Walker, Superman & Lois receive straight-to-series order at The CW
The CW has handed out straight-to-series orders for Jared Padalecki’s (Supernatural) reimagining of Walker, Texas Ranger, as well as the Arrowverse spinoff Superman & Lois starring Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Walker follows 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 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.
The series is written and produced by Anna Fricke (Being Human, Valor) and executive produced by Dan Lin and Lindsay Liberatore as well as Padalecki. Walker is from CBS Television Studios in association with Rideback.
Superman & Lois stars Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch as the world’s most famous Super Hero and comic books’ most famous journalist as they deal with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society. Both Hoechlin and Tulloch have already appeared as these iconic characters in multiple episodes of The CW’s DC Super Hero series, including this season’s Crisis on Infinite Earths Crossover event, which concludes tonight.
Based on the characters from DC created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Superman & Lois is written and executive produced by Todd Helbing (The Flash) and executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns. The series is from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
