Walker: Independence is a Western drama series that premiered on The CW network in October 2022. Set in the late 1800s, the show follows Abby Walker, an affluent Bostonian whose husband is murdered before her eyes while on their journey out West. After crossing paths with Hoyt Rawlins, a lovable rogue in search of purpose, Abby travels to Independence, Texas and encounters diverse and eclectic residents running from their own troubled pasts, all while searching for a fresh start in the frontier town.

As Abby tracks down her husband's killer, she must learn the ways of the Wild West to survive. She gets assistance from Kate Carver, a deputy whose past closely parallels Abby's own, and crosses paths with diverse characters like Tom Davidson, a gay Black cowboy audaciously traversing the Old West while hiding his identity from those who would do him harm, and Kai Cuddback, a young Apache who chooses to live amongst the Independence townspeople after growing disillusioned with his tribe's way of life.

Throughout her journey, Abby learns lessons about empowerment, redemption, and what it means to start over. She evolves from a proper Bostonian lady to a true Western woman, all while bringing her modern sensibilities to Independence. Her friendship with Hoyt blossoms into an unlikely romance along the way.

With stunning vistas and an excellent ensemble cast portraying compelling characters, Walker: Independence provides an entertaining glimpse into the American frontier while depicting the real diversity that existed during the Old West era. Though set in the past, its themes around identity, morality, and second chances remain highly relevant today. The show's blend of drama, mystery, and romantic tension should appeal to a broad audience seeking an engaging Western adventure series.

Walker: Independence is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (13 episodes). The series first aired on October 6, 2022.

October 6, 2022
In the late 1800s, Abby Walker, an affluent and tough-minded Bostonian, embarks on a journey out west with her husband Liam, when her husband is murdered before her eyes. After crossing paths with Calian, a curious Apache tracker, Abby arrives in the town of Independence, Texas, where she encounters diverse and eclectic residents running from their pasts, chasing their dreams, and keeping their own secrets, including Kate Carver, an idiosyncratic burlesque dancer with perhaps too keen an interest in Abby's origins, and Kai, a soulful Chinese immigrant who runs a local restaurant/laundry and offers Abby friendship without agenda. Abby also literally runs into Hoyt Rawlins, a slippery rogue, thief and con artist with a dented heart of gold who quickly eyes Abby as a mark, until she turns the tables on him. In seeking justice for her husband, Abby encounters Independence's noble deputy sheriff, Augustus, and his new boss, Sheriff Tom Davidson, who she has reason to believe is a very bad man indeed. Abby and Hoyt soon find themselves precariously aligned, both seeking 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.
