Walker Star Keegan Allen Signals First Day Back Filming Season 4

With the strikes over, Walker star Keegan Allen signaled filming on the fourth season of the Jared Padalecki-starring series was underway.

When it comes to The CW, most of the conversations over the past year have had to do with its new ownership (Nexstar), the ending of the "Arrowverse," and how President of Entertainment Brad Schwartz's programming approach to the network has meant the end of The CW as we've known it. But we're putting aside the doom-n-gloom for a few minutes to share some good news about one of the remaining series – Jared Padalecki's (Supernatural) Walker. The word came down back in May that the series would be making the cut – albeit with a 13-episode fourth season. And then the combination of the SAG-AFTRA & WGA strikes hit the entertainment industry hard – forcing production shutdowns for months. But now, thanks to an Instagram Stories post that we screencapped below, Keegan Allen (Liam, brother to Padalecki's Cordell Walker) is letting the fans know that the team is back to filming the fourth season:

Now, here's a look back at one of the teasers/trailers & official overview for the third season of The CW's Walker:

Season 3 of Walker picks up right where season 2 left off in the sobering aftermath of the question: "Where's dad?" Texas Ranger Cordell Walker, played by Jared Padalecki ("Supernatural"), has his hands tied – literally. Taken and held captive by an anarchist group who is determined to break him, Walker must face a painful memory from his past he's never shared with anyone and team up with an unexpected ally, Julia (Anna Enger, "S.W.A.T"), if he wants to get out alive.

Back in Austin, the Davidsons are officially gone, and the Walkers are free to move back into their family ranch — but the homecoming has been anything but jovial. Walker's absence has caused a tornado that has shifted everyone off course, forcing them to abandon their new paths and step back into the familiar shoes of waiting for him to come home. Walker's traditional Texan father, Bonham (Mitch Pileggi, "The X-Files"), and the no nonsense matriarch of the family, Abeline (Molly Hagan, "Herman's Head"), struggle to stay optimistic as the heartbreak in their family piles up. Former ADA and Walker's younger brother, Liam (Keegan Allen, "Pretty Little Liars"), takes matters into his own hands to track down his brother – but only ends up adding to the storm. Still dealing with the sting of her birth mother's arrest, Geri (Odette Annable, "Supergirl") tries to be the person to lean on for the Walkers, but — unbeknownst to them — has her own past catching up with her as well.

Fresh off her high school graduation, Walker's sharp and stubborn daughter Stella (Violet Brinson, "Sharp Objects") makes a decision about her future that creates rifts with her similarly wayward brother, August (Kale Culley, "Me, Myself and I"), who is determined to step out of his sister's shadow and be big man on campus this year.

At Ranger HQ — Walker's razor-tongued rookie partner, Cassie (Ashley Reyes, "How I Met Your Father"), has already had one partner disappear and will go to any lengths not to repeat the past — even if it means breaking Ranger procedure. Despite it all, she stumbles into a connection with the pompously charming Chief of Staff to the Mayor – who is keen on getting to know her and fitting into her life. The stalwart Captain of the Austin Rangers, James (Coby Bell, "The Game"), busies himself working with their new recruit — human Swiss Army knife Trey (Jeff Pierre, "Once Upon a Time") – as Trey struggles to prove himself worthy of being the only Ranger who hasn't come up on the traditional path.

In season 3, a tragedy from Walker's past will resurface, forcing the family to examine old wounds and internal rifts that threaten to tear them apart. After everything the Walkers have been through, are they their own worst enemy?
