Deadline is exclusively reporting that Genevieve Padalecki 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.
Genevieve Padalecki (whose credits include Supernatural and Flashforward) will be playing the recurring role of Emily, Walker’s strong, capable and generous late wife who is brave and focused on helping the disenfranchised. Appearing in flashback, Emily is a grounded and authentic hero in the Walker family.
