Syfy announced today that their long running series, "The Magicians," co-created by former "Supernatural" writer and showrunner Sera Gamble, will be ending after season five, which is currently airing.
Damian Holbrook of TV Insider interviewed creators Sera Gamble and John McNamara about the end. There's lots of good stuff in this interview if you're a fan. Luckily, the season finale was written as a series finale, which will hopefully offer closure the fans are looking for. Sera answered the question this way:
There's more casting news about Jared Padalecki's next project, "Walker." One of these cast members is very familiar to the SPN Verse!
First, Keegan Allen, who played Toby Cavanaugh on "Pretty Little Liars," will be playing, wait for it, Cordell Walker's brother! Yes, there will be brotherly drama in this show, which we know is in Jared's wheelhouse. Here's the snippet from Variety, who got the exclusive: (see the full article here)
I just saw this come across my Variety alerts and I must say, this was a shock to me! The female lead for Jared's next project, "Walker," has been found and it is another CW compadre who has also spent the last several years in Vancouver. One who I'm familiar with.
Lindsey Morgan, who plays Raven in the long running CW show "The 100," will be playing Micki, Cordell Walker's partner, according to Variety. Here's the blurb about her character per the article:
Morgan will play Micki, Walker’s new partner who was born and raised in San Antonio. Described as focused and perceptive, her family has been in Texas since before it was Texas. She’s been in the Army and on the police force and knows first-hand what it’s like to be singled out and discriminated against because of her gender.
I've got to say, I'm really excited for Lindsey on this. I've met her before and interviewed her twice when I was doing coverage for "The 100" for TV For The Rest of Us. This is a big move up for her, going from supporting character to lead. This is certainly well deserved, but I'm dying to know how she and Jared will do together. I've been watching both these actors for years and I'm having a hard time picturing them both together. A mash up of two of my favorite shows! Lindsey is an amazing actress though and I'm sure she'll do well.
Supernatural may be ending, but Jared Padalecki will continue to grace our TV screens. His show Walker, a reboot of the Chuck Norris classic Walker,Texas Ranger, has been given a straight to series order by the CW.
