The Equalizer Season 4: What to expect from the new season?
With the overall plot details being kept under wraps to avoid early spoilers, we are certain that the new season will definitely continue to be a reimagining of the classic series in which Queen Latifah portrays an enigmatic figure who uses her extensive skills to help those with nowhere else to turn. In addition to this, the official synopsis of the series reads as follows:
“Robyn McCall, an enigmatic woman with a mysterious background who 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 main cast members who will reprise their roles are as follows: Queen Latifah as Robyn McCall, a.k.a. “The Equalizer”, Tory Kittles as Marcus Dante, Adam Goldberg as Harry Keshegian, Liza Lapira as Melody “Mel” Bayani, Laya DeLeon Hayes as Delilah, and Lorraine Toussaint as Viola “Aunt Vi” Marsette. Some of the recurring cast members who are expected to return include Jennifer Ferrin as Avery Grafton, Frank Pando as Captain Torres, and Brett Dalton as Carter Griffin.
Additionally, the series is executive produced by Wilson, Glass, Marlowe, Miller, Dana Owens (Queen Latifah), John Davis, John Fox, Debra Martin Chase, original Equalizer series creator Richard Lindheim (who died from heart failure on January 18, 2021, while working on the series; the series premiere is dedicated to his memory), Shakim Compere, and Joseph C. Wilson. Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, produces in association with CBS Studios.
The Equalizer Season 4 Frequently Asked Questions
Will Season 4 be the last season?
Despite no official announcement, there is a good chance that this season could potentially turn out to be the final season.
What is the Nielsen rating of the series?
The series has an 18-49 rating.
How many episodes will be in the fourth season?
The exact episode count for The Equalizer Season 4 will be reduced!
It can be around 10 episodes due to the delays in production caused by the dual strikes, which makes it impossible for the network to produce a full 22-episode season with so little time left. We’d also like to point out that the titles and synopsis have not been released, as these details will be revealed once the release date draws closer to avoid any early spoilers of the plotlines.
Where to stream?
When the fourth season is released, it will be available to stream on CBS, Paramount+, and FuboTV. All the prior seasons of the show are also available to rent or buy on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, and Vudu, depending on the viewers’ location, with preferred membership plans. It is also available to watch for free on Pluto. Moreover, it is also available to purchase on Prime Video and Apple TV.
Apart from CBS, the international audience can now exclusively stream the show on various networks based on regions.
Has the official trailer for the fourth season been released?
Unfortunately, the network hasn’t released any new trailer for the upcoming season, as the filming status has not been disclosed, so it is way too early for any network to produce any short preview to give some glimpses about the show’s respective characters’ arcs and plotlines. Until the network releases any new promos, we urge the readers to check out the official trailer of The Equalizer Season 3 below:
On Rotten Tomatoes, the series has an approval rating of 67% based on reviews from 30 critics, with an average rating of 6/10.
