The Walker universe on CW is looking to become distended with Walker: Independence, an origin story from the Mother ship series’ executive producer Jared Padalecki (Walker), creator and showrunner Anna Fricke and executive producers Seamus Fahey, Lindsey Liberatore and Dan Lin.
The executive producer, also an actor, is known for producing hit shows such as Gilmore Girls and the films New York minute and House of Wax. The experienced 39-year-old who grew up in Texas gives us a taste of the West in this series. Men and women riding horses and chariots with revolver pistols on their waist and shotguns can pop up at any moment.
Will There be a Season 2 of Walker: Independence?
Jared Padalecki, the executive producer of Walker Independence, said that efforts are being made to find a new home for Season 2 because he isn’t giving up on the possibility that the programme may find a way to continue. The CW cancelled the Walker prequel series on Tuesday, and Padalecki says, “We are aggressively looking for a place that Walker Independence can land.” Padalecki is speaking to TVLine, a sister site of Deadline.

Walker: Independence Season 1 Ratings:
The 18-49 demographic for Walker: Independence’s first season averaged a 0.05 rating and 497,000 viewers (including DVR replay to 3:00 AM). These figures are a fairly good sign of how a show is performing, especially compared to other programmes on the same channel, even though they do not consider subsequent delayed or streamed viewing. Other economic reasons may play a role in a show’s demise, but higher-rated shows get renewed while lower-rated one’s get cancelled.
Also, the show gets a Tomatometer rating of 71% and an audience score of 93% as per RottenTomatoes website, which is impressive.
Walker: Independence Season 1 Recap:
In Season 1, Abby Walker, a wealthy and independent Bostonian, and her husband Liam set off for the West in the late 1800s. Sheriff Tom Davidson is desperate to find the enigmatic individual responsible for the recent bank robbery. Abby returns to the horrific location of her death in search of clues to help identify the cold-blooded criminal hiding in town.
When faced with a challenge, Abby deftly spots a chance to unseat the sheriff; Hoyt and Calian must cooperate to thwart a group of robbers; and Kate is unrelenting in her quest for information regarding Abby. The extent of Davidson’s influence is revealed when Abby and Hoyt agree to complete a seemingly routine task for Tom Davidson. Kate utilises the annual Founders’ Day celebrations to upset the local power structure.
Abby and Kate’s friendship is tested when Tom Davidson finds himself in the untenable situation of aiding a former criminal partner while maintaining his position as the town’s new sheriff.
Abby looks further into her husband’s background; Gus and Calian follow a hunch that involves them investigating a former mentor; They charged Calian with a horrific crime; and Tom, in defiance of Kate, tries to win over a railway executive.
Calian tackles traumatic memories to rid himself of guilt, Abby commits herself to a case that could mean the difference between life and death, and Gus evaluates a friendship versus his badge.
When an estranged family member arrives in town and requests Tom’s assistance locating Liam Collins’ missing wife, Abby finds her cover identity in danger. Hoyt, who is restless, retraces his outlaw past, while Kai muses over his future.
To the surprise of her friends, Abby doubts everything she previously believed to be true; Kai believes he has seen a ghost when a surprise visitor from his past shows up in Independence, and Gus makes a move no one expects. Abby and Tom need refuge as a dust storm approaches Independence; Gus has a lead that might assist Calian, and Kate, Hoyt, and Lucia collaborate.
Walker: Independence Season 2 Release Date: When will it air?
On March 2, Walker: Independence’s first season ended, and the closing credits did not reveal whether Season 2 is planned. Being a spinoff of a series that had previously lasted for several seasons and featuring Kat McNamara, an established CW star, gave the show a winning formula for success. That being said, considering cancellations and endings, the future is extremely unknown for most CW shows.
Showrunner Seamus Kevin Fahey revealed there is a backup plan in case The CW decides not to renew the show for Season 2. What alternative options are there if The CW isn’t prepared to advance? Therefore, it would logically result in that,” said Fahey. “Long story short, nobody wants it to stop. To prevent that, we’ll take all reasonable precautions.”
Walker: Independence Season 2 Plot: What is it about?
For cinephiles who love when things are taken back in time to the early centuries before the 2000s, the movie is a set in the late 1800s, an origin story of The CW’s current hit series “Walker,” WALKER INDEPENDENCE follows Abby Walker (Katherine McNamara (The Stand), “Arrow”), an affluent and tough-minded Bostonian whose spouse is murdered before her eyes while on their journey out West. Abby crosses paths with Hoyt Rawlings on her quest for revenge, a lovable rogue on a hunt for purpose.
Abby and Hoyt’s journey takes them to a town called independence, Texas, where they run into diverse, eclectic residents escaping from their troubled pasts and chasing their dreams and keeping their secrets, including Kate Carver (Katie Findlay, “The Carrie Diaries”), a distinctive burlesque dancer with perhaps so much keen interest in Abby’s origins, and Kai (Lawrence Kao, “Wu Assassins”), a soulful Chinese settler who runs a local restaurant and laundry and offers Abby friendship without agenda. Our newfound family will grapple with the changing world around them while becoming agents of changing themselves in an urban area where nothing is what it seems.
