Is Walker new tonight, April 1, 2021?

We’ve been without a new episode of Walker Season 1 for more than a week now. On that note, is Walker new tonight, April 1, 2021?

I’ve got more bad news for fans of the Walker, Texas Ranger reboot. There is no new episode of Walker on tonight. The reason for that is due to several interruptions in the show’s filming schedule. A bad storm hit Texas a little while back, you might recall, and it affected the entire area where the show films.

Not only that, but even show star Jared Padalecki was affected by the storm. Given the pandemic is still ongoing, the production has to be extra careful to take proper safety precautions when filming, so that combined with issues caused by the weather postponed filming and resulted in the show taking another impromptu hiatus despite just coming back from one not too long ago.

Instead of airing a new episode of Walker Season 1 tonight, The CW has opted to air back-to-back repeat episodes of Penn & Teller: Fool Us. Walker‘s usual timeslot buddy, Legacies, is also being preempted by the magic competition series (the two episodes are themed for April Fool’s Day).

When does Walker Season 1 return with new episodes?

While it is unfortunate that Walker won’t be airing a new episode tonight, fans don’t have to wait too much longer for Walker Season 1 to return.

Walker Season 1, Episode 8, “Fine is Just a Four Letter Word,” will air next Thursday in its usual timeslot of 8 p.m. EST on The CW. In the next installment, Cordell will be in a race against the clock to ensure his kids are safe when a massive storm strikes Austin, Texas. (How fitting!)

Plus, if you want, you can always head over to The CW website and rewatch the last few episodes of the season for free at any time, so it doesn’t have to be a completely Walker-less evening!

Walker returns with new episodes on April 8 only on The CW.
