PHOENIX – Good news Supernatural fans! You will be able to see Jared Padalecki on a screen near you very soon.
The Supernatural brother will play Cordell Walker in the reboot of Walker, Texas Ranger shortened to be titled just Walker Deadline reports.
Cordell Walker, a man finding his way back to his family while investigating crime in the state’s most elite unit. Our broken widower and father of two returns home to Austin after being undercover for two years for a high profile case – only to discover that there’s even more work to be done at home. In a nod to the original series, Walker and his new partner — one of the only women in Texas Rangers’ history — are the modern-day heroes our world needs, following their own moral code to fight for what’s right, regardless of the rules.
Padalecki is said to be headlining and executive producing on the project. The show is being produced by CBS Studios and is rumored to air either on CBS, the original home of Walker; Texas Ranger, or the CW, home of Padalecki’s other show Supernatural.
The show will most likely be a reboot rather than a sequel. A release date for the show has not been announced.
In the meantime, Padalecki will finish the 15th and last season of Supernatural where he plays Sam Winchester, a hunter who teams up with his brother to stop supernatural beings.
The final season of Supernatural will air on Oct. 11.
