Walker Trailer: Cordell's "Tough Life" Is Getting A Whole Lot Tougher

Five episodes into the first season of The CW's Walker and it appears Cordell Walker (Jared Padalecki) is starting to get some level of control back to his life. On the professional front, he's beginning to establish a bond of trust with his partner Micki Ramirez (Lindsey Morgan)- though that's a road that still needs a bit more traveling down. Personally, he's beginning to reconnect with a family he barely knew. So there's no reason to assume anything could go wrong- right? Well, there's this one problem- one which is highlighted at the end of the following teaser "Tough Life." Because it looks like after everyone told him he was wrong and to move on, it seems like not everything is as clear-cut about his wife's (Genevieve Padalecki) death as everyone wants him to believe.

Here's a look at the newest teaser for The CW's Walker, returning next Thursday, March 11, with the Casey Fisher and Paula Sabbaga-written and Amyn Kaderali-directed episode "Bar None":

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.
