This fall, H&I’s lineup of compelling drama, action, and adventure gets a refresh with the addition of iconic action/crime drama Walker, Texas Ranger. Starting Monday, October 18th, the series will air seven days a week, with a three-hour block of back-to-back episodes Monday-Friday from 6pm-9pm ET/PT and two back-to-back episodes on Saturday mornings from 8am-10am ET/PT, with an additional two-hour block airing on Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 4pm-6pm ET/PT.
Inspired by the 1983 western film Lone Wolf, McQuade also starring Chuck Norris, Walker, Texas Ranger follows the crime-stopping adventures of Sergeant Cordell Walker (Norris), a member of the Texas Rangers, and his partner and best friend Jimmy Trivette (Clarence Gilyard). Known for its high-octane action sequences featuring iconic explosions, fistfights, and slow-motion stunts, the series combined the thrill of action movies with the old wisdom of the Wild Wild West. Walker relied heavily on his martial arts practice and skill to take down his opponents and often introduced the philosophy of the practice to members of his community.
Walker, Texas Ranger originally debuted on CBS in 1993 and aired for eight seasons. Its popularity resulted in a 2005 made-for-television film, Walker, Texas Ranger: Trial by Fire, a short-lived 1999 spin-off, Sons of Thunder, and three novels. A reboot of the original series premiered on The CW earlier this year, starring Jared Padalecki.
The new fall H&I schedule will also include a captivating daytime marathon each weekday, featuring five back-to-back hours of classic series Nash Bridges on Mondays, Monk on Tuesdays, JAG on Wednesdays, MacGyver on Thursdays and Baywatch on Fridays, airing from 12pm-5pm ET/PT.
