With the formidable vigilante skills of Robyn McCall at its core, this thrilling series ensures that viewers will remain in suspense until the very last moment.

Continue reading to delve into the latest developments about Equalizer Season 4.
Equalizer Season 4 Release Date
It was initially slated to make its highly anticipated return in September 2023. Unfortunately, due to the dual strikes in Hollywood, although the Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike has now been resolved, negotiations for the Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) strike are still underway. This led major production houses to put a halt on the development of the new season, resulting in a delay until the following year. Yes, you read it correctly!
As a consequence, fans can expect Equalizer Season 4 to not be available for streaming anytime soon, especially not in October 2023 for CBS’s 2023–24 fall broadcast season.
We’re speculating that the new season might premiere in the first quarter of 2024, starting from January and extending through March. This, of course, is contingent on production commencing later this year, maintaining the same time slot of every Sunday night at 9 p.m. on a weekly basis, without causing any unwelcome disruptions in the previously confirmed primetime schedule. Additionally, CBS has officially opted to postpone the release of the majority of their scripted shows.
The network will now feature all the unscripted shows, and there’s a possibility that reruns of Equalizer’s previous seasons may be included for the remaining months of 2023 to fill in the gaps in the fall broadcast season. Therefore, we encourage fans to keep an eye on social media for further updates, which will be shared in due course. Until then, we’ll have to remain patient and await the creative direction that the writers and crew will take moving forward!
In the interim, be sure to check out the official announcement from the show’s Twitter handle, confirming the renewal of the series with the quote, “More action and equalizing on the way. Seasons 3 and 4 are officially loading… #TheEqualizer”.
Equalizer Season 4 Plot
The upcoming season promises to delve deeper into the enigmatic life of Robyn McCall, a woman with a shadowy past who employs her extensive skill set to aid those in desperate need. To most, McCall appears as an ordinary single mother quietly raising her teenage daughter. Yet, to a select few, she is known as “The Equalizer” – an anonymous guardian angel and champion of the oppressed, driven by a relentless pursuit of personal redemption.
For viewers who have followed the gripping third season, particularly the finale titled “Eye for an Eye,” it’s evident that the network won’t leave the plot hanging after the major cliffhanger that unfolded in the final episode. In this intense conclusion, the team faces imminent danger when McCall’s former CIA colleague reemerges, alive and fueled by a thirst for revenge, putting Dante, Harry, and Mel in jeopardy. Aunt Vi and Delilah must act swiftly to defuse a hostage situation.
As we eagerly await the next season, it’s worth anticipating how these riveting storylines will evolve. What twists and turns lie ahead for McCall and her team?
The main cast members set to reprise their roles include Queen Latifah as Robyn McCall, also known as “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. Additionally, recurring cast members such as Jennifer Ferrin as Avery Grafton, Frank Pando as Captain Torres, and Brett Dalton as Carter Griffin are expected to make a return.
It’s worth noting that potential adjustments to the cast, whether through new additions or departures, may be announced due to cost-cutting measures stemming from the industry strikes. Additionally, the inclusion of notable guest stars in the upcoming season will be revealed in due course.
Furthermore, the series boasts an impressive roster of executive producers, including Richard Lindheim, the creator of the original Equalizer series (whose passing is respectfully acknowledged in the dedication of the series premiere), alongside individuals such as Queen Latifah, John Davis, John Fox, Debra Martin Chase, and more. The production is a collaboration between Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, and CBS Studios.
