Modern Westerns have become all the rage in the past few years, largely thanks to Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan. The Kevin Costner-led series has since exploded and formed its own neo-Western universe with spinoffs and prequel series including 1883 with Tim McGraw and Sam Elliott and 1923 with Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford. Similarly, mystery crime procedurals like Longmire have been captivating contemporary audiences the same way classic John Wayne or Clint Eastwood Westerns did their parents and grandparents. The simplicity and rawness that exude from the modern Western are compelling to many who long for a simpler life. If this feels familiar or attractive to you, or if Westerns of any kind are just your thing, then Walker is the show for you.
The CW’s neo-Western series Walker starring Supernatural’s Jared Padalecki is the best binge for Yellowstone fans.
