Warner Brothers announced Saturday that Jordan Calloway has been promoted to series regular. This means his character Khalil Payne aka Painkiller will be back in a big way and we will see Tobias Whale’s plans for him will unfold over the season. The response from the fans attending the panel was enthusiastic and personally I cannot wait to see how the Pierce family deals with Painkiller both in their everyday lives and in their heroic roles as they defend Freeland.

Black Lighting returns Tuesday October 9th.
