Set your DVRs, folks. The Equalizer season finale is set for 8 p.m. Eastern on Sunday, May 23. That'll wrap up the first season of the acclaimed CBS series that stars Queen Latifah, Chris Noth, Lourraine Toussaint and Adam Goldberg.

But don't worry — The Equalizer Season 2 already has been approved

If you've yet to check out The Equalizer yet, you really should. Here's the full gist from CBS:

The Equalizer is a reimagining of the classic series starring Academy Award nominee and multi-hyphenate Queen Latifah (Chicago, Bessie) as Robyn McCall, an enigmatic woman with a mysterious background who uses her extensive skills as a former CIA operative to help those with nowhere else to turn. 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.

So you've got a few more weeks of new episodes before the wait begins.
