While traditional Western films aren’t as prevalent as they once were, Neo-Western TV shows are among some of the most popular and acclaimed dramas on the small screen – like Paramount Network’s Yellowstone or CW’s Walker. However, it appears that the old-school Western genre is beginning to appear on TV in the form of spin-offs set in the past, such as Yellowstonebroccoli – 1883 and next 1923 – And the next competition, Independence Walker.
In fact, this new series has the unique advantage of being a precursor to the reboot, like the show – which stars previously supernatural Cast member Jared Padalecki as Honorary Lawman – loosely inspired by the long-running crime action of the 1990s starring Chuck Norris and his famous kicks. Will Independence Walker Living up to the enduring legacy of this TV classic, how will it connect to the current iteration of The CW, and when can fans expect to see it? The latter is the first question we answer in the following analysis of everything we know about the series so far.
Walker Independence premieres on The CW in October 2022
The fall TV schedule for 2022 is packed with exciting premieres to look forward to, including the debut of Season 3 Walker Thursday, October 6, 2022 at 8 PM ET. That same night, viewers will also be dealing with the next chapter in the series’ legacy…or perhaps we should say, “Chapter One.”

However, we don’t know much about his family tree then, but that’s all about to change.
The series – set in the late 19th century, according to Limit It follows a Boston, Massachusetts native named Abigail “Abby” Walker, who finds herself in the quaint Texas town of Independence on her quest to avenge her murdered husband. The filmmakers behind the new series have yet to reveal exactly how Abby relates to Jared Padalecki’s Cordell Walker and we may have to wait late in the season for that discovery. However, I can’t imagine that this would test viewers’ patience too much, because the idea of an old Western TV show with a main heroine is exciting enough on its own.
