Renewal Of Walker For Season 4 And Anticipated Release Schedule
The CW officially renewed “Walker” for its fourth season, a decision that was announced in May 2023, as reported by Variety. The President of The CW, Brad Schwartz, highlighted the straightforward nature of this decision when it was made.
He pointed out that “Walker” had consistently been the network’s top-performing series during its three seasons. Schwartz attributed this success to the show’s dedicated fanbase, a remarkable cast, and a talented creative team led by Jared Padalecki.
Notably, Jared Padalecki has been a prominent leading actor on The CW for more than two decades, further underscoring the network’s confidence in the show’s ongoing potential.
While a specific release date for the fourth season of “Walker” has not been confirmed, initial plans by the CW had slated it for the 2023-2034 broadcast season, as reported by Deadline.
However, similar to the delays that have affected many scripted shows across various networks and streaming platforms, the release was pushed back. As of now, the exact return date for “Walker” season 4 remains uncertain, but it is expected to be sometime in 2024 at the earliest.
Returning And Potential New Cast Members For Walker Season 4
“Walker” Season 4 is set to feature several familiar faces returning from the previous seasons of the “Walker: Texas Ranger” reboot. Jared Padalecki, known for his role in “Gilmore Girls,” will reprise his character as Cordell Walker. Despite Walker’s solitary nature, he won’t be alone in the ensemble cast. The cast of “Walker” Season 4 will also include:
- Ashley Reyes as Cassie Perez
- Molly Hagan as Abeline Walker

- Violet Brinson as Stella Walker
- Mitch Pileggi as Bonham Walker
- Kale Culley as August Walker

While the returning cast is known, there’s anticipation for new additions to the ensemble. As of now, The CW and CBS have not officially confirmed any new cast members. Given that work on the upcoming season is likely still in progress due to the recent WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, the final cast list may not have been solidified, leaving room for potential cast changes or additions to be announced.
