Walker Season 2: Release Date, Cast, And More

(Welcome to ...And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)

The CW managed to keep longtime "Supernatural" star Jared Padalecki in the family this year by making him the lead of "Walker." The show serves as a reboot of the Chuck Norris classic "Walker, Texas Ranger." Good news for those who like handsome lawmen, as the show will be back for a second season later this year.

Here is everything we know about "Walker" season 2.

Walker Season 2 Release Date and Where You Can Watch It

"Walker" season 2 is set to premiere Thursday, October 28 on The CW at 8 p.m (ET). For those who prefer streaming, The CW releases new episodes of its shows the next day on its website to stream. While it's likely that the full season will eventually make its way to a major streaming service, those who want to get in on the action right away have options.

What is Walker?

"Walker" is The CW's attempt to reboot the legendary Chuck Norris vehicle "Walker, Texas Ranger." While doing any Chuck Norris thing without Chuck Norris seems like a fool's errand, it seems like this one is going pretty well so far. Though if they wanted to get Norris to cameo at some point, wouldn't that be neat?

Here is the (rather lengthy) synopsis for Walker.

WALKER, a reimagining of the long-running series "Walker, Texas Ranger," stars Jared Padalecki ("Supernatural") as Cordell Walker, a widower and father with his own moral code, who returns home to Austin, Texas after being undercover for nearly a year, only to discover there's harder work to be done at home. Walker will attempt to reconnect with his creative and thoughtful son, August (Kale Culley, "Me, Myself and I") and his headstrong, somewhat rebellious teenaged daughter, Stella (Violet Brinson, "Sharp Objects") and navigate changes with the rest of the family. His ADA brother, William "Liam" (Keegan Allen, "Pretty Little Liars") returned home from New York and stepped in during Walker's absence, making it all the more difficult for Walker to resume his place in the family. The perceptive matriarch of the Walker clan, Abeline (Molly Hagan, "Herman's Head") doesn't hesitate to speak her mind to keep everyone in line and their traditional rancher father, Bonham (Mitch Pileggi, "The X-Files") isn't much for long winded, sentimental prattling, but voices his opinion when it counts most. At work, Walker's former colleague, Larry James, is now his Ranger Captain, (Coby Bell, "The Game") and both men need time to adjust to their new dynamic. Walker finds unexpected common ground with his new partner, Micki Ramirez (one of the first women in Texas Rangers' history) played by Lindsey Morgan ("The 100"). She knows there's a lot at stake for her in this new job and is quick to school Walker on curbing his maverick ways. Walker's not Micki's only distraction, as her relationship with an old friend, Trey (played by Jeff Pierre, "Once Upon a Time") becomes more serious. The series closely follows Walker as he tries to balance all the new details in his old life while growing increasingly suspicious about the circumstances surrounding his wife's (Genevieve Padalecki) death.
