The two new series will debut this fall on The CW.
Next autumn, Supernatural And Walker they will step back in time to tell the stories of those who came before their beloved protagonists. The Winchesters And Walker: Independence are two of the new series ordered by The CW for the 2022-23 season. The network presented them a few hours ago at the New York Upfronts with two long trailers.
The plot and cast of The Winchesters
Produced by the star of Supernatural Jensen Acklesalso narrator of the series, The Winchesters tells the epic and in many respects unknown story of Dean and Sam’s parents, John and Mary Winchester (played by Drake Rodger And Meg Donnelly), how they met and fell in love, and how they both put everything at stake to save not only their feelings but the whole world.
When John returns home from Vietnam, a mysterious encounter triggers a mission to trace his father’s past. During the journey, John meets Mary, a 19-year-old demon hunter, who is also looking for answers after her father goes missing. Together, the two join forces with young huntress-in-training Latika (Nida Khurshid, Station 19) and the accommodating hunter Carlos (Jonathan ‘Jojo’ Fleites) to uncover hidden truths about their families. The investigation takes them to a rare book emporium, whose owner, Ada (Demetria McKinney, House of Payne), is interested in the occult and could provide them with the missing pieces of the puzzle. But the secrets are very deep, for both the Winchesters and the Campbells, and despite the efforts of John’s mother, Millie (Bianca Kajlich, Legacies), to persuade his son from pursuing a dangerous life of demon hunting, he and Mary are determined to work together to support their families’ legacy as they begin to form a family of their own.
Walker: Independence’s plot and cast
Produced by the star of Walker (And Supernatural) Jared Padalecki, Walker: Independence is set in the 19th century and follows Abby Walker (Katherine McNamara, Arrow), a wealthy Bostonian whose husband is murdered before her eyes on their journey west. After crossing the road to Calian (Justin Johnson Cortez, 911: Lone Star), a curious Apache hound, Abby arrives in the small town of Independence, Texas, where she encounters quirky and quirky people fleeing their troubled past as they pursue their dreams, including Kate Carver (Katie Findlay, The rules of the perfect crime), a burlesque dancer with a perhaps too keen interest in Abby’s origins, and Kai (Lawrence Kao, Wu Assassins), a kind-faced Chinese immigrant, who runs a restaurant / laundry and offers the protagonist a sincere friendship.

Abby then runs into Hoyt Rawlins (Matt Barr, Walker), a lovable scoundrel looking for a purpose. A thief and con man with a dented heart of gold, Hoyt sees Abby as a sign until she turns the tables. In her quest for revenge, Abby also crosses paths with the magnanimous Deputy Sheriff of Independence, Augustus (Philemon Chambers), and his boss, Sheriff Tom Davidson (Greg Hovanessian, Another Life), who you have reason to believe is a very, very bad man. Abby and Hoyt soon find themselves aligned, as they both try to uncover the truth about the identity of her husband’s killer, and vow to save Independence, an expanding frontier town where nothing is as it seems.
