The original Walker, Texas Ranger ran for eight seasons and 200 episodes on CBS from 1993 to 2001. The new reboot of the show, titled just Walker, will debut on January 21, 2021 on The CW.

Taking on the title role that was originally played by Chuck Norris will be Supernatural star and Texas native Jared Padalecki.

The series will also feature Mitch Pileggi as 'Walker's' father. He's probably best known as 'Agent Skinner' on The X-Files and from his role on Sons of Anarchy.

Jared Padelecki's real wife, Genevieve Padalecki, will also have a role in the series.

No matter how good or bad this reboot will be -- one thing is certain -- it will never top the original theme song sung by Chuck Norris:
