Some may argue that in this day and age, remakes and reboots of past movies and shows tend to go a bit overboard. And while we'll sometimes agree with that sentiment, there are a few that we're already itching for the newest season of, like The CW's Walker.

The American drama, which is a reimagining of the 1993 hit western series Walker, Texas Ranger (starring Chuck Norris), stars Supernatural alum Jared Padalecki and has made quite a splash in the fall TV lineup the past couple of years. It follows Cordell Walker, a Texas ranger who navigates life as a widower with his two children in Austin after returning home from being undercover for two years. But as a plethora of new shows hitting the screen get canceled after a few episodes or seasons, fans of the three-season running Austin-based thriller are left wondering — can they count on a fourth?

The short answer is: Yes!

Read on for everything we know about Season 4 of Walker.

Is there a release date for Walker season 4?

It's time to mark your calendars, folks. Walker season 4 will air new episodes starting Wednesday, April 3 at 8 p.m. ET on the CW. The news was revealed by TVLine in mid-February, with the show's social team also dropping the announcement in a video on Instagram.

The news of a release date and trailer comes after Walker was renewed in May 2023, ahead of the season 3 finale. "I’m so excited and grateful to continue theWalker legacy for another season alongside our partners at CBS Studios and The CW," said Jared, who also serves as an executive producer, when the news was announced.

Variety also reported that season 4 will have 13 episodes, a shorter season compared to the 18 in seasons 1 and 3 and the 20 in season 2. The new season of Walker was initially expected to be released sometime during the summer of 2024, so the impending spring release date is a pleasant surprise for fans.
