A reimagining of Chuck Norris' CBS 1990s action drama series is in the works, starring Padalecki, who's wrapping up 15 seasons of Supernatural. "The project, written/executive produced by Anna Fricke (Valor) and executive produced by Dan Lin (Lethal Weapon), is being shopped by CBS TV Studios," reports Deadline's Nellie Andreeva. "I hear the CW, home of Padalecki’s long-running series Supernatural, has emerged as a leading contender for the new show, with CBS, which aired the Chuck Norris-starring Walker, Texas Ranger, also considered a possibility." Andreeva adds: "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." The original Walker, Texas, Ranger aired for eight seasons on CBS, from 1993 to 2001. The revival would be a straight reboot like CBS' Magnum P.I. and MacGyver. It won't be a sequel series.
