If you're a fan of Supernatural star Jared Padalecki and The CW's Walker, it's been a pretty good week for you. With the reimagining of the popular Chuck Norris-starring series set to premiere on Thursday, January 21, 2021, we've gotten teasers and preview images offering a better view of Cordell Walker's world after the tragic death of his wife (Genevieve Padalecki). We've had a chance to meet Cordell's new partner Micki Ramirez (Lindsey Morgan) as well as Captain Larry James (Coby Bell). On the family side, we also meet August Walker (Kale Culley) and Stella Walker (Violet Brinson)- and now?
One of the biggest takeaways from what we've seen so far is how there seems to be a whole lot of people who appear to have some personal vested interest in Cordell not looking into his wife's (Genevieve Padalecki) death any further. As you'll see in the following trailer, "Moving On" isn't as easy as it sounds:
The CW's Walker is 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 for two years, 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 as Trey Barnett.
When the series debuts next month, fans of Big Little Lies will notice a familiar face. Jeffrey Nordling is joining the cast in the recurring role of Stan Morrison. Morrison is a successful businessman and a networker — fast-talking and all grins and finger guns. A friend of the Walker family, Morrison is referred to by Cordell as "Austin's finest string-puller."
The CW's Walker also stars Lindsey Morgan (The 100), Keegan Allen (Pretty Little Liars), Mitch Pileggi (The X-Files), Coby Bell (The Gifted), Jeff Pierre (9-1-1, Beyond), Violet Brinson (Sharp Objects), Kale Culley (Me, Myself and I), Genevieve Padalecki (Supernatural), Odette Annable (Supergirl), Chris Labadie (Nightmare Smile), Matt Barr (Valor, Hellcats), and Jeffrey Nordling (Big Little Lies). The CW series is written and executive produced by Anna Fricke (Being Human, Valor), and executive produced by Dan Lin, Lindsay Liberatore, and Padalecki. CBS Television Studios handles production, in association with Rideback.
