Black Lightning boss Salim Akil confirmed that season 2 will continue to focus on Tobias Whale as the main villain. However, he also hinted that “other forces” will stir up trouble for the Jeffersons.
He told THR:
I don't want to introduce too many villains.
I want us to settle in now that we know everyone. We know what the ASA is, we know who Tobias is, so now we can really tell some grounded stories about our villains, our heroes, the people in Freeland. So, yes, Tobias will be our villain but there will be other forces in Freeland and outside of Freeland that will rear their ugly heads.
As for what's in the mysterious briefcase, Akil teased:
I can't tell you, but I can give you a general answer.
There is power in that box, power like Tobias has never had before. What he sees in it is horrible to us, but to him it's exciting. He feels it's going to make him the king of Freeland and beyond.
Speaking with TV Line, star Cress Williams has teased new conflicts coming up between Jefferson and Lynn. Enjoy the clip below:
