It is not surprising as lately there have been a lot of renewals by the CW network due to popular demand which helps in expanding the catalog for the network with more original movies and shows. If you are curious about the fate of this franchise then we’ve got some exciting news for you!
Here we’ve put together a quick rundown of everything you need to know about the release date, plot, and cast, so you can get a head start on the next installment and be prepared before the series airs. Here’s all we know about Walker Season 3 so far.
Will there be a third season of Walker?
Yes, it’s official that the CW network has renewed Walker for the third season in March 2022. According to Variety, “As we prepare for the 2022-23 season, these scripted series, along with the alternative series we renewed earlier, will serve as the start of a solid foundation utilizing some of our most-watched series for us to build on for next year and beyond,” said Mark Pedowitz, chairman and CEO of The CW Network.
“These dramas are also important to our overall digital strategy, as they are some of our most-streamed and socially-engaged programming, and we look forward to adding more new and returning series to help strengthen and expand our multiplatform footprint.”
Walker Season 3 Potential Release Date
The exact release date of Walker Season 3 is yet to be confirmed by the CW network as of June 23, 2022, because the second season just ended a few hours ago. But on the bright side, as per many reports, the production will begin sometime this year. The fans seem to be assured that the upcoming season is not delayed and will be released sooner than they anticipated. As the network made the renewal announcement on schedule and months before the end of season two.
However, based on the pattern of the last two seasons’ release dates, we may anticipate that the premiere date for the third season will be in the next year. If we were to guess, we’d say the release date would be between mid and late 2023, Furthermore, we would want to emphasize that this is all speculation at this time. So, fans should wait for some time as the network will verify these details in the coming months which fans should keep an eye on.
Walker Season 3 Expected Plot
Walker Season 3 is expected to pick up from the finale episode of the second season, Something’s Missing, released on June 23, 2022. The episode was directed by Steve Robin and written by Seamus Kevin Fahey & Anna Fricke. The official synopsis of the episode states, “Gale comes clean to Geri about the past; Trey considers Capt. James’ latest offer.
As a result, the pilot episode of Walker Season 3 is intended to follow this already established idea. While it’s difficult to predict the second season’s exact plot structure this early on, it’s been speculated that the next season would pick up any cliffhangers and subplots and delve right into this world by giving fans something different to look at instead of the same old themes.
Many of the episodes have been favorably welcomed by viewers luring people in to watch the series when it airs on television or via streaming service. So, it will be interesting to see how they deal with this added pressure and introduce something new to the series.
Walker Season 3 Cast
The original cast from Season 2 is expected to reprise their roles. On the other hand, no additional casting announcements had been made by the network as of June 23, 2022. As a result, the following is a list of the series’ main characters:
- Jared Padalecki as Cordell Walker

Viewers will also be given character descriptions in the near future in order to better understand the dynamics and study those traits in relation to the plot of the upcoming season. As a result, we urge viewers to be patient because these developments will take time to emerge and the network will alert fans ahead of time if any new cast members will be joining the future season.
