When will Black Lightning Season 4 be on Netflix in the US?

As per the previous output agreement Netflix had with The CW, Black Lightning is still available in the US. We haven’t seen any indication that fresh seasons are being added to Netflix 8 days after the finale airs, despite the fact that this is the standard.

Assuming an 8-day release window, the show would hit Netflix in the United States on June 1, 2021. There will be updates provided.

Black Lightning Season 4 International Netflix Release Date

The show is available on Netflix in the UK, Australia, and Canada, among other places, as a Netflix Original. A few of the previous seasons were initially made available on Netflix in other countries on a weekly basis, but this practise was discontinued after the third season.

It will instead premiere on Netflix around the same time as the United States. To yet, only Netflix Canada has announced that they will be streaming Black Lightning Season 4 on June 29th, 2021. We anticipate this happening in other regions as well but will keep you updated.

Teaser for Black Lightning Season 4

Black Lightning’s Jefferson Pierce is taking a different tack with his superhero profession in the season four trailer.

The man confesses, “I can no longer be the man I was” in the video. Black Lightning was attempting to save the world. I’m just trying to protect my loved ones.

He continues to assert that the hero is no longer with us, but it appears that his fans aren’t going to give up without a fight.

Fans can extrapolate from this that Jefferson will have a hard time adjusting to his new role as Black Lightning in the series’ closing episodes.


Black Lightning’s DVD release date has changed several times since the show’s first announcement.

A DVD release date couldn’t be determined with any degree of certainty, given that the series finale wouldn’t air until February 2021. Since this is the last season, there was no urgency to release the DVD before the next season started airing.
