Presently in the midst of filming his 15th season of “Supernatural” as Sam Winchester, Lone Star State-born and raised Jared Padalecki has the potential to bring a reboot of “Walker, Texas Ranger” to the small screen! On Monday, September 23, 2019, CBS TV Studios confirmed that he’ll play what was formerly Chuck Norris’ role as Cordell Walker in a reimagining of the action series that ran for eight years, from ’93 to 2001.

Like the reboots that have come before it, such as Hawaii Five-O and Magnum P.I., the intent of this series will be based on its original concepts, centered around family and morality. Today.com reported earlier that the remake will have “a special focus on rediscovering the common ground that unites us all.”

“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,” Deadline described. “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 addition, Walker will have a female partner with which to fight crime. Together, this unique pair will be “the modern-day heroes our world needs, following their own moral code to fight for what’s right, regardless of the rules.”

The series is reportedly being produced for The CW, which is also the network home of “Supernatural.” According to Deadline, the show will be a full reboot as opposed to a sequel series, directly connected to the original. 37-year-old Padalecki first came on the scene as Dean, Rory Gilmore’s boyfriend on the popular “Gilmore Girls” series. His Texas roots make him the perfect fit for the reimagining of the “Walker, Texas Ranger” series, which is said to simply be titled “Walker.”
