‘Walker’: Jared Padalecki Teases ‘Supernatural’ Reunion with Jensen Ackles for New Show

by Matthew Wilson

Dean and Sam Winchester may reunite in the future. Or at least the actors who play them. Jared Padalecki teased his “Supernatural” co-star Jensen Ackles appearing on “Walker, Texas Ranger.”

After-all, it must be a strange time for the duo. Both Padalecki and Ackles spent 15 years as brothers fighting a host of monsters, angels, and demons on “Supernatural.” The show recently wrapped up its final season earlier this year. Fifteen years is a long time to work on a project with someone. So it’s no wonder, Padalecki is already pondering their next team-up.

While Padalecki has a starring role on “Walker, Texas Ranger,” his co-star recently joined the popular superhero show “The Boys,” created by former “Supernatural” showrunner Eric Kripke.

“I cannot wait for Jensen to be on the show!” he told TVLine. “He’s doing ‘The Boys’ right now with [Eric] Kripke in Toronto, so he’s not even in the same country. But one of these days, he’ll have to come on and be my bow-legged friend. We’ll put him on horseback and give him a cowboy hat.”

Jared Padalecki’s Show Gets a Season Two

Fortunately, Ackles will have plenty of time to join his co-star on the show. Recently, “Walker, Texas Ranger” was picked up for not just a second season but also an additional five episodes in Season One.

“Though we’re just a few weeks into the new season, we wanted to get a strategic head start on next season with these early renewals, which allows our production teams to start laying out story arcs and hiring staff, and at the same time, continues to provide us with a strong, stable schedule to build on for next season,” CW President Mark Pedowitz told PopCulture.

According to the press release, the CW sees a positive and bright future for the reboot. Ratings-wise the show was a huge sucess.

“As The CW’s 2020-2021 season kicks into high gear, we are thrilled creatively with the direction of our first new shows out of the gate, ‘Walker” and ‘Superman & Lois,’ that we wanted to order the additional episodes to complete their first seasons, and we are particularly pleased with the huge success of the launch of ‘Walker,’ which debuted as our most-watched series premiere in five years,” Pedowitz also said.

Whether “Walker, Texas Ranger” can last as long as Padaleck’s previous endeavors remains to be seen.
