Black Lightning WonderCon 2018 Round Table Interview: Writer Pat Charles

The first season of The CW’s new hit DC series Black Lightning is about to come to a conclusion with two remaining episodes. To get ready for that, Black Lightning Podcast joined fellow reporters at WonderCon this year to chat with the writers of the series as they break down the process of writing the Pierce family and more.

One of the great writers we spoke with was Pat Charles as he discussed what is coming in the remaining episodes of Season 1 and more. Some of the highlights that he spoke about include:

-Which character’s voice Pat has in his head when writing the characters on the show and who speaks to him the most.

-How they have setup Lala’s arc and where that character is going in coming episodes.

-What Pat’s experience has been like in this writers room compared to others that he has been part of.

-What sort of influence Arvin Pierce’s (Jefferson’s father) work will continue to have in Black Lightning’s life.

-Will certain DC Comics characters appear on the show in the near future.
