Possible good news for Walker’s love life: Odette Annable, who currently appears as Texas Ranger’s pal Geri, has been promoted to regular series for the previously announced second season of the CW drama, TVLine has learned.
The reboot features supernatural vet Jared Padalecki as Cordell Walker, “a widower and father of two with his own moral code who returns to Austin after spending two years undercover only to find harder work to be done at home” official recap . Now he must “try to reconnect with his children, overcome clashes with his family, and find unexpected similarities with his new partner (one of the first women in Texas Rangers history).”
Annable’s character, former bar owner Geri, is an old friend of Walker and his late wife Emily – but that didn’t stop him from suspecting Geri could be linked to the murder of his spouse. However, in the final episode, Walker found Emily’s real killer and later shared a surprise kiss with Geri, who recently sold him her bar. The series, which was prematurely renewed in the second season in February, returns next Thursday, May 6, at 8/7 a.m. with a new episode.
Annable’s previous TV credits include Supergirl, Tell Me a Story, Pure Genius, Banshee, and House.
