The cast and crew of Walker: Independence will appear during PaleyFest Fall TV Previews, where they had a virtual panel in preparation for the show’s premiere on October 6.

Katherine McNamara (Abby Walker), Matt Barr (Hoyt Rawlins), Katie Findlay (Kate), Greg Hovanessian (Tom Davidson), Philemon Chambers (Augustus), Justin Johnson Cortez (Calian), Lawrence Kao (Kai), Gabriela Quezada (Lucia Montero), Seamus Fahey (Executive Producer) and Jared Padalecki (Executive Producer) all appear on the panel and share their thoughts on the upcoming Walker prequel. The panel was moderated by Damian Holbrook from TV Guide Magazine.

Fahey and Padalecki talked about getting started with the show, casting, and how Fahey came to them with the idea of Walker: Independence before the original Walker aired. The cast and crew also dive deeper into telling the story from Abigail’s point of view, Matt Barr’s Hoyt being killed off in Walker, representation in westerns, what’s in store for each of their characters, and more. There’s also mention of them looking into a crossover/flashback/flashforward episode on Walker.

The festival will launch on Tuesday, September 13 at 10 a.m. EST exclusively for Paley Center Members and Citi Cardmembers. The panels will then be available for the general public on Friday, September 16 at 10 a.m. EST and will be available on Paley Center’s YouTube channel.
