On 23rd September 2019 it was reported that Jared had his first post ''Supernatural'' project lined up -- a reboot of the '90s action procedural series ''[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walker,_Texas_Ranger Walker, Texas Ranger]'' that starred Chuck Norris. Coincidentally, in [[6.18 Frontierland]] Sam used the alias "Walker, Texas Ranger"! The original series ran for eight seasons from 1993 to 2001, and was moderately successful throughout its run.
 
  
According to publicity, the series, which will be called ''Walker'', would "focus on Cordell Walker as he returns from years undercover. A widower and father of two, he begins fighting crime with a new partner, who is one of the only female Rangers in history." Walker and his partner will be "the modern day heroes our world needs, following their own moral code to fight for what’s right, regardless of the rules." The show will be set, and film, in Austin where Jared and his family live.

''Walker'' will officially start filming Season 2 on September 1st 2021. ''Walker'' Season 1 will be out for DVD in October 2021
:: It’s ... a love song to Texas and the character is still obviously a Texas Ranger and somewhat of a maverick character with a very strong moral compass... This show, I’d say, is even more of a family drama just because Walker himself now is living on the ranch with his own parents, so it’s a real multi-generational story.

:: Walker is a character that can see things both ways — we call him the edge of the coin. We realized that unwittingly we were set up to have those conversations in the characters of Captain James, who is a Black man, and in Walker’s new partner, who is a Latinx woman. Given that we had the extra time, we tweaked the pilot slightly in that Captain James, as a newer captain who was promoted while Walker was gone on a case, is really here on a mission to bring progress into the department and to keep an eye on corruption.
