The Equalizer 3

A reimagining of the classic series, starring Queen Latifah as Robyn McCall - an enigmatic woman with a mysterious background who uses her extensive skills to help those with nowhere else to turn.

As McCall acclimates to civilian life, she is compelled to use her considerable resources to help Jewel, a teenager accused of murder and on the run from the criminals who framed her for the crime.

Robyn McCall presents 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.

Robyn's clandestine work remains a secret from her smart and observant daughter, Delilah, and her aunt Vi, who lives with Robyn to help her balance life as a working mother.

Joining Robyn as champions of justice are William Bishop, her former CIA handler and longtime friend; Melody "Mel" Bayani, an edgy bar owner and a colleague from Robyn's past; and Harry Keshegian, a paranoid and brilliant white-hat hacker.

As Robyn aids the oppressed and exploited, her work garners the attention of shrewd NYPD Detective Marcus Dante, who doggedly seeks to uncover the identity of the vigilante known as The Equalizer.

In the Season 3 premiere, "Boom": In the aftermath of her abduction, the walls between McCall's family and vigilante life continue to crumble as those closest to her must come together for the first time to save her.
