While streaming our favorite shows is enjoyable, there can be a sense of anticipation and curiosity when we finish an entire season in one day. It leaves us pondering what’s next and seeking new entertainment options. However, there is something appealing about the traditional week-by-week release format, which allows for more disciplined viewing. That’s why the announcement of The CW’s new show, Walker Independence, caught our attention. Serving as a prequel to Walker, a modern adaptation of Walker, Texas Ranger, this series seems to have similarities to Yellowstone and is likely to captivate fans of the genre.
The original CW reboot of Walker, Texas Ranger introduced Jared Padalecki as the “new” Walker, who comes back to his hometown of Austin, Texas, after a year of working undercover. This modern take on the classic western series proved to be a success, prompting the network to expand the show’s universe with an intriguing new origin story.
If you’re curious about what to expect from Walker Independence, we’ve got you covered. We’ve gathered all the essential details about this prequel to the Western drama, including its storyline, release date, and cast.
