‘Walker, Texas Ranger’ Is Back Right When America Needed Him Most

Thats right y’all, the moment you had no idea you were waiting for. The roundhouse kicking Texas Ranger is back.

They have heard all of my prayers and received all of my letters apparently. The Lone Star State will once again be protected by the Rangers (no, not the baseball team).

Deadline first reported the story:

Like the original series, created by Albert S. Ruddy & Leslie Greif, the reboot, in which Walker is getting a female partner, will explore morality, family, and rediscovering our lost common ground.

At the center of the series is Cordell Walker (Padalecki), a man finding his way back to his family while investigating crime in the state’s most elite unit. Our broken widower and father of two returns home to Austin after being undercover for two years for a high profile case – only to discover that there’s even more work to be done at home.

In a nod to the original series, Walker and his new partner — one of the only women in Texas Rangers’ history — are the modern day heroes our world needs, following their own moral code to fight for what’s right, regardless of the rules.

All we can really hope is to see some Chuck cameos and a good amount of nods to the original that we all know and love.
