Posted by

Black Lightning is the latest superhero to join the CW network channel along with Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl.

The D.C. Comics African-American character is back into action to fight a local gang called the 100, after nine years retired due to the impact this kind of life had on his family.

Where was Black Lightning filmed

The show is based on the popular DC Comics character stars, among others Cress Williams as Jefferson Pierce (Prison Break, Close to Home), China Anne McClain as his younger daughter, Nafessa Williams as the older daughter, and the rapper Krondon as the bad guy.

But, where is Black Lightning set? The fictional city of Freeland was filmed in Atlanta and its surroundings in Georgia.

Atlanta has become the Hollywood of the South where every year hundreds of productions are shot in and around the city. The filming locations of Ozark were also all shot here in Georgia.
