Despite being one of The CW’s biggest hits in recent years, Walker will soon hang up his hat. The Western drama led by Jared Padalecki will come to an end with its fourth season after The CW officially announced its cancelation.

Based on the 90s series Walker, Texas Ranger, this modern-day reboot starred Jared Padalecki as legendary Texas ranger Cordell Walker, who must return home to Austin and reconnect with his family after spending two years undercover.

Despite finding major success, Walker didn’t make it to The CW’s fall schedule, and its future has been uncertain ever since. The decision to cancel it was officially announced days after the Walker set had been dismantled in Austin, Texas.

The CW released an official statement thanking “the entire cast, crew, writers, directors, and producers of Walker for their hard work and dedication over four incredible seasons”, including its star and executive producer Jared Padalecki, who has been a member of The CW family for over two decades.

Padalecki took to social media to share his thoughts after the cancelation and thanked the cast, crew, and fans who made this show possible.

“It has been a unique honor to be a part of the cast and crew (and fandom!) that helped Walker tell the stories that we told. I will forever smile on the years I got to spend with the cast and crew and studio and network and fandom that made this all possible,” he wrote to Instagram.
