Black Lightning 3

Jefferson Pierce is a man with many faces. He is a former Olympic athlete, respected educator and a father of two.

He is also Black Lightning, superpowered protector of the fictional city of Freeland with the ability to sense and harness electricity.

Jefferson is not the only one with powers and multiple faces. His oldest daughter, Anissa, is a medical student, health clinic volunteer and dedicated social activist.

She is also the superhero known as Thunder who possesses the ability to drastically increase her density, giving her invulnerability and super strength for as long as she can hold her breath.

Finally, Jefferson's youngest daughter, Jennifer, is a fiery teen who inherited her father's athletic gifts but not his desire to be an athlete.

Jennifer also inherited superpowers. Her body generates pure electrical energy and she possesses the potential to be more powerful than Anissa or Jefferson and is known as Lightning.

Lynn Stewart is Jefferson's ex-wife but they are still very much in love in addition to sharing the load as co-parents. She's also an expert in metahuman medicine.

Together, the Pierce family faces the challenges of a declined urban community, including a war between a menacing gang that calls itself The 100, and a criminal cartel backed by the Pierce family's nemesis, the infamous gangster, Tobias Whale.

Fortunately, the family has allies in their fight, Jefferson's surrogate father and a former covert superspy, Peter Gambi.

This season, Wayne Brady joins the cast in the recurring role of Tyson "Gravedigger" Spikes, a World War II-era member of the US military who became a "super soldier" after a secret experiment gifted him with enhanced strength, agility, tactical genius, and hand-to-hand combat expertise.

After the war, Spikes defected to the country of Markovia rather than return to a segregated America.

His aim to create a sovereign land for metahumans within Markovia sets him on a collision course with the ASA and Black Lightning.

In the Season 3 premiere, "The Book of Occupation: Chapter One: Birth of Blackbird": We find Jefferson like never before, in the hands of the ASA with his wife Lynn as Agent Odell tightens his grip on the Pierce family, leaving Jennifer abandoned and Freeland without Black Lightning and Thunder.

But Anissa secretly defies Odell in her alter ego as Blackbird with the able tactical and technical support of Gambi.

Growing Up Hip Hop 5

On the most dramatic season yet, the world of hip hop is rocked by social media wars, a shocking arrest and family bombshells.

Angela Simmons and Romeo Miller's ongoing beef continues to populate headlines as they throw grenades from afar.

The fiery feud takes an unexpected turn when Romeo devises a peace offering that tragically backfires.

Angela, on the other hand, finds herself a new business partner... her old flame, Bow Wow, who finds himself on the urge of temptation as the exes try to navigate a working relationship.

After the brutal confrontation at her engagement party, Egypt Criss is on a warpath to prove that she is no longer the baby of the group by stubbornly defending her fiancé Sam.

Briana Latrise gets caught in the crosshairs of a social media war with the Pepper's but has ammunition on Sam that has yet to be unloaded...

When Egypt finally takes matters into her own hands, she crosses a line that cannot be erased. But nothing prepares Egypt for the backlash from her parents, Pepa and Treach.

Meanwhile, Pepa's niece Tee Tee has estranged herself from the family and is hiding out in Jamaica with her boyfriend of one year... along with a life-altering secret.

In New York, Damon Dash makes headlines around the world when news breaks that he has been arrested and handcuffed.

Boogie Dash struggles with an internal battle on whether to support his father or not when they continue to spar between their father-son and business relationship.

The growing pains for the next generation of hip hop leads to unforeseen hardships, tribulations and even bloodshed.

It is up to them to take back the reigns of their legacies or severe ties forever.
