Release Date, Returning Cast & Everything We Know


  • The Equalizer season 3 ended on a fiery cliffhanger, leaving fans anxious for the fate of the characters.
  • CBS has confirmed The Equalizer season 4, showing confidence in the show’s success and storytelling.
  • The release date for The Equalizer season 4 has been set for February 18th, 2024.



The Equalizer season 4 news has started coming in after the huge cliffhanger that ended the third season. The Equalizer is a TV show reboot of both a classic TV series (starring Edward Woodward) and a movie that remade that series (starring Denzel Washington). The difference here is that Robert McCall became Robyn McCall, and the new gender-swapped lead is played by Queen Latifa. Everything else remained the same for the first three seasons of The Equalizer TV show, with Robyn a former special ops agent who is now someone who helps people in her neighborhood who come to her because they can’t find a way out of their problems.

The third season of The Equalizer show took things to a more personal level with Robyn’s past coming back to haunt her, her family and friends finding themselves in constant danger, and an eventual season finale that saw three of her closest friends tied up in a room that is lit on fire. How that plays out in The Equalizer season 4 story remains to be seen, but fans anxiously await the show’s return to find out the fates of their favorite The Equalizer cast members. As the wait continues, there is still a lot of The Equalizer season 4 news dropping about the upcoming season.

The Equalizer renewal for season 3 and 4 arrived before the second season finale even aired. This was huge news for viewers of the show because it meant that the network had confidence in The Equalizer and the showrunners could play out season 3 knowing there would be a fourth season as well. There is no word on whether the fourth season will be the last.

The Equalizer Season 4 Story

There is currently no information about The Equalizer season 4 story. The finale of season 3 saw the shocking moment where Robyn watched Harry, Mel, and Dante get trapped in the flames, with nothing she could do to help them. Now, there is little chance that all three of these characters will die, but it is always a possibility. If any of them die, expect The Equalizer season 4 story to be one of revenge for Robyn and everyone who hurt her.

    Robyn McCall, an enigmatic woman with a mysterious background, uses her extensive skills to help those with nowhere else to turn. McCall comes across to most as an average single mom who is quietly raising her teenage daughter. But to a trusted few, she is “The Equalizer” — an anonymous guardian angel and defender of the downtrodden, who’s also dogged in her pursuit of personal redemption. The Equalizer is a reboot of the 1985 TV series, which also spawned two films starring Denzel Washington, one in 2014 and The Equalizer in 2018. The new series stars Queen Latifah in the titular role.
