The new series premieres January 21st on The CW in Supernatural’s Thursday slot at 8 p.m.

Cast: Jared Padalecki,  Lindsey Morgan, Keegan Allen, Mitch Pileggi, Molly Hagan, Coby Bell, Jeff Pierre, Violet Brinson, Kale Culley, Odette Annable, Alex Landi, Chris Labadi, Matt Barr and Genevieve Padalecki.

A reimagining of the long-running series Walker, Texas Ranger, stars Jared Padalecki 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 Ario (Kale Culley) and his headstrong, somewhat rebellious teenaged daughter Stella (Violet Brinson) and navigate clashes with his family – an ADA brother Liam Walker (Keegan Allen) who stepped in during Walker’s absence, his perceptive mother Abeline Walker (Molly Hagen) and his traditional rancher father Bonham Walker (Mitch Pileggi).

Walker’s former colleague is now his Ranger Captain Larry James, (Coby Bell). Walker finds unexpected common ground with his new partner  Micki Ramirez (Lindsey Morgan), one of the first women in Texas Rangers’ history, while growing increasingly suspicious about the circumstances surrounding his wife Emily (Genevieve Padalecki)’s death.

Talking about Walker:

Jared and Genevieve Padalecki participated in Misha Collins’s wildly popular SPN Votes Watch Party, joking about filming Walker together.

You’re doing Walker with this guy. Are you out of your mind? — Jim Beaver to Genevieve.

Nepotism. I mean I’m tired of being at home. — Genevieve.

Do you not remember working with him before? — Jim Beaver.

Yeah, she has great memory loss which is why she married me in the first place. — Jared.

I will say our best relationship is the working one. — Genevieve.

Fans are excited.
