Abby soon finds herself precariously aligned with Hoyt Rawlins (Matt Barr, “Walker), a slippery rogue with a heart of gold, as they both seek 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.

One thought on “‘Walker’ Renewed For Season 4 & ‘Walker: Independence’ Cancelled By The CW”
Happy that Walker has a 4th season.
BIG MISTAKE not renewing Walker Independence.
Independence has a great diverse ensemble cast, talented actors ( that we have come to know and love) beautiful cinematography, a musical score that adds to each story, and storylines of the expansion of the American west.
Hopefully another network will see that Independence is a amazing western is that is worthy of a second season.
“Independence.” “No truer destination in the American West.”
