'Black Lightning' Spinoff In The Works With This Character, To Get Backdoor Pilot

Another DC Comics series could be coming to The CW!

It was just revealed that a Black Lightning spinoff is in the works called Painkiller, following Jordan Calloway‘s character Khalil/Painkiller, THR reports.

The possible series will get a backdoor pilot in the seventh episode of the upcoming fourth season of the original show.

In the episode, “Khalil is riddled with the guilt of his troubled past from his former life in Freeland City, where as super-enhanced killing machine Painkiller he was a member of Tobias Whale’s gang and a weapon of Agent Odell and the shadowy ASA. After attempting to bury Painkiller, Khalil moves to Akashic valley to find peace as his history clashes with a new beginning and he is forced back into action to bring justice.”

This would be the latest DC spinoff coming to the network, following the recent news that Supergirl is ending after it’s upcoming sixth season. There is still no word yet on the Arrow spinoff, Green Arrow and the Canaries.

Painkiller is also the second spinoff to air a backdoor pilot in the upcoming season. Nancy Drew will also air a backdoor pilot for the possible new spinoff Tom Swift.
