The Equalizer Season 4: 2023 release, cast, plot and more

Queen Latifah in The EqualizerCBS

Here’s everything we know about The Equalizer Season 4, including cast details, plot speculation, and whether there’s a release date.

The Equalizer started out as a CBS series in the 1980s, following Edward Woodward’s Robert McCall, a retired intelligence agent who takes on criminals, corrupt politicians, police offers – basically anyone who harms a nice, everyday person.

In 2014, Antoine Fuqua rebooted the franchise with Denzel Washington. In the movie, he killed Russian gangsters with corkscrews, barbed wire, and a nail gun – so, as you’d expect, it led to a sequel.

However, Robert McCall isn’t the only Equalizer on our screen, because we also have Queen Latifah’s Robyn McCall, who’s set to return for Season 4 – so, here’s what we know.

“They’re going to ask questions about things afterwards. They’re going to have conversations amongst themselves because of some of the subject matter that we’re tackling. And, hopefully, they’ll start to say, ‘Damn, Latifah was badass.’ The ego in me wants them to say that, [and I hope] they will.”

“She keeps him alive and conscious to pump him for information because clearly, he knows where her brother is.

“We find out in Episode 308 that Mel’s brother may or may not be involved in some high-level money funneling with the mob. So the stranger from 307 is revealed to have been hired help from that group to help extract Edison.”
