CBS has announced the renewal of The Equalizer, which stars Queen Latifah, for two more seasons. The series is the network’s No. 1 Sunday scripted show.
Since premiering on Super Bowl Sunday in 2021, the drama has been a Sunday night staple, and fans of the series can count on two more seasons beginning in the 2022-2023 television season.
The action-packed drama follows Robyn McCall (Queen Latifah), a woman with a mysterious background who uses her skills to help those with no one left to turn to.
She comes across to most people as just a simple mother living a quiet life, but to those who know, know her as “The Equalizer.”
Thom Sherman, senior executive vice president of programming at CBS Entertainment commented on the renewal, saying “THE EQUALIZER continues to pack a powerful punch on Sunday nights, and we’re thrilled to have it back for two more seasons,” he added, “The success of THE EQUALIZER is due to the sum of its parts – an outstanding cast led by the superb Queen Latifah, plus the exceptional creative team that has continued to evolve their storytelling with a compelling mix of everyday justice, family dynamics and real-world issues that connect and resonate with audiences.”
The series became Sunday’s number one scripted series, averaging 9.46 million viewers while amassing 1.2 billion social media impressions through its current season.
The renewal announcement will bring The Equalizer through its fourth season.
The series stars Queen Latifah, Lorraine Toussaint, Tory Kittles, Adam Goldberg, Liza Lapira, and Laya DeLeon Hayes.
The Equalizer is produced by Andrew Marlowe, Terri Edda Miller, Dana Owens (Queen Latifah), John Davis, John Fox, Debra Martin Chase, and Richard Lindheim. Executive producers Joseph C. Wilson and Adam Glass will serve as co-showrunners next season.
