‘Walker, Texas Ranger’ Reboot Cancelled by CW After Four Seasons

Jared Padalecki Confirms End of the Series After Four Seasons.


The CW has officially canceled its reboot of Walker, Texas Ranger after four seasons. Jared Padalecki, the series’ star and executive producer, confirmed the news via Instagram, expressing his gratitude to the show’s dedicated fanbase.

In his post, Padalecki wrote, “Howdy y’all. It is with a heavy heart that I share this news with you. Walker will not be airing on CW for a fifth season. It’s a tough piece of news to share, but we are SO thankful for the #WalkerFamily that has been built both on set and off.” He further acknowledged the support from the show’s cast, crew, and dedicated fanbase, thanking them for their involvement over the past four seasons.

The CW also released a statement, recognizing the contributions of the cast and crew and specifically acknowledging Padalecki’s long-standing relationship with the network: “We want to thank the entire cast, crew, writers, directors, and producers of Walker for their hard work and dedication over four incredible seasons… We also want to give a special thanks to star and executive producer Jared Padalecki, who has been a member of The CW family for over 20 years and was integral to some of the biggest hits on the network.”

The series, a reboot of the Chuck Norris starring 1993-2001 show of the same name, premiered on The CW in 2021, taking over the time slot from Padalecki’s previous long-running series, Supernatural. The show’s debut was significant for the network, attracting the most viewers for a telecast since 2018 and marking the highest-viewed series premiere in five years.

However, despite a strong start, Walker experienced a decline in viewership over subsequent seasons. The fourth season averaged 492,000 viewers, a decrease from the 690,000 viewers tuned in for Season 3.
