A new face joins the Walker, Texas Ranger reboot!
The CW has enlisted Pretty Little Liars actor Keegan Allen in the upcoming series.
The reboot, simply titled Walker finds Jared Padalecki taking over the character of Cordell Walker, a role previously held by the iconic Chuck Norris.
Padalecki is “a widower and father of two with his own moral code who returns home to Austin after being undercover for two years, only to discover there’s harder work to be done at home.”
Variety reports that Allen, who is best known for his role as Spencer’s boyfriend Toby Cavanaugh on the Freeform (previously ABC Family) dream, will star as Padalecki’s younger brother, Liam Walker.
Liam is described as a “gay conservative” who was promoted to the assistant district attorney.
His official description reads: “Liam has always stayed close to home, often sacrificing his personal life in favor of his family duties. In Walker’s absence, he stepped up to take Walker’s kids under his wing. Liam’s close relationship with Walker’s son and daughter makes Walker slightly jealous.”
Also joining Walker is the previously reported The 100 star Lindsey Morgan. She’s been tapped as Walker’s first and female partner.
Unfortunately, not much is known about Morgan’s character. Will she simply be a partner or a love interest also?
Walker is slated to join The CW for the 2020-2021 season alongside recently picked up Superman & Lois, a spin-off starring Supergirl’s Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch.
Many People Prefer to Watch TV with their Dogs Instead of their Family, a New Study Finds
Watching a show without your dog can be “ruff.”
A new report by Rover.com found that as Americans increased their TV and streaming habits amid the pandemic, they have done so with a furry friend by their side.
Per the report, 57% of dog parents admitted to waiting for their dog to get into the room before watching a show.
Now, that isn’t entirely surprising because if you are a dog owner, you know dogs are great watching buddies… unless you have a dog like mine who barks at any animal on the screen. That makes things a bit more difficult, but still proves that he’s attentive!
The report found that 78% of Americans said they watch TV with their dogs very often or always.
Surprisingly, dogs were ranked #1 when asked who people prefer to chill out and watch TV with, with 40% of parents saying they’d choose their dog over a partner, friends, or even kids. And that’s because a majority of pet parents believe their pups are actively watching or reacting to what’s happening on the screen. (See my point above about my dog barking at animals on the screen!)
To make the binge-watching experience that much better for their pets, 70% have admitted to accommodating their pup by allowing them on the couch, giving them blankets, and even moving over so the dog is comfortable.
60% of pet parents even believe their dog has a favorite TV show, which would explain why 80% of dog parents admit to leaving their TV on for dogs when they’re not home.
The most popular genres? Comedy and action, which makes sense – after a long day of lounging and taking walks, Fido needs a good laugh or to get invested in a dramatic car chase!
During such uncertain times, there’s definitely comfort in knowing that you always have a TV buddy by your side!
And let’s be honest… is there anything your dog isn’t doing with you these days?
Netflix Renews Spanish Drama ‘Elite’ for Fifth Season Ahead of Season 4 Premiere, Adds News Cast Members
We’ve got some elite news!
Spanish drama Elite has been renewed for a fifth season at Netflix!
The news isn’t all that shocking considering the drama, set in the ritzy private school of Las Encinas in Spain, is one of the streamer’s best performing Spanish originals.
Not only is the cast incredible, the first few seasons were hinged around an intoxicating murder mystery and plenty of steamy love scenes.
The renewal comes ahead of the fourth season, which currently doesn’t have a premiere date. In 2020, filming was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic and an outbreak on set.
It’s possible the series will return in the spring/summer of 2021.
The upcoming season will see a handful of familiar faces including Samu (Itzan Escamilla), Guzman (Miguel Bernardeau), Omar (Omar Ayuso), Rebeca (Claudia Salas), and Ander (Aron Piper) as they were held back due to their shenanigans. The drama will also welcome new students Manu Ríos , Carla Díaz , Martina Cariddi and Pol Granch to shake things up.
Deadline also reports that the fifth season has added Argentinan actress Valentina Zenere (Soy Luna) and Brazilan actor André Lamoglia (Juacas) to its cast.
