the new hit series to their collections along with newly added bonus content.”
