Black Lightning comes to an end, CW doesn’t picks up Spin-Off “Painkiller”

According to Deadline, Black Lightning‘s Jordan Calloway broke the news to his fans that his Painkiller spinoff will not be moving forward at The CW as it defines its 2021 fall schedule. Shorty after The CW revealed what is and isn’t in the works, Calloway spoke fans and followers via Instagram TV.

Painkiller will not be going forward, so let’s rip that band-aid off now,” he said.

It sucks that the show will not be moving forward and is being announced the same night of the series finale. We wish Jordan and the cast of Black Lightning nothing but the best with future projects.
