Tonight, Barry is doing thug life time while the Trickster returns to menace Central City on an all new The Flash; in Freeland, Jefferson Pierce is trying to figure out if he should be Black Lightning once again; and at 10pm, the season 5 premiere of Drunk History featuring kickass heroines through time.
Tonight is about the return of The Flash and the series premiere of the highly anticipated Black Lightning. The newest addition to the DC-Arrow verse looks like a solid entry and expect us to be recapping it here at Pop Culture Review.
In honor of the return of new Arrow-verse shows next week and The CW’s Winter TCA this past Sunday where they clarified their scheduling plans, today The Daily Download is focusing on latest trailers for all of your favorite DC shows.
As for scheduling, in case you haven’t heard: Because Black Lightning will be airing in the Legends‘ normal 9pm, Tuesday night slot, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow won’t be back for a few weeks. On February 12, it’ll take over Supergirl‘s 8pm, Monday night slot spot for 9 weeks (which is the rest of its season run). And then, on April 16, Supergirl returns for the remainder of its season (ending on June 18). As The CW announced, it’ll be 23 consecutive weeks of new Supergirl/Legends episodes, which is pretty cool.
Today, we’re bringing you some of musical theater nerd love with an all too brief stinger for Jesus Christ Superstar: Live in Concert; a trailer for the new David Letterman project on Netflix; and most importantly, the trailers for The CW’s Black Lightning which, while not new, are relevant as the series premiere is next week!
