WALKER: Jared Padalacki Steps into the Iconic Boots of the Texas Ranger in the New Trailer! (UPDATE: The Extended Trailer Drops!)

By: John M Jerva

UPDATE: The CW has officially dropped an extended trailer and new key art and images for their reimagining of Walker which stars Supernatural alum Jared Padalacki! Check them both out below!

ORIGINAL POST: Well, once again love it or hate it, we now have our first official footage of The CW’s reimagining of Walker which Chuck Norris made famous in the long running TV show back in the 90’s. This time around, we have Supernatural’s Jared Padalacki stepping into the boots of the famous lawman and you can check it out below courtesy of the man himself who shared the new teaser on Twitter!

As the trailer begins, Padalacki introduces himself and then we learn that his wife has died recently but it looks mysterious of course. The new teaser certainly revs up the excitement and it looks like the show will be hitting the airwaves in January!

Walker, 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.

I am a massive fan of the original with Norris and unlike many out there, I am going to give this one a shot. I’m not one to condemn something before I even get a chance to see it. It will be interesting to see how it’s received though. The first trailer, when released, will definitely give me a more clear opinion.

Watch the new trailer below snd get ready to ring in 2021 with a younger breed of justice on January 21st when Walker hits the streets!
