A synopsis for this re-imagined reboot of the Chuck Norris classic Walker, Texas Ranger is as follows:
WALKER, a reimagining of the long-running series “Walker, Texas Ranger,” stars Jared Padalecki (“Supernatural”) as Cordell Walker, a widower and father of two with his own moral code, who returns home to Austin after being undercover for two years, only to discover there’s harder work to be done at home. He’ll attempt to reconnect with his creative and thoughtful son (Kale Culley, “Me, Myself and I”) and his headstrong, somewhat rebellious teenaged daughter (Violet Brinson, “Sharp Objects”) and navigate clashes with his family – an ADA brother (Keegan Allen, “Pretty Little Liars”) who stepped in during Walker’s absence, his perceptive mother (Molly Hagen, “Herman’s Head”) and his traditional rancher father (Mitch Pileggi, “The X-Files”). Walker’s former colleague is now his Ranger Captain, (Coby Bell, “The Game”). Walker finds unexpected common ground with his new partner (one of the first women in Texas Rangers’ history) played by Lindsey Morgan (“The 100”), while growing increasingly suspicious about the circumstances surrounding his wife’s death. The show also stars Jeff Pierre as Trey Barnett. WALKER is written and executive produced by Anna Fricke (“Being Human,” “Valor”), and executive produced by Dan Lin and Lindsay Liberatore and Jared Padalecki. WALKER is from CBS Television Studios in association with Rideback.
Many casting decisions have recently been revealed, the most recent including Matt Barr as Hoyt, Alex Landi as Bret, the fiancé of Liam (Keegan Allen), and Chris Labadie as Jordan, ramping up fans’ anticipation for the series’ release. Other notable casting decisions include Odette Annable as Geri and Genevieve Padalecki (Jared’s real-life wife) as Emily, Cordell’s deceased wife.
We can’t wait to see what native Texas boy Jared Padalecki and the plethora of other wonderful cast members have in store for us with this brand new adventure. Walker premiers on January 21 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. See you there!
