“Walker” Star Jared Padalecki Talks Season 4 Renewal

Jared Padalecki walker season 4

The CW’s “Walker” Season 3 just recently aired it’s finale episode and the cast and crew is now celebrating a Season 4 renewal!!

Jared Padalecki spoke about the show being renewed for a 4th season with Nerds&Beyond.

Jared shared:

“Oh my god, I’m so thrilled. I think maybe the Sam Winchester in me or something tries to just convince myself that the worst is gonna happen so that I don’t get disappointed. I don’t recall the last time I was on a TV show in the last 23 years where we didn’t know by May 8 whether we were going or not, certainly not with Supernatural. I was nervous. I was concerned, I love the show. I love my character. I love my cast. I love my crew.

The whole entertainment industry right now is changing, the writers are on strike and the directors and actors are due to negotiate at the end of next month. And so everything just kind of felt so wonky for life afterward. I just felt like I don’t know which way is up. And so I got into a mindset of, “Okay, well, if Walkerdoesn’t go, then what’s next? What does life look like?” I talked for many years about wanting to retire after Supernatural, and that wasn’t a lie. I was very honest. Like, “I’ve had 20 years in the industry and my wife and I were living in Austin and, I want to see what being a dad is like. I’m 40 at the time and got 3 kids, I’m gonna spend time with them.” I was thinking I was gonna walk away and hopefully be behind the camera producing and developing. And then when Walker happened, I kind of found a love for acting again and storytelling, and I think partially because I get to be a voice as a producer. So I was like, “Well, this is a lot more interesting to me than just getting lines and hitting my marks and saying them,” and so I really kind of fell in love with acting again. The style that we shoot on Walker is a lot [of] handheld and we play around and we improv a little bit. It really felt like I was in high school again, just discovering a love for acting. 

I really fell in love with Walker as a show and the character, the cast, the crew and I get to sleep in my bed in my home with my wife every night and see my kids and so I was like, “Man, I’ll do this forever.” So, not having heard before today, I was trying not to get a little nervous. Obviously getting the news today with the rest of the world, well, I got it a little bit before, but getting the news, it took probably two or three hours to sink in, like, “Hey, you’re going back, you get to do it again.” I’ve had a barrage of text messages and phone calls, as I’m sure you can imagine, from friends and fellow castmates. My phone just dinged and Jake Abel just texted, and [Richard] Speight just texted, and Robert Benedict texted. I’m getting a bunch of love and support and I’m getting really excited.”

Season 3 of WALKER picks up right where season 2 left off in the sobering aftermath of the question: “Where’s dad?” Texas Ranger Cordell Walker, played by Jared Padalecki (“Supernatural”), has his hands tied – literally. Taken and held captive by an anarchist group who is determined to break him, Walker must face a painful memory from his past he’s never shared with anyone and team up with an unexpected ally, Julia (Anna Enger, “S.W.A.T”), if he wants to get out alive.

Back in Austin, the Davidsons are officially gone, and the Walkers are free to move back into their family ranch — but the homecoming has been anything but jovial. Walker’s absence has caused a tornado that has shifted everyone off course, forcing them to abandon their new paths and step back into the familiar shoes of waiting for him to come home. Walker’s traditional Texan father, Bonham (Mitch Pileggi, “The X-Files”), and the no nonsense matriarch of the family, Abeline (Molly Hagan, “Herman’s Head”), struggle to stay optimistic as the heartbreak in their family piles up. Former ADA and Walker’s younger brother, Liam (Keegan Allen, “Pretty Little Liars”), takes matters into his own hands to track down his brother – but only ends up adding to the storm. Still dealing with the sting of her birth mother’s arrest, Geri (Odette Annable, “Supergirl”) tries to be the person to lean on for the Walkers, but — unbeknownst to them — has her own past catching up with her as well.

Fresh off her high school graduation, Walker’s sharp and stubborn daughter Stella (Violet Brinson, “Sharp Objects”) makes a decision about her future that creates rifts with her similarly wayward brother, August (Kale Culley, “Me, Myself and I”), who is determined to step out of his sister’s shadow and be big man on campus this year.

At Ranger HQ — Walker’s razor-tongued rookie partner, Cassie (Ashley Reyes, “How I Met Your Father”), has already had one partner disappear and will go to any lengths not to repeat the past — even if it means breaking Ranger procedure. Despite it all, she stumbles into a connection with the pompously charming Chief of Staff to the Mayor – who is keen on getting to know her and fitting into her life. The stalwart Captain of the Austin Rangers, James (Coby Bell, “The Game”), busies himself working with their new recruit — human Swiss Army knife Trey (Jeff Pierre, “Once Upon a Time”) – as Trey struggles to prove himself worthy of being the only Ranger who hasn’t come up on the traditional path.

In season 3, a tragedy from Walker’s past will resurface, forcing the family to examine old wounds and internal rifts that threaten to tear them apart. After everything the Walkers have been through, are they their own worst enemy?
