Lindsey Morgan joins Jared Padalecki’s Walker series at The CW
The CW’s The 100 star Lindsey Morgan has joined Jared Padalecki’s (Supernatural) Walker series in a lead role, Variety has confirmed. The upcoming project received a series order at The CW for the 2020-2021 season.
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 (Morgan) — one of the first women in Texas Rangers’ history — while growing increasingly suspicious about the circumstances surrounding his wife’s death.
Morgan will play Micki, Walker’s new partner who was born and raised in San Antonio. The character is described as focused and perceptive, and her family has been in Texas since before it was Texas. She’s been in the Army and on the police force and knows first-hand what it’s like to be singled out and discriminated against because of her gender.
The series is written and produced by Anna Fricke (Being Human, Valor) and executive produced by Dan Lin and Lindsay Liberatore of Rideback as well as Padalecki. Walker is from CBS Television Studios in association with Rideback.
