Recently, Salim Akil, showrunner for Black Lightning, gave some thoughts on Season 2 of this CW superhero television show. Now, some of the cast members of Black Lightning have given interviews to Collider about the second season of this comic book TV series.
Indeed, Cress Williams, who plays Jefferson Pierce/Black Lightning in this show, discussed the priorities of Jefferson and Black Lightning in Season 2:
“Yeah, well the simple thing is Black Lightning’s priority is always Tobias. It’s always taking care of that, and taking care of Freeland. That’s always like Black Lightning’s priorities. But Jefferson’s, which is actually really clear, in black and white and actually really focused. It’s Jefferson’s priorities that are, his number one priority is family, and the most immediate is probably Jennifer.”
“But then there’s also work. And he’s not allowed, if anything, to deal with one thing at a time because if he could, the first thing, he would just kind of put everything away and go, ‘Okay, I’m gonna sit with Jennifer and we’re figure out how these powers work.’ But life doesn’t work that way, because what’s great, Christine, the actress but also her character gets the whole Green Light Babies thing which really gives her a great journey. But then that becomes the family’s journey.”
“But I think his first priority is always his family. I think family and then it goes out from there. His family to the school to the community and then if you go down into family, the most pressing is Jennifer.”
China Anne McClain
Here is what China Anne McClain, who plays Jennifer Pierce in Black Lightning, had to say on whether there is a chance on things working out with Khalil:
“There is a huge possibility of things working out with Khalil. I mean, they were friends before they dated, so she cares a lot about him. He’s in a lot of crap right now, being over there with Tobias, Painkiller, he’s a totally different person than when she first met him. But she still cares about him.”
“And she still wants him to be okay, she still wants the best for him. So, you’re gonna see that throughout the season, her trying to, you know, help and save him. That’s all I’ma say.”
