The Texas rangers are getting a whole new look.
CW announced Tuesday that is has picked up a remake of classic Chuck Norris CBS series "Walker, Texas Ranger" to series, featuring "Supernatural" and "Gilmore Girls" star Jared Padalecki in the title role. The original series aired from 1993-2001.
The new version, simply titled "Walker," will feature Padalecki as Cordell Walker, a widower and father who returns to his home in Austin, Texas, after two years undercover, and finds there is plenty of business for him. The series is created by Anna Fricke (“Being Human,” “Valor”), and executive produced by Padalecki. Padalecki's manager, Dan Spilo, who recently was kicked off CBS's "Survivor" after complaints of inappropriate touching and behavior, was originally named an executive producer of the project but has been removed.
CW also announced yet another DC Comics superhero show will be added to the network's lineup. "Superman and Lois" stars Tyler Hoechlin (“Teen Wolf”) and Elizabeth Tulloch (“Grimm”) as the comic book couple, and both actors have already played the roles on other CW superhero series. Like the other super shows, including "Arrow" and "Supergirl," "Superman and Lois" is produced by Greg Berlanti.
The series is the second TV show to take on the relationship between two of comic book history's most famous characters, after "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman," which ran from 1993-1997 on ABC with Dean Cain as Clark Kent/Superman and Teri Hatcher as Lois Lane.
CW did not yet announce premiere dates for "Walker" or "Superman and Lois," but they are planned for next season.
