Supernatural hasn't ended yet, but star Jared Padalecki has his next project lined up.
Following his 15-year run on The CW series, Padalecki will executive produce and star in Walker, a reimagining of Walker, Texas Ranger. Joining him are executive producers Anna Fricke, Dan Lin, Lindsey Libertore and Dan Spilo; Fricke will also write. CBS is currently shopping the series, with The CW already emerging as a frontrunner.
According to Deadline's description, the series "will explore morality, family, and rediscovering our lost common ground. At the center of the series is 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."
Created by Albert S. Ruddy & Leslie Greif, the original series famously starred Chuck Norris in the title role. It ran for nine seasons, between 1993 and 2001, on CBS. Walker is intended to be "a straight reboot" of this series.
Until then, you can catch Padalecki in Supernatural Season 15, which stars Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins and Alexander Calvert and returns Thursday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
