The CW has released the first teaser for Jared Padalecki’s (Supernatural) new series Walker, premiering on Thursday, January 21. You can check out the video now in the player below!
Additionally, Deadline brings word that Chris Labadie (Split Lip) has joined the series in a recurring role. Labadie is set to play Jordan, “a hardened, tough ex-con who is in the Green Thumb and Grace program – and he’s also involved in a heroin smuggling operation. He’s a smarmy guy who knows how to get under Walker’s skin.”
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 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 (War Dogs) as Trey Barnett and Odette Annable (Supergirl) as Geri. The series 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.
Walker will premiere on Thursday, January 21, 2021, on The CW.
