“My new character, Walker, is different than Sam, and so I’ve been spending time since they called, ‘That’s a wrap,’ getting back into that mindset,” Padalecki commented on the character transition in an interview with Variety

The revived show will follow Padalecki’s character, Cordell Walker, a widower and father of two. In the show, Walker returns home to Austin after two years of undercover work, tries to reconnect with his family, works with a new partner, and grows suspicious about the circumstances of his wife’s death.

Recently, the first photo from Walker set finally leaked online! Padalecki fans are looking forward to the show’s premiere next January, but spoilers, including much of the cast, have already begun to spill! CW fans can expect to see a couple of familiar faces, including The 100 alum Lindsey Morgan and Supernatural’s Mitch Pileggi.
