According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Painkiller,” a spinoff series of “Black Lightning,” has been transmitted by The CW and may find a new home on HBO Max.
However, it’s still unclear whether WarnerMedia’s streaming service will command the show’s full season, leaving the future of production quite unclear.
“Painkiller” revolves around Khalil Payne (Jordan Calloway), “a young man dominated by guilt from his troubled past in Freeland City, where he acted as a killing machine known as Painkiller. He was a member of the Tobias Whale gang and a weapon of Agent Odell and the sad organization ASA. After attempting to bury the darkest and most devastating part of his personality in an attempt to find peace, Khalil has distanced himself from everyone he loves in a new town, the Akashic Valley. .. But peace is never easy to find for men with a past like Khalil Payne. As his violent and destructive story reaches its idyllic new beginning, Khalil is pushed back into action with a new mission – to bring justice where he had previously punished – but in order to do so, he will have to control his darker side, the Painkiller. .
Previously, Calloway revealed to E! News that the completion of the new production was made possible in part through the efforts of the Black Lives Matter movement, which has dedicated its efforts to ensuring a more equitable supply of papers and projects intended for blacks.
“To be honest, I think Black Lives Matter is probably one of the reasons we were able to get a spin-off. This is what ignited this motivation for more series with people of color ”.
No other details were revealed.
