Variety is exclusively reporting that Lindsey Morgan will star opposite Jared Padalecki in the upcoming Walker, Texas Ranger reboot series titled Walker at the CW.
The series focuses on 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 children, navigate clashes with his family, and find unexpected common ground with his new partner – one of the first women in Texas Rangers’ history – while growing increasingly suspicious about the circumstances surrounding his wife’s death.
Lindsey Morgan (whose credits include The 100 and Summertime) will be playing the role of Micki, Walker’s new partner who was born and raised in San Antonio. She’s focused and perceptive, her family has been living in Texas since before it was Texas. She’s been in the Army and on the police force and knows first-hand what it’s like to be singled out and discriminated against because of her gender.
Anna Fricke is set to write the series, as well as executive produce alongside Padalecki, Dan Lin and Lindsey Liberatore.
