On Saturday, the cast of the CW’s newest hit Black Lightning including Cress Williams, Marvin ‘Krondon’ Jones III and James Remar took to the panel stage to chat with fans.

First up, Cress Williams talks about what being a part of Black Lightning has meant to him and how the cast just knew the series would be something special:

Marvin Jones III talks about how Black Lightning helps put the “unity” in “community” and how special it was to have the series premiere on Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday weekend.


James Remar adds his thoughts on what makes Black Lightning such a special show and what makes the series resonate with fans:
