While promoting Joel Coen's film The Tragedy of Macbeth for Apple TV +, Denzel Washington confirmed to US Collider media that the third installment in the franchise was in the works: “They wrote a third Equalizer, and that's been part of my projects. So I have to get back in shape so that I can beat people up again. Going from The Tragedy of Macbeth and going to beat some bad guys, we can't do better, right? ".
Good profitability despite a disappointing result

Note that a spin off series, with Queen Latifah in the main role, was also launched in 2021, it is broadcast in France on Série Club.
