Jared Padalecki to Star in the Reboot of ‘Walker, Texas Ranger’ for The CW


The Supernatural actor Jared Padalecki has been cast to star in an upcoming CW series Walker.

Based from the CBS’ 1990s action-crime series ‘Walker, Texas Ranger,’ Anna Fricke (Valor) will pen the script and will serve as an executive producer along Padalecki and Dan Lin (Lethal Weapon).

You can read the premise of the show below:

Like the original series, created by Albert S. Ruddy & Leslie Greif, the reboot, in which Walker is getting a female partner, will explore morality, family, and rediscovering our lost common ground. It centers on Cordell Walker (Padalecki), 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 children, navigate clashes with his conservative family, and find unexpected common ground with his new partner (one of the first women in Texas Rangers’ history), while growing increasingly suspicious about the circumstances surrounding his wife’s death.
