'Black Lightning' Cast Say Season 3 Is 'Like A Different Show'

'Black Lightning' Cast Say Season 3 Is 'Like A Different Show'

Black Lightning‘s upcoming third season is heading in a bit of a different direction!

The cast of the CW show recently dished on the new episodes and what we can expect to see from the Pierce family.

“I think generally you’re not going to see the characters in their natural environments for quite a while,” Christine Adams told TV Line. “You’re going to see them totally out of their elements, in so many ways, not just physically where they are, but what they’re doing and what their focus is completely different from season one or two.”

“It’s almost like a different show in a way,” she continued. “When we went back to work, it was different sets, different clothes… There’s no Pierce family dinner on the horizon.”

“I really hope that we get to fight together more this season,” China Anne McClain chimed in. “Usually we’re really spread out.”

Black Lightning returns for season three on Monday, October 21 on The CW!
