Walker, Texas Ranger is set to serve up more martial arts-fueled, Lone Star state justice in a new TV version of the beloved Chuck Norris action series.
Supernatural star Jared Padalecki is set to executive produce and succeed Norris in the upcoming show Walker, described as a "straight reboot" in the same vein as the recent CBS reboots Magnum PI and MacGyver.
Deadline broke the news and has further details on the premise:
Both CBS, the original home of Walker, Texas Ranger and current home of Supernatural, and CBS Television Studios are reportedly shopping Walker. Anne Fricke (Valor) is attached as a writer and executive producer alongside Dan Lin (Lethal Weapon) and Dan Spilo (Sunnyside).
