Well, I wasn't expecting this announcement in my inbox today!  It looks like Jared's little passion project has gotten some big attention this early in the season.  

"Walker," along with 11 other CW shows scored an early renewal from The CW today.  Not only is "Walker' getting a season two, but 5 additional episodes for season one were ordered, which now extends season one from 13 episodes to 18 episodes!

The CW has traditionally given early renewals to its shows, but this year has been different when so many have either just premiered or have yet to premiere because of COVID shooting delays.  "Walker" is in it's third week of airing, but the ratings for the first two episodes have been huge.  

Aside from "Walker," the other shows are "All American” (renewed for Season 4), “Batwoman” (renewed for Season 3), “Charmed” (Season 4), “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” (Season 7), “Dynasty” (Season 5) “The Flash" (Season 8), “In The Dark” (Season 4), “Legacies” (Season 4), “Nancy Drew” (Season 3), “Riverdale" (Season 6), and “Roswell, New Mexico” (Season 4).

So, we know that live ratings these days are not a major indicator of a show's success.  There's buzz on social media like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, there's online views, DVR ratings, yada yada.  But still, when a show you're hoping will succeed does such impressive live ratings right out of the gate, one has to take it as a really promising sign. 

Walker premiered last week to 2.43 million viewers, which incidentally was over 1 million viewers more than the "Supernatural" series finale.   Given their ratings these days, it's easily number one for The CW, by a lot. It was the largest audience for The CW in more than 3 years, the largest audience on Thursday in 4 years, and the best series premiere the network has had in 5 years.  That's quite something given how live ratings have dwindled so drastically.  

This week, as expected had a slight drop off, but it was still over 2 million.  2.11 million to be exact.  I know it's only 2 weeks in, but I think The CW can call this a hit.  If this keeps up, they can call this their new crown jewel.

As part of Jared's seemingly endless media blitz to promote his new show Walker, he made a quick stop to chat with the hosts of Good Morning America - What You Need to Know on the afternoon of Wednesday, Jan 27th. 

They began their chat by asking Jared about working with his wife Genevieve, first on Supernatural and now on Walker.  Jared laughed and said that's she's much better than him at watching the kids, so when they're on set together, he doesn't know what's happening with their children! He then explained how he and Gen met and dated while filming Supernatural, and now years later they are married with 3 children.
