CW Gives Green-Light To Superman & Lois Spin-off, Walker Texas Ranger Reimagining

The CW is known for doing things differently from other networks. Aside from being the home of all things DC Comics-related, the network has chosen to give the go-ahead to two upcoming projects—without the usual pilot episode to judge from.

Reported earlier today, The CW has given the green-light for series orders on the Arrow-verse spin-off Superman & Lois and a reimagine or Walker, Texas Ranger starring Supernatural lead Jared Padalecki. Both projects will begin production in early Spring in order to present content to ad buyers in May.

Superman & Lois will star Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch, reprising their Arrow-verse roles, Superman/Clark Kent and Lois Lane. The series is said to focus on the complexities of the couple as parents while also having day jobs—and of course Kal-El’s 24/7 superhero career. The series will most likely be set after the events of the crossover event “Crisis On Infinite Earths,” which concludes this week. The series will be run by former Flash showrunner Todd Hellbing and, like the rest of the CW’s DC shows, will he produced by Greg Berlanti Productions and executive produced by DC head Geoff Johns.

Meanwhile, Padalecki will turn in his demon-hunting tools that he’s carried for 15 seasons for a badge and a gun. The Hollywood Reporter describes the reimagining as follows:

The new take follows Cordell Walker (Padalecki), a widower and father of two with his own moral code, who returns to Austin after being undercover for two years, only to discover there’s harder work to be done at home. He will attempt to reconnect with his children, navigate clashes with his family, and find unexpected common ground with his new partner (one of the first women in Texas Rangers’ history), while growing increasingly suspicious about the circumstances surrounding his wife’s death.

The original series starred Chuck Norris and aired on CBS from 1993 to 2001. CBS is the parent company of The CW.
