Deadline is exclusively reporting that Molly Hagan 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.
Molly Hagan (whose credits include Sully and Truth Be Told) will be playing the role of Abeline Walker, Walker’s mother, an unstoppable force of nature. Abeline is a third generation Texas rancher. Smart and perceptive, she always puts the family first and never hesitates to give advice whether asked for or not.
Anna Fricke is set to write the series, as well as executive produce alongside Padalecki, Dan Lin and Lindsey Liberatore.
