Deadline is reporting that Chirs Labadie 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.
Chris Labadie (whose credits include M.F.A. and Split Lip) will be recurring as Jordan, a hardened, tough ex-con who is in the Green Thumb and Grace program…and he’s also involved in a heroin smuggling operation. He’s a smarmy guy who knows how to get under Walker’s skin.
Walker will premiere on the CW on the 21st January 2021. There’s no official word as to where it will air in the UK/Ireland next year.
