Are you ready to join Cordell Walker on his next adventure as he fights crime and navigates through life’s ups and downs? Then you have reached the right place to know all about the recently renewed fourth season, which was confirmed to be a part of the CW’s 2023–24 schedule and has once again sparked much speculation among viewers around the world.
The fans of this action crime drama television series want to know how the story will unfold, prompting questions such as “When will fans be able to watch the fourth season?”
Sadly, the fans who want to stream the show as soon as possible will have to wait a while. For your convenience, we’ve compiled a brief summary of everything you can anticipate about the upcoming season, which includes the potential release date, plotline, cast, and other details. Continue reading to find out more about Walker Season 4.
Walker Season 4: Is it premiering in June 2023?
Even though we know that Walker Season 4 was renewed last month for May 2023 and will definitely return to television screens, the fandom will have to wait for some time as no confirmation about the release date has been disclosed yet. One of the main reasons is that the filming for the new season hasn’t even begun yet as the cast and crew are on a break, which is assumed to be over sometime around August for the production to resume in the summer season.
We would also like to highlight that on May 18, 2023, it was revealed that the CW is holding this season for a mid-season premiere. We assume that due to the ongoing writer’s strike, the release date might be pushed back so the creators to begin producing the show without any unnecessary delays on the way.
There is a huge possibility that the show might not aim for its usual fall premiere and will eventually be released sometime later or even in early 2024 in case the strike isn’t resolved soon. According to the latest reports, The CW is expected to cancel the majority of its scripted programs in favor of new lower-budget programs for 2023–2024.
So, the fans of Walker are lucky to have this series being saved and greenlit for another season, as it was the second show that The CW renewed for the 2023-2024 season, after All American, without it being abruptly canceled. As a result, it appears we are still a long way from premiering new episodes on The CW network in June 2023! Until there is any official confirmation, we’ll just have to wait for all the latest updates and hope for the best for its comeback.

Walker Season 4: What to expect?
The next season is anticipated to expand the core premise of the show, which is a reimagining of the long-running series “Walker, Texas Ranger,” which follows the adventures of Cordell Walker, a widower, and father of two with his own moral code, as he returns home to Austin after being undercover for two years, only to discover there’s harder work to be done at home.
He must attempt to reconnect with his creative and thoughtful son and his headstrong, somewhat rebellious teenage daughter and navigate clashes with his family – an ADA brother who stepped in during Walker’s absence, his perceptive mother, and his traditional rancher father. Walker finds unexpected common ground with his new partner while growing increasingly suspicious about the circumstances surrounding his wife’s death.
Right now, it is also fair to say that the exact plotlines haven’t been disclosed, as everything has been kept under wraps to avoid early spoilers. But we are certain that the fourth season will undoubtedly pick up from the final episode of the third season, “It’s a Nice Day for a Ranger Wedding,” in which the viewers got to see that “It’s a big day for the Texas Rangers and the Walker clan as friends and family gather to celebrate a very special event.”
“Over the past three seasons, Walker has become the top performing series on The CW with a passionate fanbase and a fantastic cast and creative team led by Jared Padalecki, who has now been a leading man on the network for over twenty years,” said Brad Schwartz, President of Entertainment, The CW Network. Further adding, “As we build a great big new future for The CW, we are thrilled to be staying in business with our partners at CBS Studios and we cannot wait to have Walker back on the schedule.”
Walker has been such an honor to portray, and I’m thrilled to bring him back for Season 4! On behalf of the cast and crew, we want share our love and gratitude for the show and its viewers. We’re all chompin at the bit to work alongside the CW and keep representing this family!… https://t.co/Y4YDnAOgoQ

Walker Season 4: Who will return to the cast?
The main cast members who are expected to reprise their roles in the fourth season are as follows:
Jared Padalecki as Cordell Walker, Ashley Reyes as Cassie Perez, Molly Hagan as Abeline Walker, Keegan Allen as Liam Walker, Violet Brinson as Stella Walker, Kale Culley as August Walker, Coby Bell as Larry James, Jeff Pierre as Trey Barnett, Odette Annable as Geri Broussard, and Mitch Pileggi as Bonham Walker.
There can be some new additions and removals in the cast, which will be disclosed later as the premiere date draws closer to the official release. Additionally, Walker is written and executive produced by Anna Fricke and executive produced by Dan Lin, Lindsey Liberatore, Padalecki, Steve Robin, and Russel Friend. The series is from CBS Studios in association with Rideback.
Walker Season 4 Episodes: Where to stream?
The next season is confirmed to include a total of 13 episodes with an average runtime of 40–42 minutes per episode, which will be released on a weekly basis like the prior seasons. The number of episodes has decreased this year, which is surprising, and we assume that this is mostly due to cost-cutting efforts on the part of CBS Studios, which is producing the series with great efficiency in order to keep the network profitable.
Moreover, details about the episode titles and synopsis will be disclosed later once the release date draws close in order to avoid spoilers.
All of the seasons of Walker are accessible on the CW app or website after the episode is broadcast on the channel. Additionally, viewers may access all of the seasons of Walker on Google Play, Amazon Instant Video, and Vudu all offer the series for rent or purchase., where they can choose where they want to watch new episodes and which membership options suit their needs. In Canada, the series airs on the CTV Drama Channel.
