Viewers can watch CBS live without cable with one of these streaming services: fuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, Paramount Plus, YouTube TV, and AT&T TV.
The official plotline for Season 2 has not been released but how things went during the previous edition, it seems the main storyline that will be addressed is definitely Delilah discovering Robyn's secret life as a vigilante. This tension between mother and daughter will definitely be the main storyline in new episodes as Robyn tries to navigate their shifting relationship while still taking on difficult cases.
The final episode of Season 1 sees Delilah sneaking around and finally discovering Robyn’s cache of weapons, passports, wigs, and many more things. Delilah was already suspecting her mother to be more than just a normal working woman and after finding credible evidence, she is sure that her mother is a vigilante.
The season ended with Delilah finding Robyn and confronting her about what she does.
All the original cast members will be returning for Season 2. Academy Award nominee Queen Latifah will be returning as Robyn McCall while Laya DeLeon will be back as Delilah, Robyn’s daughter. The rest of the main cast is also expected to return in Season 2, including Liza Lapira and Adam Goldberg as wife and husband duo Mel and Harry, respectively.
Other actors to feature on the show include Chris Noth (William Bishop), and Tory Kittles (Marcus Dante).
Based on the television show of the same name from the 1980s, ‘The Equalizer’ is developed by Andrew W. Marlowe and Terri Edda Miller. Zoe Robyn and Meredith Mill serve as producers on the show while Liz Friedlander, Richard Lindheim, Shakim Compere, Debra Martin Chase, John Davis, John Fox, and Randy Zisk serve as executive producers along with Latifah, Miller, and Marlowe.
The trailer of 'The Equalizer' Season 2 is fast-paced and quite engaging. The clip sees McCall going on a new mission and suggests that she has been given the job of tracking down the robbers who killed a lot of innocent people during their last heist. It also highlights her passion and determination to help everyone and save everyone from bad people.
