The CW canceled many of their beloved shows in recent years, and Walker is the latest to end up on the chopping block. The reboot of the beloved ’90s series led by Jared Padalecki has officially been canceled after four seasons.

This crime action drama stars Padalecki as Cordell Walker, a legendary Texas Ranger who must put his life back in order after spending two years undercover. After returning home to Austin, Walker must do everything he can to reconnect with his children, while trying to get to the bottom of his wife’s death.

The cancelation of this series is most likely a part of The CW’s cost-cutting efforts, and it’s been on the horizon for quite some time. Things started looking bleak when Walker was removed from the network’s fall schedule, shortly before its sets were dismantled in Austin, Texas.

The CW eventually released an official statement announcing that Walker would end with Season 4, and the leading man Jared Padalecki confirmed the news on social media.

“Howdy y’all. It is with a heavy heart that I share this news with you. Walker will not be airing on #CW for a fifth season. It’s a tough piece of news to be sure, but we are SO thankful for the #WalkerFamily that has been built, both on set and off,” he wrote on Instagram.
