This September, IGN is spotlighting the best TV coming your way in the 2018-2019 season. Today we’ve got an exclusive behind-the-scenes photo from Black Lightning Season 2, along with a preview from star Cress Williams, who plays the titular hero (aka high school principal Jefferson Pierce). In the sophomore season, Jefferson will be faced with new threats as the town of Freeland must reckon with the ASA’s abduction of its children, who have been experimented on and held in stasis pods, some for decades. Closer to home, Jefferson and his wife Lynn (Christine Adams) are still coming to terms with the fact that both their daughters, Anissa (Nafessa Williams) and Jennifer (China Anne McClain), have inherited Jefferson’s metahuman gene and are manifesting powers, while Jefferson’s nemesis, Tobias Whale (Marvin “Krondon” Jones III) is still at large and plotting his adversary’s demise. Black Lightning Season 2 premieres October 9 on The CW.
