The Equalizer fans are missing the CBS drama and are more than ready for season 3.

The show, starring Queen Latifah as leading protagonist Robyn, is one the latest iteration of the original '80s TV series and two films in recent years. Co-created by executive producers Richard Lindheim, Michael Sloan and Queen Latifah, the show follows the life of former CIA operative Robyn.

In reality, Robyn lives a double life and works undercover to defend those who have nowhere else to turn.

If you have been waiting to see what happens next in Robyn's story, here are all the details we know so far about The Equalizer season 3:
