Jared Padalecki’s new show on The CW is a rebooted version of Walker, Texas Ranger. Simply called Walker, it puts a new, modern-day spin on the original. In fact, some of its storylines may even have a bit of a “ripped from the headlines” feel to them. That’s because Padalecki and the new show’s creator, Anna Fricke, were inspired by some of the real-life events that were happening in Texas at the time and the questions they raised.
