Black Lightning to End with Season 4 in 2021


Via Variety, The CW will end Black Lightning with its upcoming season 4 in 2021.  No reason was given for the cancellation of the series.  Black Lightning will be joining Supergirl which also will end with its next season in 2021.

The news comes after a backdoor pilot has been ordered for Black Lightning character Painkiller last week.  There’s no assurance it will go to series though either.  News that both Black Lightning and Supergirl will be ending their runs after the crossover event Crisis in the past season united almost all The CW Berlanti Arrowverse shows into one universe seems rather surprising especially since the unification would have opened the doors to more stories and mini-crossover events.  Hopefully, the characters will make cameo appearances at least throughout The CW’s Arrowverse of shows.
