Plot Synopsis

This prequel to WALKER is set in the late 1800s, where Abby Walker, an affluent and tough-minded Bostonian, embarks on a journey out West with her husband Liam, when her husband is murdered before her eyes. After crossing paths with Calian, a curious Apache tracker, Abby arrives in the town of Independence, Texas, where she encounters diverse and eclectic residents running from their pasts, chasing their dreams, and keeping their own secrets, including Kate Carver, an idiosyncratic burlesque dancer with perhaps too keen an interest in Abby's origins, and Kai, a soulful Chinese immigrant who runs a local restaurant/laundry and offers Abby friendship without agenda. Abby also literally runs into Hoyt Rawlins, a slippery rogue, thief and con artist with a dented heart of gold who quickly eyes Abby as a mark, until she turns the tables on him. In seeking justice for her husband, Abby encounters Independence's noble deputy sheriff, Augustus, and his new boss, Sheriff Tom Davidson, who she has reason to believe is a very bad man indeed. Abby and Hoyt soon find themselves precariously aligned, both seeking to uncover the truth about the identity of Abby's husband's killer, and vow to save Independence -- a frontier boomtown where nothing is what it seems. After a two-month break, WALKER INDEPENDENCE returned with new episodes on Thursday, January 12, 2023 at 9pm ET/PT on The CW. In the winter premiere, "The Death of Mary Collins," Abby finds her secret identity in jeopardy when an estranged family member arrives in town and demands Tom's help finding Liam Collins' missing wife. A restless Hoyt reconnects with his outlaw roots, Kai contemplates his future as his past begins to catch up with him, and Calian receives a dire warning from a mysterious woman that may drive him back to Independence. The episode was written by Margaret Lebron and directed by Pamela Romanowsky.
On Thursday, March 2, 2023 at 9pm ET/PT, The CW premiered "Let Him Hang," the season finale of WALKER INDEPENDENCE. With Gus clinging to life, Abby, Hoyt, Kate, and Calian stop at nothing to expose Tom's true nature and end the Davidson reign over Independence once and for all. The episode was written by Seamus Kevin Fahey and Nicki Renna and directed by Yangzom Brauen.
