KVUE – Supernatural’s Jared Padalecki will star in a restart of Walker, Texas Ranger, and there is a good chance the show will be filmed in Austin, where the actor calls home.
The City of Austin is negotiating an incentive agreement with Eye Productions for a 13-part production of the show. The deal is valued at $ 141,326 and would allow the reboot named Walker to begin filming in Austin from October 20 through April 2021.
According to a document from the city of Austin, Padalecki, who is also an executive producer on the show, “is campaigning for Austin production.” More than 50 percent of the production schedule is in the Texas capital.
The production team anticipates Walker fans will visit the Austin area.
The Texas Film Commission plans to offer an incentive of $ 9.3 million.
