Since the sophomore season of The Equilizer ended, fans have been inquiring about the status of a third season. Luckily, The Equalizer Season 3 is under production and expected to release soon. The popular show has been receiving the highest viewership on CBS on Sundays ever since it first aired.
The crime drama series was first released on February 7th, 2021, and is a reboot of the original 1980s show of the same name. The Equalizer has previously also released in the form of a film back in 2014 and a sequel in 2018. Fans cannot get enough of the franchise. Therefore, even after multiple versions of the show, the latest version is still going strong.
Executively produced by Richard Lindheim and Michael Sloan, the series is dedicated to the memory of Lindheim, who passed away due to heart failure in early 2021. The show garnered a 7.4 out of 10 rating on IMDb.
The Equalizer Season 3 Cast
A majority of the success of the show should undoubtedly go to the stellar cast that has delivered commendable performances. There is no official news regarding the exact cast of The Equilizer season 3. However, based on season 2’s ending, it is easy to predict the cast for the latest season. All of the original cast will probably return for the 3rd season.
In the lead, we have the powerhouse of talent, Queen Latifah portraying the role of Robyn McCall, also known as, The Equalizer, a former CIA operative and a divorced mother. The American actor, rapper, and singer have a long list of hit movies to her name. She has also received multiple accolades throughout her career, including a Grammy Award, a Golden Globe Award, and a PrimeTime Emmy Award.
Torry Kittles plays the role of Marcus Dante, an NYPD detective who is adamant about finding Robyn (The Equalizer). Kittles is a talented actor who has appeared in multiple movies and shows, including Malibu’s Most Wanted (2003) and Sons of Anarchy (2008-2011).
Adam Goldberg plays Harry Keshegian, a master hacker who falsified his death with the help of Robyn. Goldberg is an American actor, filmmaker, musician, and photographer, mostly known for playing supporting roles in films but has also portrayed leading roles in some independent films. If you are a Friends fan, you may recognize him as Eddie, Joey’s volatile roommate.
Liza Lapira is in as Melody Bayani, a former US Air Force sniper and an old friend of Robyn’s. Laya DeLeon Hayes portrays Delilah, Robyn’s rebellious 15-year-old daughter. Lorraine Toussaint plays Viola Marsette, Robyn’s paternal aunt, and Chris Noth as William Bishop, an eccentric ex-CIA director and an old friend of Robyn.
Further, Erica Camarano, Jennifer Ferrin, Frank Pando, and Dominic Fumusa have recurring roles in the series.
The Equalizer Season 3 Release Date
The Equalizer Season 3 may be dropping sometime in the Fall of 2022. The season 2 finale aired about a month ago, and fans are already restlessly awaiting the latest installment’s release. At the same time, there has been no official announcement regarding the exact date of release of The Equalizer season 3. Based on the careful analysis, we can predict a possible date.
The latest season will likely air on October 2nd, 2022. This will help maintain the show’s Sunday streaming date and also allow the show to benefit from the football season madness. If not October 2nd, the next predicted date would be 9th October 2022, a week later. This date will also allow the channel to gather the maximum audience as it will air following the afternoon NFL game.
Moreover, the show’s first season featured ten episodes, and the second one featured 18 episodes. This makes it hard to predict how many episodes The Equalizer season 3 has in store for us. However, if we consider the team to be testing the waters with the first 10-episode season and season 2 to be the real deal, then it can be estimated that season 3 will have anywhere around 15-20 episodes.
However, these are simply predictions, although carefully thought through ones. We recommend our readers take them with a grain of salt. We will update the site with the latest news regarding the show’s release date as soon as it is revealed.
The Equalizer follows the life of ex-CIA operative Robyn McCall, who is now a divorced mother and outwardly spends most of her time living an average mundane life. Secretly, Robyn uses her skills and extensive contacts from the CIA to help those in need. She works as the vigilante named The Equalizer, acting as a guardian angel and defendant for those unable to defend themselves.
Based on the primarily calm ending of the sophomore season, it is difficult to predict the third season’s storyline. There have been no updates regarding the season’s synopsis from the team either. However, we expect The equalizer season 3 to continue showing Robyn doing her vigilante work. With a new season come new nemeses and challenges for our protagonist. We also expect to see Robyn further attempt to restore her relationship with her daughter, Delilah.
As of now, there is no trailer for the latest season of The Equalizer. This should be no surprise as there are still a few months until the latest season releases. We expect a trailer to drop about a month prior to the 3rd installment airing on CBS.
Production and Renewal Status
If CBS airs the show this fall, that would mean that most of the filming has already been completed. With some minor post-production work left, the show team should wrap up its third season soon.
What is the true cherry on top is that not only season 3 but The Equalizer has also been renewed for a 4th season. This means that fans also have something to look forward to in 2023.
