I seriously question why they went with Black Lightning instead of someone more well known like Static Shock. I've been waiting over a decade to see a live action Static Shock.
Okay that's not fair if he takes on a the cast of the Real World they don't even have powers.
If this follows the current superhero CW show model the first 2 seasons will be good the third season will be OK and the 4th will be awful. (Flash has been OK recently TBH but it had it's worst episode so far.)
if superheroes are part of the real world, what's in the comics?
