Black Lightning has returned for the fourth time and now it turns out to be the final season of The CW. Some regions of Netflix are expected to receive the fourth season of the series in June 2021, as detailed in this Netflix release schedule for Black Lightning Season 4 below.
Developed by Salim Akil, Black Lightning is one of the newer rosters within the Arrowverse that was originally supposed to go to Fox before returning to The CW. It is one of the few DC titles from The CW to be classified as a Netflix Original series outside of the US.
Cress Williams plays the role of Jefferson Pierce, a crime-fighting school principal who returns to his former life Black Lightning.
As mentioned earlier, Season 4 will serve as the final season of Black Lightning with the originally planned spin-off Painkillerdo not go forward.
Season 4 was also significantly shorter than seasons 2 and 3, reverting to their 13 episode length. Season 4 was also delayed due to the shooting restrictions caused by the pandemic. It aired on February 8, 2021, and recently retired on May 24, 2021.
When will Black Lightning season 4 be on Netflix in the US?
The US is getting on Black Lightning As part of the old output deal, Netflix had The CW.
That traditionally meant there would be new seasons coming to Netflix 8 days after the finale aired, but we have yet to get confirmation that this is happening.
Should the show come to Netflix US during this 8-day release period, it should arrive on June 1, 2021, but again no confirmation. We’ll keep you up to date.
Black Lightning Season 4 Netflix International Release Date
Outside of the US, Netflix runs the show as a Netflix Original, including regions like the UK, Australia, and Canada.
Although some of the previous seasons hit Netflix internationally on a weekly basis, which was no longer the case from season 3 onwards. Instead, the series falls on Netflix in a similar fashion to the US, although not exactly the same date.
Netflix Canada was the only region that has been confirmed so far Black Lightning Season 4 on June 29, 2021. We expect the same for other regions, but will keep you updated.
