By Gabriela Vatu / October 4, 2019

Let's be honest here: superheroes are very attractive and their stories will keep us coming back for more and more and more. Black Lightning is a great superhero TV drama series and US season this October.

Black Lightning first premiered back in January 2018 and aired a second season that same year's fall. The show features Cress Williams as Jefferson Pierce, also known as Black Lightning, China Anne McClain who plays Jennifer Pierce, also known as Lightning, and Nafessa Williams who plays Anissa Pierce, also known as Thunder.

The show's new season will see Black Lightning locked up while the country falls into chaos. There's a lot happening in the trailer and it makes us super excited to see what's coming next.

When and Where to Watch Black Lightning?

Black Lightning is returning to The CW on October 7th and you will be able to watch all-new episodes starting with 9 PM.

Either way, we know we're going to enjoy every minute of it.

How Can I Watch Black Lightning From Outside of the United States?

Live TV platforms and streaming services all have to respect licensing deals. This means that when you travel outside of the United States you no longer have a way to access these platforms. The only way you can bypass this issue is by tricking the site into thinking you are still in the United States. This isn't such a hard thing to do because you can use a VPN to change your IP address, and you will appear to be back home. We can only recommend the very best to you, so we will direct you towards ExpressVPN, which has dozens of servers in the United States and thousands of them across the world, as well as some really great privacy features that are essential to going undetected.

Can I Watch Black Lightning on The CW Website?

Unfortunately, you will not be able to watch The CW live on their website because there is no live stream available there. Your only options are, therefore, to subscribe to fuboTV, Hulu or YouTube TV in order to watch the show. (Note: The CW is a channel that broadcasts locally so, even with the last TV service, you may be unable to watch the channel. If that's the case for you, you can use a VPN to change your IP address so it matches one in a different city, where The CW is available. Click here to learn how you can do this.)

Can I Watch The CW Black Lightning With the TV antenna?

The CW is one of the few networks that continue to broadcast over-the-air, so you can use a TV antenna to watch the channel. Antennas are great for cord-cutters because they are cheap to purchase and they give people a way to watch a couple of dozens of TV channels for free.

Before you buy any device, you should check a site such as NoCable, which can tell you what channels broadcast over-the-air in your specific location. Furthermore, you can also figure out what range you need your device to have so you can enjoy as many channels as possible. We are already providing you with some antenna options.
