Variety is exclusively reporting that Keegan Allen is the latest name to join the cast for 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.
Keegan Allen (whose credits include Pretty Little Liars and King Cobra) will be playing the role of Liam Walker. Smart, slightly smug, but with a strong moral compass, Liam is Walker’s younger gay and conservative brother who has been recently promoted to assistant DA. Liam and Walker are close, but Liam gives his brother no shortage of tough love. Liam has always stayed close to home, often sacrificing his personal life in favour of his family duties. In Walker’s absence, he stepped up to take Walker’s kids under his wing. Liam’s close relationship with Walker’s son and daughter makes Walker slightly jealous.
Anna Fricke is set to write the series, as well as executive produce alongside Padalecki, Dan Lin and Lindsey Liberatore.
Allen will star alongside Jared Padalecki and Lindsey Morgan.
